Good story so far, but the art isn't doing it for me.

A quick read. Not bad. I don't know much about fairies, and I suppose the author is introducing readers to them, hoping for the same amount of interest that they've previously had in vampires, zombies, and wizards/witches.

The art was horrible, but the story was somewhat interesting. The main character's dress really annoyed me.

Not the most original story, or the best art, but intriguing nonetheless. Rue is not the type to sit still, she actively seeks out the answers to this mystery, and because of her faerie origins, has much room to learn about herself. this is just book one, so it deserves a chance to improve on what could end up a great modern day/ fairy tale mixture.

As graphic novels go, this one is well-paced with multiple stories, nicely dark/gothic art, and no repetitive overstatements (which bad graphic novels tend to fall into).

Very good and dark faerie story. A little bit of mystery and intrigue with beautiful art by Ted Naifeh

nice quick read. Like all good "faerie" stories, dark, spooky, and not at all straightforward.
