Colorized by Artur Fujita. Robin Hood's tale is presented in graphic novel format. The telling is darker than conventional versions with some violent action scenes and story elements. The artists mirror this in their comic-style illustrations in which shadow, rather than light, is used to define features. Colorized by Artur Fujita.
