Fairy Quest: Outcasts 1

The adventures of Red and Mister Woof have only just
begun. In Fablewood, all of the stories that have ever been told live
side-by-side. But it is an evil place, overseen by the awful Mister Grimm and
his cadre of Think Police. Red and Woof want to escape to a world where their
friendship isn’t prohibited, but nothing can prepare them for what lies ahead
in the Dark Forest.
As I believe I’ve said before, the idea that I’d miss out
on a great Kickstarter is just bizarre. 
Granted, if I were to try and fund every single one I wanted to, I’d
have to get another job just to do so.  One
such title that I regret to say I somehow let TWO of slip by is the Fairy Quest
series.  In spite of not being able to
help make it happen, I’m lucky enough to at least now read the first issue of
Fairy Quest: Outcasts.
Like many a great comic, the original Fairy Quest still sits
on my every growing “to grab” list.  As
such, I’m missing out on a good amount of introduction to this world and its
characters.  Even so I didn’t struggle
too much picking up on the story here with our unusual duo of Red and Woof (the
embodiment of Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf).  I’m not really sure why they’re on the run,
but there’s enough indication that it’s likely because of the apparent ruler Mister
Grimm and his cronies the Think Police.
Based on the gorgeous work I saw with Fiction Squad, I was
confident the art here would be just as spectacular.  Bigger comic fans would not be surprised
either knowing that Humberto Ramos was the one behind the visuals.  For those that may not be familiar, rest
assured that everything about the artwork is absolutely incredible.
The second I picked this book up I was unbelievably
excited to finally see it.  Having missed
my chance before to contribute, I’m glad I was able to at least be among those
who enjoyed it.  You should completely do
the same and make sure you don’t miss out on this book.  Even if you aren’t a fairy tale nut, this is still
an excellent title to read for both the story and art.
