It was very misogynist. None of the stories were particularly inventive, I felt like the artist had never seen an actual female body in their lives(most of the women were super muscular and busty, yet had 15 inch waists...)

I think this series is good but it had potential to be so much more. It starts out really strong incorporating the actual Grimm's fairy tales into the storytelling but kind of abandons that as the series goes on. The biggest issue I have with it is that every woman you see, whether heroine or heroine addict is drawn in the likeness of a porn star with the outfit to match. There is no actual nudity in the comics but its a very blurry line in some cases with only a conveniently located arm or leg ...more

First of all, the 'Grimm' in the title is not a name, but an adjective. A friend gave this to me because she knew I wanted to read Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales; she was misled in an Amazon description and got this for me. A graphic novel loosely based on Brothers Grimm's tales, the characters seem to undergo the same basic plot points, then ending either or both in bloodshed/nudity. Although predictable, this volume is hilarious. I like to keep it around just to spark conversation.

Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Hansel & Gretel, Rumplestiltskin, Sleeping Beauty, The Robber Bridegroom (kinda like Snow White Rose Red, to me right up til the end ☺), Snow White, Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks, The Frog King (Vertigo's Fables did SUCH a better job here), Bluebeard, The Pied Piper of Hamelin (to set up for the Piper miniseries) and -- oh, yeah -- Belinda takes over storytime!

While I liked the ideas behind the collection, I thought some of the graphics were a bit too gory, especially in all it's colorful richness.
