Calamity Jack

Calamity Jack - Dean Hale;Shannon Hale In a follow-up to her first graphic novel, Rapunzel's Revenge, Shannon Hale, author of several modern fairy tales, tells us the story of Rapunzel's plucky sidekick Jack and continues their adventures when they return home to confront his past.

This was a quick an entertaining read, though I have to admit I didn't enjoy it as well as Rapunzel's story. There was nothing particularly wrong with it, it just didn't capture my imagination in the same way.

The illustrations, drawn by husband Dean Hale, were just as well done as those in their previous collaboration and went a long way towards telling the story, as should be expected from a graphic novel.
