A new Robyn Hood series – Robyn Hood: Vigilante #1 starts the new mini series from Zenescope Entertainment. Here are my thoughts on it!
After recent events Robyn has found herself on the other side of the law. Hunted and unwelcome both on the streets of the city she calls home, and by the family of outlaws she made in the Underground. Robyn is dealing with her new status quo the only way she knows how, with a fistful of questions and bow full of arrows. Aimed at getting revenge on those who have turned her life upside down, she must seek out the answers to return things to the way they were or the closest thing to it by any means necessary.Writer: Ben Meares

Coming straight out of the last Robyn Hood mini series, we get a new status quo for Robyn. She’s deemed a criminal (or vigilante) by the police. Even with the support of the recently injured Chief of police, she’s still on the run. The only thing she can do it clear her name!
This issue sets things up nicely and also runs down what has gone before really well!
The comment of the security footage of the ‘attack’ was well done – those things are always very convenient! I also like the link between her Robyn’s recent adventures (and her current problems) there are some new characters introduced – with comments about his nickname too! The action in this issue was well paced, with archery and bursting through windows. Robyn has also been learning some new tricks too. The ending sets up the rest of the arc well, with a new(ish) attack on Robyn and we may get to see who is behind all this and more.
This looks to be another fast paced Robyn mini-series!
