CBR Review: Grim Furry Tales: Seeds

I recently reviewed Grim Furry Tales: Seeds for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Martin Brandt II is ambitious in Grim Furry Tales: Seeds, wanting to 'go back to the days of youth and rediscover imagination.' While he and his artists don’t necessarily succeed, there are glimpses of this ambition throughout the book. It’s a mixture of the stories of the Brothers Grimm, the sensibilities of Neil Gaiman at his most playful, and, honestly, a childlike wonder. Rather than one cohesive story, Seeds is a collection of 17 short vignettes, ranging from traditional comic stories to illustrated prose to journal entries. The art changes throughout with over a dozen artists, and it falls on Brandt’s writing to keep it all together."
