Bookshelf Review: Colleen Doran Brings Neil Gaiman’s Troll Bridge to Glorious Life!

Just as Snow, Glass, Apples is far afield of Disney’s happily sanitized Snow White (or even the Grimm brothers’ original, for that matter), Troll Bridge is not your kindergartner’s Three Billy Goats Gruff. The tale, told in retrospect from the now-adult Jack, is beautiful prose: eloquent, evocative and yet somehow minimal at once. And, true to Gaiman form, fondly nostalgic of a youth lived in the wilds of fair(ish) Britain in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. (13/13)

Bookshelf Reviews: The Skullkickers Kick Some Skulls, and Take Some Opas!!!

Described by Zub as his “love letter to Conan the Barbarian and Dungeons & Dragons, and swords and sorcery in general,” Skullkickers tracks the antics of the two aforementioned sellswords as they bash and bungle their way through the multiverse, gathering up a host of interesting friends and foes along the way. They fight fiendish necromancers, sail the seven seas, wrestle gorillas with horns, and confront a would-be world-dominating Cthulhu-like entity, with identity issues. (17/13)

From the Pullbox Bookshelf: Thieves’ World Graphics Offers Sanctuary

Down from the Bookshelf for review this week is the Thieves’ World Graphic series, the comic adaptation of the Thieves’ World anthology collection by Robert Lynn Asprin, Lynn Abbey and a host of others. Abbey restructured a number of Thieves’ World tales (and wrote a few new ones) for the graphic novel format, and the books were drawn by none other than young and rising (at the time) artist Tim Sale.
