    Damsels #1 is a very entertaining first issue that easily earns a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 7, 2012

    It’s an average comic, but there are a lot of simple things that the series can do to improve. Not much of the overall plot was revealed in this issue so if more of the proverbial beans are spilled in the next issue that would be a big improvement. Also the pacing needs to calm down and find the right balance when it transitions between characters. Otherwise, it had strong dialog and interesting concept with great art to boot. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jul 10, 2012

    Damsels will immediately be compared to Fables and Fairest because of its setting and characters but its definitely got a different feel to it. Unfortunately, this first issue is not going to be enough to hook most people in. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Sep 7, 2012

    The biggest crime of Damsels is that is just fails to engage in this first issue. While the world is an intriguing one, setting up concepts of outlanders and several monarchies at play, the plotting is too scattered for the reader to latch onto any single element. It may have been enough to concentrate on the 'fleeing redhead' storyline, unveiling her story over time, yet we get a whole lot of information at once. The artwork is purely functional, neither wowing or disappointing, which is really as much as can be said for this first issue. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Eric "djotaku" Mesa Aug 31, 2012

    Overall, I can't say this series really succeeded in pulling me in. Whether or not you would like it probably depends on whether you are really into fairy tales and aren't getting your fix from Fables or Fairest (which seems to potentially have a similar setup). I just don't really end up caring who the girl with the red hair is. Again, next month will tell if the writers are writing for the trades or if it's just a story that doesn't gel with me.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 10, 2012

    The story has potential, weaving these legends together, but I haven't seen enough from one issue to convince that that potential will quickly or solidly be realized. I'm not currently reading "Fairest," therefore I can not make a comparison, but taken on its own merit, this book seems entertaining enough and worth a peek into the second issue. It's not completely dismissible, but it is also not quite memorable. Read Full Review
