Early Reader Review: Once Upon a Time Maching by Lee Nordling

Once Upon a Time MachineOnce Upon a Time Machine by Lee Nordling
Available: October 10th
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Background: Once Upon a Time Machine is a collection of children’s tales retold through the guise of the future. The collection includes classics like, the three little pigs, Goldilocks and the three bears, and Pinocchio.

Review: This was a masterfully done piece, the short stories were engaging and beautifully illustrated. I loved that they were all set in a futuristic world; it was a very interesting take on each of the tales. In between each there were even pieces of art depicting some of the tales not put into short stories here in the collection, for example The Gingerbread Man, The Little Mermaid, Red Riding Hood etc. They were even done up in this futuristic fashion. There were even some stories I was unfamiliar with, which were a pleasure to read. I was able to read the stories quite quickly and enjoyed them very much. They are for a more adult audience, not to share with children as there is some violence in some of the stories.
