    I thought this was a pretty cool idea. What if Robin Hood's Merry Men were actually truly merry (or gay) men? Unfortunately, this swings back and forth between poor political intrigue and terrible slash fiction with a bunch of adult gay men acting all catty and jealous as if this was a...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley I was sooo excited for this but unfortunately the execution fell kind of flat. I love the idea of a queer Robin Hood and liked how they blended actual historical elements to the story, but this was an incredibly dense read and I str...

    Thank You Netgalley for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest review As interesting as I thought an unabashfully queer Robin Hood telling would be, the execution is severely lacking to the point where I just didn't find myself enjoying the novel. The art style is...

    This was a really interesting take on the Robin Hood myth, with a cast of gay and bisexual men, as well as a trans woman. I liked the different reactions from the side characters, the dynamics within the Merry Men, and the portrayal of the persecution they had to escape. I also appreci...

    This is not the version of Robin Hood you are used to. And the author makes it very clear in the opening page, what to expect as you read along. This is the world of Robin Hood and that point in England, during and after the crusades, but with a gay twist. All the Merry Men are ...

    Much like Garth Marenghi, Robert Rodi knows writers who use subtext ? and they're all cowards. Taking the gay reading of the Robin Hood myth and running with it is not a bad idea: 'merry' as a synonym for 'gay' works, and it does fit with the whole idea of Robin as a companion of Ric...

    Thanks to Netgalley for this great read. I had read some single issues from this series but now I could read the first trade from the 'free to read' section. Merry Men is a queer retelling of Robin Hood. It seems that everyone is Robin's ex! In his merry men band are: Alan and Arthu...

    I loved everything about Robin Hood in my young years, and I was curious to WATCH a lgbt re-telling of the story. OF COURSE I WAS! I am not obsessed with graphic novels. But from time to time I am in the mood for something like this. It was Okay, but it didn't WOW me. ***ARC ...

    I?ve always loved Robin Hood. There?s a reason I was pretty desperate to read Sherwood when I first learned that it was going to be published. There?s simply something so amazing about his story that leaves me with an unshakable feeling of adoration. So, naturally, the very mom...

    I'm always a sucker for Robin Hood retellings, and this was no exception. I love how Robin's place as being between the margins of society is expanded to include a fascinating look at the UK's queer history (added to with the brilliant postscript of historical queer figures in English ...

    I received an e-arc over NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Overall I think the idea of the graphic novel is very good and I enjoyed the art style, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it was cause with the version I had quite some text was way too small to read and it w...

    Merry Men by Robert Rodi is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late November. Openly gay interactions and intimacies among Robin Hood and his Merry Men, though it's very obviously not all about men kissing, killing, or buggering, but about displaying more passion and real emotion...

    This was so much fun, and a delightful retelling of Robin Hood! Filled with LGBTQ+ representation, this found its way onto my to-read shelf very fast, and whilst it wasn't perfect, I very much enjoyed it. With thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for granting me an ARC, in exchange...

    An enjoyable read taken from a intriguing concept. I did have difficulty at times telling some of the Merry Men apart, but I suppose that's going to happen when you have a lot of buff dudes with beards in a comic. I would definitely be interested in reading more adventures of this Robi...

    It's an interesting conceit, though perhaps taken a bit too far for belief. Unfortunately, the art was not appealing to me and it was too short for the amount of story the author wanted to tell. ...

    Merry Men is enjoyable as a graphic novel; moreover, it is an eye-catching adventure. The book takes a new approach to a classic story with positive results. ...

    ?Merry Men? is an imaginative retelling of some of the Robin Hood mythology. Merry Men is a name used euphemistically to describe anybody who is non cis-het, and as such, this book is probably the most queer version of Robin hood that has ever been written. The plot is not hugely d...

    A twist on the legend with some political and religious commentary about being "merry" during the time period. The emotional conflict and shifts between the merry men didn't track completely for me. It wasn't clear if the author trying to represent the spectrum of human desire or indiv...

    This was a really fun telling of Robin Hood's Merry Men. I really enjoyed the sexuality in the graphic novel showing that people can be complex. The story was fun, heartwarming, and funny, and gave a great background to the Robin Hood "origin" story. I really enjoyed this book! This...

    ** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR MY READING PLEASURE ** Copy received through Netgalley ~ Merry Men, by Robert Rodi ????? 152 Pages Would I read it again?: Yes Genre: Comic, Graphic Novel, Historical, LGBT I have to admit, when I first saw the concept for this ...

    This is a really good re-imagining of the story of Robin hood and his band of merry men. The story tells the legend of Robin hood and how he became an outlaw living in Sherwood Forest with the Sheriff of Nottingham seeking to hunt him down and kill him. In this story the main charac...

    I'm always a sucker for Robin Hood retellings, and this was no exception. I love how Robin's place as being between the margins of society is expanded to include a fascinating look at the UK's queer history (added to with the brilliant postscript of historical queer figures in English ...

    I received an e-arc over NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Overall I think the idea of the graphic novel is very good and I enjoyed the art style, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it was cause with the version I had quite some text was way too small to read and it w...

    Merry Men by Robert Rodi is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late November. Openly gay interactions and intimacies among Robin Hood and his Merry Men, though it's very obviously not all about men kissing, killing, or buggering, but about displaying more passion and real emotion...

    This was so much fun, and a delightful retelling of Robin Hood! Filled with LGBTQ+ representation, this found its way onto my to-read shelf very fast, and whilst it wasn't perfect, I very much enjoyed it. With thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for granting me an ARC, in exchange...

    An enjoyable read taken from a intriguing concept. I did have difficulty at times telling some of the Merry Men apart, but I suppose that's going to happen when you have a lot of buff dudes with beards in a comic. I would definitely be interested in reading more adventures of this Robi...

    It's an interesting conceit, though perhaps taken a bit too far for belief. Unfortunately, the art was not appealing to me and it was too short for the amount of story the author wanted to tell. ...

    This was a really interesting take on the Robin Hood myth, with a cast of gay and bisexual men, as well as a trans woman. I liked the different reactions from the side characters, the dynamics within the Merry Men, and the portrayal of the persecution they had to escape. I also appreci...

    This is not the version of Robin Hood you are used to. And the author makes it very clear in the opening page, what to expect as you read along. This is the world of Robin Hood and that point in England, during and after the crusades, but with a gay twist. All the Merry Men are ...

    Much like Garth Marenghi, Robert Rodi knows writers who use subtext ? and they're all cowards. Taking the gay reading of the Robin Hood myth and running with it is not a bad idea: 'merry' as a synonym for 'gay' works, and it does fit with the whole idea of Robin as a companion of Ric...

    I loved everything about Robin Hood in my young years, and I was curious to WATCH a lgbt re-telling of the story. OF COURSE I WAS! I am not obsessed with graphic novels. But from time to time I am in the mood for something like this. It was Okay, but it didn't WOW me. ***ARC ...

    I?ve always loved Robin Hood. There?s a reason I was pretty desperate to read Sherwood when I first learned that it was going to be published. There?s simply something so amazing about his story that leaves me with an unshakable feeling of adoration. So, naturally, the very mom...

    I'm always a sucker for Robin Hood retellings, and this was no exception. I love how Robin's place as being between the margins of society is expanded to include a fascinating look at the UK's queer history (added to with the brilliant postscript of historical queer figures in English ...

    This was so much fun, and a delightful retelling of Robin Hood! Filled with LGBTQ+ representation, this found its way onto my to-read shelf very fast, and whilst it wasn't perfect, I very much enjoyed it. With thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for granting me an ARC, in exchange...

    ?Merry Men? is an imaginative retelling of some of the Robin Hood mythology. Merry Men is a name used euphemistically to describe anybody who is non cis-het, and as such, this book is probably the most queer version of Robin hood that has ever been written. The plot is not hugely d...

    This was a really fun telling of Robin Hood's Merry Men. I really enjoyed the sexuality in the graphic novel showing that people can be complex. The story was fun, heartwarming, and funny, and gave a great background to the Robin Hood "origin" story. I really enjoyed this book! This...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley I was sooo excited for this but unfortunately the execution fell kind of flat. I love the idea of a queer Robin Hood and liked how they blended actual historical elements to the story, but this was an incredibly dense read and I str...

