The most badass archer in comics is back in a brand new ongoing series! From drug lords to corrupt bankers to the things that go bump in the night, no evils that plague the streets will be safe when Robyn Locksley sets up shop as a private detective in New York City.

    This is a very good introductory issue that balances action, exposition and character very nicely. The pace is so strong and key to its success I'd swear it was created with a metronome. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Aug 21, 2014

    There isn't particularly a lot of action in this issue, but I thought it was a great first issue. It allowed time for background knowledge to be shown, characters to develop, and a clear good vs. evil plot to take shape. I am excited to see how these first couple of issues roll out and the dynamic of character relationships. Marian has always been my favorite, so I am hoping she can take some lead on a couple of issues. Also, I hope we dive into Robyn and Marian's personal lives a little more. There is so much to do with these characters, so it should be a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Aug 18, 2014

    Finally the internal artwork is enjoyable and well above average. There are a few gradient backgrounds but New York has a genuine and physical feeling to it that makes up for that. At the same time the action scenes are excellently paneled, nothing super innovative to be sure but very good usage of compartmentalized sequential art to convey the events. You get a real sense of how powerful and deadly Robyn hood is and she never feels overly sexualized, though she does twist to some very weird angles and is put in a pretty tight cocktail dress at the start but I'm willing to let that slide. All and all this was a very good first issue and there's enough here to make Robyn Hood feel like more than just ANOTHER urban fantasy with hot chicks comic, I recommend it. Read Full Review

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Aug 22, 2014

    The book's conflict is dark enough to keep readers asking questions, but Shand reveals the villain much too quickly, stripping away what could have been some playful foreshadowing. Regardless, the cliffhanger sets up a crucial staging ground for an old fashion church brawl. The talent of artists Larry Watts and Slamet Mujiono are right on point for this series; the artwork is dynamic, full of expression, and sexy in a tasteful way. Robyn Hood #1 is a strong debut, so be sure to grab yourself a copy. Read Full Review
