Today on the Kirkus Reviews Blog, I talk about Once Upon A Time Machine – a collection of comics based on fairy tales and other classic stories, all with a unique twist.

From the post:

This massive book caught my eye for a couple of reasons. First, I know Dark Horse puts out great books.  Second the cover was a fascinating mix of fairy tale creatures and science fiction elements like rocket ships and wormholes.  Who wouldn’t want to pick that up and thumb through?  It’s essentially an attempt to reimagine classic fairy tales (a trend these days) in a science fiction setting.  Editors Andrew Carl and Chris Stevens, sought out a plethora of indie and up and coming writers and artists like Farel Dalrymple (Pop Gun War), Ryan Ottley (Invincible), Khoi Pham (Daredevil), and Brandon Graham (King City) to put a wholly new and different spin on these familiar stories.  And I have to admit, they have done a damned fine job of it.
