The art style in the book differs from story to story, which works for many of the tales in here. Another wonder from Paradox Press! In "The Big Book of Grimm," the old stories of the Brothers Grimm are brought to life.
The art style in the book differs from story to story, which works for many of the tales in here. You have some of the more humorous tales ("Clever Hans") drawn with a more playful hand, while others ("All Soot") have been drawn to be a little more somber & serious. While I don't find anything truly objectionable in this book, some parents might not like some of the subject matter in one or two of the stories (violence, incest) & I recommend that they read over the book first so they can be aware of the stories & be able to discuss this with their children.
One of the great "Factoid Books" comic series. The original versions of Grimm's fairy tales are presented by some of the best artists in the field.
Jan 22, 2014 ☺Trish rated it it was amazing. A book of comic artist's interpretations of The Brother's Grimm collected folktales, which doesn't hold back on the pain, torture, murder, self mutilation and creepy love. The artwork varies artist to artist from marginally disturbing, to Sunday morning cartoony. Some of the appeal for me was lost in the more cartoon-themed interpretations. Though admittedly, I am slightly morbid. One of the great "Factoid Books" comic series. Lots of grim, gory fun.
