Fairy Tale Knights #1

The world we know only in fairy tales may not be as fictional as we thought.  This world is now in peril, as a mysterious force threatens to destroy all they know.  A warrior is called to find out why inhabitants there are dying, and who is behind it all.

The Good
The prelude really caught my interest, and the first full issue did not disappoint either.  The initial story within Fairy Tale Knights 1 starts off strong, and has a lot of potential for those that follow. I’m still enjoying the style of art that was introduced in the teaser and continue to think it works quite well.

The Bad

Steampunk Known as TICK: Celebrated in Top 2012: Ten UK Small Press Comics You Need to Own

Canterbury, GB
“Bagley presents a layered and captivating tale here, brought to visual life with an exquisite eye for detail and a remarkably assured and confident storytelling style. If you don’t instantly fall in love with Tick after a first reading then, quite frankly, you have no soul…” Small Pressganged soundbite

Rebecca Bagley’s steampunk fable Tick is a 36-page colour small press comic. Its starting point centers on a new homeowner’s discovery of a curious, kettle-headed, mechanical creature hidden away in the house she has just purchased. Obviously sentient, but forlornly uncommunicative, it soon becomes obvious that this hi-tech-yet-retro homunculus’ original function has been lost to the mists of time.

TICK now is heralded as being one of 10 of the “best” small press ...
