This book you are holding in your hands is a piece of magic. They travelled around Germany, asking people to tell them their town or family’s favourite fairy tale. It is lots of little pieces of magic, in fact, collected by the brothers Grimm nearly two hundred years ago. These were the stories grannies had been telling grandchildren, sisters had told their brothers, and mums and dads had been telling their kids for hundreds of years. Strange stories, funny stories, animal stories, love stories, lost-in-the-forest stories, oh-my-God-I’p stories.

Grimm Fairy Tales is Back! The world of humans has forever changed and the Grimm Universe has been shaken to its core. New Series Launch! Grimm Fairy Tales is Back! The world of humans has forever changed and the Grimm Universe has been shaken to its core. It started with the Age of Darkness and now with the death of Sela Mathers, earth's long time guardian, the Realms of Power have fallen into chaos.

Comments to eBook Grimm Fairy Tales: Neverland Hardcover (Grimm Fairy Tales Presents)
Yla
The item is well made and I have found no issues with the book itself.

The content leaves, for me, a lot to be desired. It is probable that desire that made me want so much out of this story but I was left largely disappointed.

If you’re new or just beginning in comics/graphic novels medium, this is not a good place to start. If, on the other hand, you’re fairly seasoned and looking for something different in comics you’ll want to steer clear of Neverland also. While Zenescope’s Wonderland series is an exceptional applause for taking a different spin on a well known tale, here, Neverland falls into a trap of horrible clichés, unlikable characters, and not very likable overall.

It feels like it could have done better in a number of respects.
1. The therapist that shouldn’t have been. It just screamed contrived as he was the third wheel, or convenient character to connect Nathan Cross (Hook) and Wendy. He was the most cliché display of characterization and has no purpose or importance of being around in the whole story.
2. All eyes of Pan, who was excellent. Evil and powerful and he knew he had the goods. I felt the story would of have a lot more going for it if it focused on him as he was far interesting.
3. The 192 pages is the whole story, it feels rushed and the pacing will have you feel like you’re starting and stopping again. As in, I felt I was being gagged and dragged away from one scene as it was getting interesting to see something else.

Summary
Why to buy
Get it in a hardcover so maybe it can help prop up other books.

Why not to buy:
If the Wonderland series is the screaming, hurling roller coaster ride then Neverland is the ring toss. Cliché, predictable.

I read this at work, and it's very good! A really dark version of "Peter Pan" where Pan is the bad guy who kidnaps children and gains evil powers from killing these kids, and Hook is actually a misunderstood good guy (but by a different name) who was once kidnapped by Pan 20 years ago, who ends up going back to Neverland. I love the graphic art, and (Tinker)Belle is still my favorite character in the story.

If you like this line of graphic novels, you will thoroughly enjoy this story. The art is
fantastic. Bought this for my son,and preread it in one sitting.

I am a huge fan of Peter Pan/Neverland. I have two copies of "Peter Pan" in book form, three DVDs (not including Hook and Finding Neverland), and even the only authorized sequel. So I saw this and had to read it.

Alert - over!sexy girls (not my favorite thing, and an obvious sign that the artists are guys) and pretty creepy themes. But that doesn't change the fact that this is an AMAZING reworking of the boy who will never grow up. Yes, it's dark. Yes, it's not the happy-go-lucky story you expect when you think of Neverland. But the depths of the story really make you think back to the old stories you read.

I am a fan of the Grimm Fairy Tales graphic novels. I don't like the over!sexy girls featured as I think they're bad images for teen girls this day and age. And the sexist images are what I hate about it. But I bought it for the story, and I wasn't disappointed.

To all Neverland fans - I dare you to read this and not be impressed. Get sucked in, and then immediately after (if you're prone to nightmares) go watch the Disney movie. :)

I can not get enough of the Grimm Fairy Tales. Great visuals, storylines, and character development. Every twist in every graphic novel has me rivetted...I have purchased them all, so far, and will continue to do so as long as they maintain their edge

I knew this volume existed before I even considered reading it. I know that Zenescope releases a lot of these, and I had seen some of the artwork, as many of you may have as well – which mostly consists of a lot of overly sexy ladies in very little clothing. Be that as it may, I can handle a certain amount of that sort of thing, so I decided, despite the possible racy or erotic nature of this volume, I couldn’t exclude it from my list. Okay so I had prepared myself to see, every few pages, an image of some exaggerated female with her ass in my face. *ahem* I figured I’d snicker and move on, and then I’d review based on how laughable it was.

Guess what… Despite the images that are used in conjunction to advertise this comic series and serve as cover art…there was no nudity and no sex involved in the storyline at all! There are a few cover images from the comic shown in the book, and those have the half-naked women on them, but as far as this only being a T&A fest, it’s just not so, imo.

This story sort of teeters between the modern day real world and Neverland – sort of in the vein of Fables and Once Upon A Time. The main characters are Nathan Cross (also called Hook) and Wendy. Nathan is a down-on-his-luck man with a prosthetic hand, who suffers from psychological issues and regularly sees a therapist. Wendy is a grown woman with two nephews living with her, named John and Michael. Circumstances lead them to cross paths, and their adventures in a nightmarish Neverland ensue.

Peter Pan is a grown man (once a boy, who found Neverland and decided to stay). He took control of it, and Neverland has gradually become his world of nightmares. *ahem* He maintains his immortality by feeding on the souls of children that he snatches from the real world, but he doesn’t do it in order to stay youthful, only to stay alive (and for meanness).

Cross has a recurring dream where he’s on an island running for his life, a monstrous reptile chasing him. He can’t seem to shake it throughout his adult life. Turns out Nathan was the only one to survive Neverland – ever – but not without losing his hand to the crocodile beast that was chasing him. And that isn’t all he lost. His brother, Timmy, was not so lucky, and those things haunt him. Wendy, on the other hand, is only there by circumstance when her nephews are abducted by Pan, and he afterward fixates on her (for some reason) and decides he wants to seize her later and make her his queen (lame).

So, the basis of the plot has Cross facing his past as he helps Wendy try to rescue her nephews.
Other characters are featured, such as Tinker Bell and Tiger Lily, but honestly, they don’t do a lot. The crocodile also serves as a horrific foe. There are natives, mermaids, and some zombie-type Lost Boys. There are some guys on a ship…not sure if they were supposed to be pirates…

The artwork was alright, full color and certainly nice as far as that goes. I’m kinda picky and pretty much expect everything to be amazing… which is certainly not always the case in graphic novels, but if the art is prettier, I can accept a weaker storyline. This one didn’t quite do it for me. It’s not something I want to open up and look at, even without reading, just to see how pretty it is.

Three stars… maybe.

The story was actually pretty poor, I felt. I was interested in the concept, but it let me down. The motives of some of the characters were often absent or fell flat, and it simply could have been more exciting. The plot was extremely simple (though I think there is another spin-off or continuation of this series, which I will probably not delve into because this one didn’t impress me enough.) It didn’t blow my mind, but it was certainly along horror lines, and I appreciated the effort.
