Outlaw: The Legend of Robin Hood

by

Outlaw: The Legend of Robin Hood Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fast-paced graphic storytelling and stunning full-color illustrations combine in an action-packed retelling of the heroic Robin Hood story.

How did Robin of Loxley become Robin Hood? Why did he choose to fight injustice instead of robbing for his own gain? Expressive and gritty, this graphic novel whisks readers back to Crusades-era England, where the Sheriff of Nottingham rules with an iron fist, and in the haunted heart of Sherwood Forest, a defiant rogue — with the help of his men and the lovely Maid Marian — disguises himself to become an outlaw. Lively language and illustrations follow the legendary hero as he champions the poor and provokes a high-stakes vendetta in a gripping adventure sure to draw a new generation of readers.

Review:

"One of the most dynamic retellings of a classic tale in recent years." School Library Journal

Review:

"This retelling infuses the tale with potent mythological overtones and a distinctly modern sensibility." Booklist

Review:

"It's Hart's drawings and Fujita's coloring that elevate this 21st-century version head and shoulders above the rest.... sure to become the stuff of legend." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Expressive and gritty, this graphic novel sweeps readers back to Crusades-era England, where a defiant rogue named Robin Hood disguises himself to become an outlaw and stand up against the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham.
