Is the Big Bad Wolf as bad as history would have us believe? Take the BB Wolf and put him in Mississippi in 1920, put the 3 little pigs in power, and set it to a blues soundtrack and you have set the stage for a story that delves deep into racism, murder and revenge. This is one for older teens as it gets violent when BB Wolf begins his murderous rampage. The illustrations are in black and white which fits the setting and also dims the harshness of the violence depicted. The story is told in 1st person through BB Wolf's eyes and reads like a confession of sins. Characterization is good, and the reimagining of this classic fairtale is interesting, though the violence did bother me a little (though to be honest I am not one for blood, guts or gore). Great art and a graphic novel that made me think.
