    Comic Bastards - Matt Eurice Mar 7, 2013

    If you aren't reading this one, start. There isn't much else I can say, other than the series is basically a combination of George Orwell's 1984 and classic fairytales. The story is a labor of love for both the writer and the artist and it really deserves to be read. I really hope there's enough interest in the story for them to do more than a few issues and it was a great pickup by Boom in my opinion. I'm personally dying to read more, and I'm very interested in seeing Jenkins re-imagine some other classic fairy tales. Read Full Review

    Midnight Logic - Atlee Greene Mar 12, 2013

    Humberto Ramos' magical artwork is the perfect fit for this fabled adventure and it shines in every panel of the book. The opening page shows the real world implications when one deviates from the script, and despite this you still find yourself rooting for Red and Wolf to succeed, without a second thought, even though one of the most popular stories of all time will be erased from existence as a result.

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Mar 8, 2013

    If you missed out on the first issue, do yourself a favor and go find it, and while you're there get issue 2 as well. Just be prepared, it ends with a To Be Continued. . . and we don't have any idea when that'll happen, the sooner the better though! Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Mar 6, 2013

    The moral of Fairy Quest #2's story is that friends may come in unlikely shapes and sizes and enemies might lurk behind the prettiest of faces. Jenkins drives home the fact that life is unfair, humans are cruel and capricious beings, and sometimes bad things happen to good people. Fairy Quest does what good fairy tales are supposed to do: it conveys hard truths about the world in a fantastical setting that emphasizes the simplicity of their message. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Danielle Luaulu Mar 13, 2013

    This title is a really fun read and I'm very happy that it's going to have a next issue instead of the allotted two. I'm serious about feeling okay to read this series to my younger sisters, giving us something to bond over that keeps both myself and them entertained without insulting one or the other's intelligence. The art keeps things exciting and I look forward to seeing what they come up with next for this series. Overall, this title earns four stars out of five. Read Full Review
