Our thanks to Jason Franks for his review of issue 2 of Róisín Dubh at Tastes Like Comics.
Here’s an amuse-bouche:
Róisín Dubh is something rare: a comic based on myth and legend that remains true to the period in which it is set. It’s refreshing to see a heroine who is both tough and vulnerable, presented without the standard hyper-sexualization we have come to expect from today’s comics and films. McHugh and Byrne have produced a terrific book that doesn’t pander, doesn’t sugarcoat, and retains its capacity to surprise. Seek it out; it’s well worth your time.
