About this deal

The tale of the young princess, Snow White, and her evil stepmother, the Wicked Queen, is widely known—the Queen was jealous of the girl''s beauty, and this jealousy culminated in the Queen''s attempt on the sweet, naive girl''s life.

Disney's New York Times best-selling Villains series comes to life in this graphic novel adaptation of the book that started it all in this tragic tale of love and loss, the untold story of Snow White's Wicked Queen. I did like the relationship between the King, Queen, and Snow at the beginning, I just felt like without having more of the inner thoughts of the Queen, the change was too abrupt. Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch and The Odd Sisters: A Villains Book to be released in Summer 2019. This is meant to be a humanizing back story for the Wicked Queen from Disney's Snow White, apparently in continuity with the film.

The royal family’s lives are richly described, with the inclusion of a new character: trusted lady-in-waiting Verona. Maybe the novel this is based off of does a better job of explaining the huge shift in the Queen's behavior, from saccharinely devoted stepmother to obsessed with her own beauty to the point of murder. I also felt like the story was more fast-paced in the graphic novel, and if I had read this version first, I probably would have been confused. A great examination of how grief, mental health, and abuse can change who we are (note, I don't think those things absolve us for poor behavior).

Again, I like that this book focuses more on the villain in Snow White but I wish there was a bit more then just the Queen having a depressing life, dying and then Snow White (of course) getting married by a man. Disney Villains Fairest of All recounts a version of the story that many over the ages have viewed as plausible. I'm not sure the premise would have worked for me in the longer source material, but was it was certainly compelling enough to sustain this relatively short graphic novel. Disney''s New York Times best-selling Villains series comes to life in this graphic novel adaptation of the book that started it all in this tragic tale of love and loss, the untold story of Snow White''s Wicked Queen. The evil stepmother in this retelling of “Snow White” starts life as a commoner who marries the king and becomes a loving mother to his little girl.

I found the backstory of the Queen to be interesting but I found it seemed to follow the same story as the original story. Part of it was from the art style, I didn't really enjoy it and it often made the speech bubbles seem to be in the wrong spot. She's, without a doubt, the most pathetic fairy tale character: absolutely no spine or any redeeming qualities.

Disney’s New York Times best-selling Villains series comes to life in this graphic novel adaptation of the book that started it all in this tragic tale of love and loss, the untold story of Snow White’s Wicked Queen. This take on the origins of the Wicked Stepmother in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is an interesting one. Because of this, I felt that the characters reacted in extremes at times, possibly heightened by the three color panels. The queen’s and Snow White’s likenesses to Disney characters are evident; most characters read White.
