No Rest For the Wicked. Ho. Lee. SHIT. I can't believe I never read this before, especially since I'm a fable/mythology junkie. It's Andersen and Grimm and all sorts of other old stories, the OLD versions, mashed together and tangled out into their own storyline, and gone ten times as dark as the originals. And that's SAYING something.

I mean, they managed to combine Red Riding Hood and the Redcaps. I have such <3 for this character that there are no words. It brings up the very real idea that being eaten alive by a wolf (albeit being rescued later) might have some lasting repercussions on the psyche down the road. Especially when dealing with other famous characters who have a penchant for also eating children.
