29746080I actually did not enjoy this one.  I figured it would be some fun background information on one of my favorite fairy tales when I was a child, and I was sadly disappointed.  I mean, we do get that back story, but I was saddened with the direction that they took the characters in, especially Peter Pan and Tinkerbell.  The only story I like was Tiger Lily‘s.

Basically they turned Peter Pan into a vicious, manipulative elf creature who plots and schemes and kills to get what he wants.  And he wants everything.

Tinkerbell’s story I enjoyed, at least until she hooked up with Pan and allowed herself to be corrupted by him and turned into something almost as dark and twisted as he was.

Tiger Lily’s was the best, although I didn’t like the artwork that they did for it.  But she has always been portrayed as this fierce and proud noble warrior, and thankfully they didn’t change that in this one.

There was an odd story that didn’t make sense about someone who came from Neverland, had children in our world, and was using dark magic to subvert them and help him take over the realm of Neverland and Myst, but it seemed almost thrown in there without much of a thought into how it ties into everything.

Something very weird comes next in Crossed, Wish You Were Here by Si Spurrier

13259795A contagion—or a curse—has decimated the planet. Marked with a bloody cross, the Infected are driven to indulge their sickest desires. In this world of psychos, savages, and sexual predators, the few remaining uninfected learn to keep moving: endlessly fleeing fate. This is the story of those who refused. Those who are too desperate, too angry, or too broken to hide from horror. It’s the story of a comic-book writer who witnessed the downfall of London, and now finds himself in the midst of a new community, a new start, on a barren island off the Scottish coast. Pretending, just for a while, that he’s safe, that he’s useful…that he has a future. It won’t last. There’s no sanctuary. No fighting back. No hope. There’s only the Crossed.
