    Is this title (Damsels) the Dynamite version of Zenescope's Fairy Tales?

    No, BOTH stole^W were artistically inspirated by Fables.

    tony ingram: "baffled but intrigued (in a good way)" is definitley what we were going for. Hope you dig #2!

    helwen & shokoshu: Yes, Fables and the Zenescope books are already out there doing their own take on the Fairy Tale world but Damsels is offering something a little bit different. If you enjoy those books then Damsels should appeal as an alternate take on those ideas (like reading any new superhero title along side the other superhero titles you enjoy). If those books didn't hit the right spot for you in the past, then maybe Damsels will. Either way there's more to Damsels than just a rip off - comparisons are inevitable but scratch the surface and you'll find something different underneath. I hope you'll check the book out and make your minds up then.

    Damsels #2 goes on sale tomorrow and there's a 5 page preview up now at http://www.dynamite.net/htmlfiles/vi...#previewImages Hope you'll check it out and pick up the book.

    Thumbs up

    I bought Damsels #1 and thought it was AWESOME and haven't bought #2 yet since I wait to buy in bulk from (Midtowncomics.com) twice monthly.

    Never said it was a rip-off, it's just that I read Vampirella and essentially nothing else.
    Meh, it would be interesting to know whether Jasper Fforde and his Nursery crime novels
    even predate Fables. Nothing is new under the sun. Our German Minister for Education (!!) gets
    impeached for copypasting her Ph.D. thesis. We live in the copypaste age. I should write
    a bestseller on that theme. Or better wait for someone else writing it and copypaste it.

    Yeah, the shared Fairy Tale / Fantasy world is, of course, a concept that's been played with by many writers. Nursery Crimes started in 2005, I think. Tom Holt's Snow White and the Seven Samurai was 1999 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_Wh..._Seven_Samurai), and Pratchett's been at it since the early 1980s.

    Oddly enough John, I read the first issue yesterday (yes, I know I'm late, but I only get into town to the comic shop once a month these days). I think at the moment 'baffled but intrigued' would be my verdict, but I mean that in a good way and I'll certainly be back for #2.
