Reviews

The true strength of Castle Waiting is Medley s gorgeous art. The characters are perfect, distinctive and expressive, and the storytelling so strong you don t even notice it. [ ] When I close the cover, it s always a melancholy action, because I want more time with these people, more adventures, more humor and good-heartedness. --Johanna Draper Carlson "Best of 2010 " A wryly funny fairy tale narrative that's both women-centered and women-powered. There's a clear salute to the power of sisterhood in Castle Waiting's stories of battered and exploited women banding together with kindly men to make a new world... The Castle Waiting castle draws people looking for a safe place to rest. The Castle Waiting book draws readers looking for much the same. Club rating: A-. Starred Review. Medley's art is both exquisitely detailed and fantastically lighthearted. Though appropriate for all ages, this one-of-a-kind graphic novel is likely to appeal most to smart women in their 20s and older and to any man who believes in feminism and knows how to laugh.

Hard-edged lines with simple forms create black-and-white artwork that melds nicely with the fairy-tale feel of the stories. This volume is accessible for younger readers but filled with enough layers and depth to satisfy those looking for a bit more sophistication. Castle Waiting creates a vibrant fantasy world not unlike The Lord of the Rings Middle-earth but with a focus on the lives of women. Gorgeously illustrated in black and white, fun to read and look at, Castle Waiting will enthrall fantasy readers of both genders.
