This all happened a long time ago, in your grandmother's time, or in her grandfather's. A long time ago. Back then, we all lived on the edge of the great forest. Neil Gaiman and Lorenzo Mattotti both remember the horror and fascination with which they read the Grimm Brothers' "Hansel and Gretel." The writer and the artist now join forces for a brilliant reimagining of one of humanity's most enduring tales. Be brave, be bold, and keep your wits about you - Gaiman and Mattotti are welcoming you into the woods. Available in a Regular hardcover edition and a Deluxe hardcover edition with a larger print size, die-cut cover, and additional content.

    "Hansel & Gretel" is ultimately a big success, taking an odd project and making it work because of the sheer talent involved. Toon Books clearly agrees, offering up two different editions. The standard edition is a typical 7x10" hardcover, but there's also a deluxe hardcover clocking in at 9x12", a die-cut cover, and 4 bonus pages about the book. While it's more expensive, I'd recommend the deluxe edition; Mattotti's art looks good in the 7x10" dimensions, but it's breathtaking at the 9x12" expansion. This is a book where even after you've stopped reading Gaiman's text, you'll want to continue reliving Mattotti's illustrations every year -- especially right around Halloween. This is a dark corner of the world that's worth visiting. Read Full Review
