Ladycastle by Delilah S. Dawson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This was...okay. I'm afraid I don't have much to say about it, because it was strictly middle-of-the-road: adequate characters, generic worldbuilding, relatively unsophisticated art. I know it's supposed to be a reversal of fairy-tale tropes, with "King Mancastle" being all macho and stupid and getting his ass handed to him, and the left-behind women stepping up to run the place and dubbing it "Ladycastle," but it wasn't deep enough to qualify as an interesting twist, at least for me. The most interesting characters were actually the Harpies from Chapter Three, and the wheelchair-bound librarian Yanni. I think this was supposed to be a closed-loop limited series, but if the next chapter could focus on Yanni, that might be worth picking up.
