Robyn Hood: I Love NY #1

Robyn Hood shakes things up in this tale where it takes the classic and gives it a twist. With a female lead that takes charge in the city, protecting the weak, it creates an exciting new comic. Will things work out for this exciting hero or will it end deadly?

Joe Brusha takes a classic character and twists it up. The main character navigates through the city, protecting people in peril and busting up people dealing drugs. As a fan of the classic Robin Hood and Green Arrow, it feels the character is a mixture of the both of them. The issue is laid out very well, with exciting dialogue and an ending that left me hanging and wanting a bit more.

David Riveiro’s art is pleasing to the eyes so far...

Robyn Hood 11

Robyn and Marian are going to Comic Con, no really, it’s true.  Issue number 11 of the series kicks off with Robyn and Marian having to take on a bevy of odd ball cases to keep their heads above water following a lawsuit, and of course the Cabal is still on their radar.

This issue starts with the duo interviewing a client who wants them to find a WARHAMMER which has cursed his family with among other things syphilis and boiling saliva.  The only problem is that the man has sold the cursed hammer on E-bay.  That makes sense.  First stop is the buyer, who has put it up for bid at the New York ComiCon.  But wait!  There is also a pack of werewolves looking to retrieve their mystic talisman.  Fortunately for them, it’s a comic convention, so they will blend in...

Robyn and Marian were hired by the wealthy Ms. Rubino to
lift a magical hold on her bank account, but when Marian’s spell goes awry, the
account is purged. Rubino threatens legal action, but it’s the least of their
problems, as Marian is pursued by an insane Avella, and Robyn makes a dodgy
deal with the Rotter, a criminal looking to lift a powerful curse. Meanwhile,
the mysterious Cabal prepares for a cataclysmic event known as “the
Shift.”

Robyn and Marian are in the thick of it now.  With Avella on the rampage and the Cabal

Robyn Hood 6

Ever since leaving Myst, Marian’s magic hasn’t been the
same. As Robyn examines her own dangerous temper, Marian seeks help from a
mysterious source. All the while, the enigmatic Cabal observes from the
shadows.

This issue is a more Marian focused one.  Robyn is dealing with some more personal
problems after her team-up with Britney last issue.  However, Marian has some recently discovered
troubles of her own.  So now, Marian
seeks out guidance from a third party, too embarrassed to reveal her situation
to Robyn.  What she learns though makes
her question how much her magic is really worth to her.  Meanwhile, Robyn takes Britney’s advice and
goes to counseling for all of the trauma she’s endured in her life.  Unfortunately, trouble just seems to follow
Robyn wherever she goes...

Robyn Hood 2

Robyn and Marian, now operating a small private investigation business out of their apartment, help people with non-traditional problems. That led them to Sam, the head of a roller derby team of young women who practice witchcraft. After experimenting with a dangerous mystical drug, the women were targeted by a demonic entity known as the Priest, who captures Sam in order to lure Robyn and Marian to him.

The second issue of the new on-going series, Robyn Hood delves into the modern world to deliver street-level justice with a mystical twist.  With her new partner Marian, Robyn sets out to curb the efforts of a man known as The Priest.  However, now that Robyn has him cornered, she may have bitten off more than she can chew...
