Zenescope Entertainment has recently announced the newest addition to their popular Grimm Fairy Tales comic series: Robyn Hood. Set to debut in September, Robyn Hood will be a five issue spin off title that will provide (in the inimitable Zenescope style) a refreshing take on the classic character Robin Hood. Sounds awesome right?
Zenescope’s version of Robyn Hood puts an updated and reinvigorating twist on a classic tale by re-inventing the main character as a female heroine. The story begins in the city of Bree within the Grimm Fairy Tales realm of Myst. There, a tyrant rules with an iron fist and the city’s people are desperate for a savior. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Robyn is “the new kid” at an upper class high school and she quickly learns just how out of place she feels in this world. But when Robyn is summoned to the realm of Myst, she will learn that an entirely new life awaits her and the fate of a mythical city rests solely in her hands if she chooses to accept it.
All-in-all, this is one series that I am definitely looking forward to. There really haven’t been many truly unique versions of Robin Hood to speak of; and not only has this one “wowed’ me, but it certainly has the potential to be a huge hit. Besides, Zenescope doesn’t disappoint when it comes to adding a dark and interesting twist to the classic fairy tale characters, and Robyn Hood should be no different. Again, look for this series to make its debut in September and will also be available for pre-order in July.
