I’ve been so excited about the release of the first issue of the now ongoing ROBYN HOOD that I haven’t spoken much about the beginning of my run on GRIMM FAIRY TALES.
#101, the start to said run, hit shelves two days ago. In it, we’re introducing basically an entirely new cast. The star since the beginning of the series, Sela Mathers, is still around but in a different role. She, her mentor Shang, and her former nemesis Belinda have opened Arcane Acre, a training ground for the Realm Knights of the future. There, they’re teaching the highborns and falsebloods (beings from one of the realms of power — Neverland, Oz, Myst, and Wonderland — living on Earth) what they’ll need to know to protect Earth and the realms.
The new cast is made up of SKYLAR MATHERS (Sela’s estranged daughter), VIOLET LIDDLE (the Mad Hatter and daughter of Calie Liddle, who I’m borrowing from the Wonderland series), and three brand new characters: the powerful WULF, the mysterious ALI, and HAILEY, a water nymph from Neverland.
I am enjoying writing this book more than I was prepared for, so I hope you’ll give this new YA spin on GFT a try! And c’mon, how good is that art by Andrea Meloni!
