The early word on this little book has been wonderful, and we couldn’t be happier.
Goodreads is a great website that lets you track, rate, review and discuss books that you’ve read and are planning to read (sort of like a virtual bookshelf and book club). If you’re eagerly awaiting Time Machine, for example, you can get on Goodreads and mark it as a book “to-read.” And once you’ve had the chance to read it, you can let the community know exactly what you thought.
Some advance reviews and scores are already up on the book’s Goodreads page and review sites around the ‘net, and they’re quite good!
Here are a few choice quotes…
“Once Upon a Time Machine is what all good retellings of beloved tales should be…hopefully there will be a volume two. This is an excellent book. If you love fairy tales, read it. If you have a daughter, get [it] for her. Get [it] for your libraries. It really is a work of art on all levels.” 5/5
“This faerie tale piece was actually just like an anthology, each author was given the premise of “write a faerie tale, but in the future” and each author produced wonderful worlds that were all particularly unique in some way, yet all seemed to somehow actually fit as if they were happening in the same world. Which is why I say this was a brilliant collaboration piece rather than an anthology. Each author gave a small piece of this different world, maybe on a planet or a space station or just somewhere in the cosmos.” 5/5
“And the portraits between the stories…LOVED them! The Three Little Pigs-ninja style…Red Riding Hood, The Little Mermaid, just to name a few…all of them awesome though!” 5/5
“If only something like this had been around when I was a child. Once Upon a Time Machine blends the classics of yesterday with comic book style to create something truly unique.” 4/5
“100% of the art was amazing. I loved it ALL.” 5/5
Remember, Once Upon a Time Machine will be officially released in comic book stores on October 10, 2012. You can also pre-order it (at an insane discount) from sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble, already. We hope that you do!
