The Valor anthology collects retellings of folk and fairytales from across the world alongside a few new contributions to the genre from some of the top webcartoonists and storytellers of the day, including the editors, Nicole Chartrand, Cory & Ran Brown, Justin Lanjil, Laura Neubert, Little Foolery, Sara Goetter, Kadi Fedoruk, Ash Barnes, and others. Each tale is written to celebrate and encourage heroism in women. Whether about young Finette and Vasilisa heading off to seek their own fortunes, a knight adopting the dragon she was sent to defeat, a crane wife claiming her final boon, or the little mermaid finding she's not the only one with a secret, the stories are populated with strong, witty, and endearing characters. Most of the stories are presented in graphic novel format, with several illustrated prose tales interspersed. As with any compendium, the style and quality varies from story to story, but Valor presents a respectable number of gems and is definitely worth reading cover to cover. ( )
