About the Book:
People are disappearing all over Manhattan. The only thing the disappearances have in common is there’s nothing in common. Race does not matter. Neither does gender. Victims range in age as well. Robyn Hood goes into the sewers of New York City to investigate. During her investigation she comes to realize that Red Agent (Britney Waters) is investigating the disappearances as well. What they discover stinks more than anything else they’ll find in the sewers.
Robyn Hood is one of my favorite characters in Zenescope’s Grimm Universe. She is calculating, methodical, and she’s capable of holding her own in a fight. In other words, she’s Batman less the cash and tech.
Robyn Hood: The Children of Dr. Moreau is a bit predictable in places. It’s still a fun story. Watching Robyn Hood work her magic alongside Red Agent was a sight to behold.
I liked how Red Agent was portrayed on the cover. Tao shows us she can simultaneously look powerful and psychotic. I also enjoyed the artwork on the interior pages. Canales does a magnificent job with the action sequences.
As a geek on a budget I would say that Robyn Hood: The Children of Dr. Moreau is well worth the price of admission. We get great artwork, plenty of action, and a chance to learn more about the Grimm Universe that Zenescope has given us.
