Calamity Jack

Calamity Jack is the sequel to Rapunzel's Revenge that I posted about yesterday. Written by  Dean and Shannon Hale and illustrated by Nathan Hale it is a quite good re-imagining of Jack and the Beanstalk. Quite a bit more steampunk influence in this graphic novel than there was in the previous, but that's ok as I like steampunk. :-)  The Wild West/Fairy Tale/Steampunk universe they've created seems very natural, blends together quite well and really adds to the story. The characters also grow and evolve and aren't just paper-thin unchanging caricatures. Very good stuff. Highly recommended!
