Review - Robyn Hood: Dagon
From Zenescope Entertainment
It’s a new year and a new adventure in Robyn Hood: Dagon from Zenescope Entertainment.
Just when it looks like Robyn might finally get some down time, new threats emerge against the citizens of New York City. Bloodthirsty monsters are roaming the streets and it seems that no one is safe…not even Robyn herself.

I wondered if it would be another one-shot adventure for Robyn - sort of the villain-of-the-week type thing. Instead, I got something built in the larger Grimm Universe, mostly in Grimm Fairy Tales. With the ‘old gods returning, this proved to be a very interesting read. Enemies, old and new, make an appearance, and there are many references to past battles. These add in some allies - again, these are old and new and bring a new dimension to Robyn and the fight she may have ahead of her.
As far as the villain is concerned, it seems a little disjointed, but I think that is because we are used to a larger brawl for Robyn. This is getting a larger story made and adding in some new dimensions.
There is a lot of mystery here. What is the end game of some of those involved - both on our side and the side of the old gods? There are mysterious artefacts, and no end of creatures to face. This at least gives us some good fight scenes with Robyn’s new help showing his worth.
The art is well done - combining the magical elements with the darker sides of the city. I liked the kinetic motion shown in the fight scenes too.
This is worth checking out as it builds into the larger Grimm Universe storyline going on now, with some good points made. I’m sure this issue will be referred to at some point!
