-Often thought of as children's tales, the original stories from the Brothers Grimm are nothing of the sort. Dark, vindictive, and full of hard-to-swallow life lessons, this collection of Grimm's Fairy Tales re-presents these lasting works with contemporary illustrations by Eisner Award-nominated artist Kevin Colden.
