Rapunzel's Revenge

When I found out a few years ago that Shannon Hale was publishing a graphic novel I got very excited. Better yet, it was a retelling of Rapunzel! Yes, I waited with anticipation for Rapunzel's Revenge and then proceeded to not read it. Because sometimes I suck like that.

I finally rectified that wrong last month when I picked up Rapunzel's Revenge from the library. First I must give kudos to Nathan Hale (no relation) for his artwork. I loved it. It was perfect.

The story was pretty rocking too. Rapunzel, quite simply, kicked butt and took names. Of course she forms a partnership with a bad boy who isn't really bad, just a little bit bad. Jack was a great character. He just happens to have a few magic items himself. Excellent graphic novel and well deserving of its Cybils award.

I'm not going to make the same mistake with their next collaboration Calamity Jack. It came out in January and I've already added it to my library list.
