Gamayun Tales I by Alexander Utkin

This is a graphic novel of Russian fairy tales.  There are several and they are all great fun to read in this form.

Nobrow and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 10th.

With talking animals and water spirits, the humans are at a disadvantage.  Surprisingly the humans act in good faith when bargaining, but things backfire on them. 

There's the King of the birds, the Water Spirit and Tyna of the lake along with more tales.  There's the golden chest that turns into a palace.  That's pretty cool, but he opened it at the wrong time and now he can't close it back to a chest...

These tales draw you in and keep you reading.  They are different from other fairy tales I've read.  Having them in graphic form really adds to the story.  I enjoyed this one.
