    I'm glad I gave this a try because it gave me a Hood tale I've not encountered before. The story is a solidly original spin on classic characters and the visuals of the book are well done. At only $2.99 with 24 pages of uninterrupted art, this is one of the best bargains around for comic reading. If all of Zenescope's books are this good, I'm going to be checking out more of them.

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain May 17, 2014

    Reading this issue, and knowing that there are two more issues waiting to be read after this, I'm really excited to read more about Robyn since I enjoyed her portrayal here. The gender-bending of the classic hero Robin Hood seems to be handled nicely in the context of this particular setting, and it worked for me without a doubt. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Mar 19, 2014

    Grimm Fairy Tales presents Robyn Hood: Legend #1 is a promising start. There's enough set up found with the confines of these pages to give fans a striking reason to come back for more. And bearing that in mind this easily comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Robyn now is faced with a choice of working her another evil man, Gisbourne. This dude is bad, but after some long explaining, it is really Robyn's only hope in order to save her land. I have a feeling that Nottingham will become her land. I am not saying Robyn is the princess type, but that she will some day stay in Nottingham in order to protect it forever. Robyn Hood:Legend offers a good calm before the storm, so check it out if you are becoming a fan. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall Mar 24, 2014

    This is "Volume 3 of the Robyn Hood Trilogy" and Pat Shand's story made me feel exactly like I was walking into a story 2/3rds of the way through as opposed to reading a #1 issue. I'm fairly familiar with the Robin Hood mythology, so I recognized a lot of the names being tossed around. They've gender-swapped Robyn, but we have Will Scarlet, the Sheriff of Nottingham, Guy of Gisbourne, Marian, and others. They've got magical & current day twists applied to them and there is a LOT of backstory from (I assume) the 1st two series mentioned and alluded to. The story wasn't bad, but it left so much 'between the lines' that I really didn't find myself being drawn into it either. Will I be back for #2? No. That said, I liked what I read enough that I'll keep my eyes out for the 1st series from 2012 (if I can find it at a decent price) and try to pick up on the story from the beginning.
