The adventures of Red and Mister Woof have only just begun. In Fablewood, all of the stories that have ever been told live side-by-side. But it is an evil place, overseen by the awful Mister Grimm and his cadre of Think Police. Red and Woof want to escape to a world where their friendship isn't prohibited, but nothing can prepare them for what lies ahead in the Dark Forest.

    All in all Fairy Quest Outcasts #1 is a fun read. It continues an enjoyable story and gives readers hope that this series is not cancelled and forgotten. While I normally recommend this to new readers to pick up a comic like this without any backstory, I highly recommend buying Fairy Quest Outlaws first before reading Fairy Quest Outcasts #1 if you haven't already. You'll be glad that you did as it makes Fairy Quest Outcasts #1 all the more enjoyable to read. I can't wait for the next issue to see more of Red, Woof and Fablewood. Read Full Review

    Fairy Quest is a very fun read that is filled with thirty-two pages of quality storytelling and imagery that is worthy of our hard earned money. Read Full Review

    The dialogue is too jam-packed and the plot archetype is familiar - two unlikely companions fight the system a la Divergent or Shrek - but Ramos and Olea make it so pretty, we enjoy seeing this new world unfold. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Nov 6, 2014

    Jenkins includes some other intriguing moments in the issue, including some other recognizable characters and nods to the overarching theme of the restrictions of the characters will power. The balance in this issue is even better handled, as the consideration for the ramifications of deviancy, will, and control feel a bit more subtle. At one point, Jenkins includes a scene that asks why a person would act mean if they could act differently. While the story manages to be both visually and conceptually involved enough to be engaging for adult and young adult readers, the messages about being a free-thinker and kindness resonate to a wider audience. With recognizable characters and a very exciting surface story, Jenkins, Ramos and Olea continue to craft a very impressive and worthwhile story. The universe in Fairy Quest is rich with potential and with a solid tease to end the issue, readers will be craving more of this series, yet again. Read Full Review
