Review: The Beast's Tale

32841045 The Beast's Tale by Mallory Reaves
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received a review copy from NetGalley, this in no way affects my review.
Blurb: A tale as old as time ... told in timeless manga style
Disney's much-anticipated live-action adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" hits theaters in March 2017, and it stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. This original two-part manga series is based upon the upcoming movie... but you've never seen this classic love story told quite this way before.
The "Beauty" manga delves into Belle's deepest thoughts as she's taken prisoner by the Beast in his majestic castle. Where the "Beast" manga explores Beast's deepest thoughts as he captures Belle in his castle and finds himself falling in love with her feisty attitude and adventurous spirit.

I enjoyed this one a lot more than Belle's version. (And I really don't know why...) The are was good in places, but often appeared only half finished. The art was beautiful on one page, then lacking on the next. Disappointing since one of my favorite parts of Manga is the art! The story was good, but I felt at the beginning he looked much too old, as he was around 11 years old when he was cursed...but manga's like that XD Over all I did enjoy this one, and though while not my favorite version, it did remind me once again why this is my favorite princess story.