    Thank You Netgalley for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest review As interesting as I thought an unabashfully queer Robin Hood telling would be, the execution is severely lacking to the point where I just didn't find myself enjoying the novel. The art style is...

    This was a really interesting take on the Robin Hood myth, with a cast of gay and bisexual men, as well as a trans woman. I liked the different reactions from the side characters, the dynamics within the Merry Men, and the portrayal of the persecution they had to escape. I also appreci...

    This is not the version of Robin Hood you are used to. And the author makes it very clear in the opening page, what to expect as you read along. This is the world of Robin Hood and that point in England, during and after the crusades, but with a gay twist. All the Merry Men are ...

    Much like Garth Marenghi, Robert Rodi knows writers who use subtext ? and they're all cowards. Taking the gay reading of the Robin Hood myth and running with it is not a bad idea: 'merry' as a synonym for 'gay' works, and it does fit with the whole idea of Robin as a companion of Ric...

    Thanks to Netgalley for this great read. I had read some single issues from this series but now I could read the first trade from the 'free to read' section. Merry Men is a queer retelling of Robin Hood. It seems that everyone is Robin's ex! In his merry men band are: Alan and Arthu...

    I loved everything about Robin Hood in my young years, and I was curious to WATCH a lgbt re-telling of the story. OF COURSE I WAS! I am not obsessed with graphic novels. But from time to time I am in the mood for something like this. It was Okay, but it didn't WOW me. ***ARC ...

    I?ve always loved Robin Hood. There?s a reason I was pretty desperate to read Sherwood when I first learned that it was going to be published. There?s simply something so amazing about his story that leaves me with an unshakable feeling of adoration. So, naturally, the very mom...

    This is a really good re-imagining of the story of Robin hood and his band of merry men. The story tells the legend of Robin hood and how he became an outlaw living in Sherwood Forest with the Sheriff of Nottingham seeking to hunt him down and kill him. In this story the main charac...

    I'm always a sucker for Robin Hood retellings, and this was no exception. I love how Robin's place as being between the margins of society is expanded to include a fascinating look at the UK's queer history (added to with the brilliant postscript of historical queer figures in English ...

    I received an e-arc over NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Overall I think the idea of the graphic novel is very good and I enjoyed the art style, but I just couldn't get into it. Maybe it was cause with the version I had quite some text was way too small to read and it w...

    Merry Men by Robert Rodi is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late November. Openly gay interactions and intimacies among Robin Hood and his Merry Men, though it's very obviously not all about men kissing, killing, or buggering, but about displaying more passion and real emotion...

    This was so much fun, and a delightful retelling of Robin Hood! Filled with LGBTQ+ representation, this found its way onto my to-read shelf very fast, and whilst it wasn't perfect, I very much enjoyed it. With thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for granting me an ARC, in exchange...

    An enjoyable read taken from a intriguing concept. I did have difficulty at times telling some of the Merry Men apart, but I suppose that's going to happen when you have a lot of buff dudes with beards in a comic. I would definitely be interested in reading more adventures of this Robi...

    Great ? let's all sully traditional English legends with homosexuality, and trannyism. Yes, the story's so old (hat) that I wanted something new done to it ? but not this. Artwork 3+ stars, ethos 0. ...

    It's an interesting conceit, though perhaps taken a bit too far for belief. Unfortunately, the art was not appealing to me and it was too short for the amount of story the author wanted to tell. ...

    Merry Men is enjoyable as a graphic novel; moreover, it is an eye-catching adventure. The book takes a new approach to a classic story with positive results. ...

    ?Merry Men? is an imaginative retelling of some of the Robin Hood mythology. Merry Men is a name used euphemistically to describe anybody who is non cis-het, and as such, this book is probably the most queer version of Robin hood that has ever been written. The plot is not hugely d...

    A twist on the legend with some political and religious commentary about being "merry" during the time period. The emotional conflict and shifts between the merry men didn't track completely for me. It wasn't clear if the author trying to represent the spectrum of human desire or indiv...

    This was a really fun telling of Robin Hood's Merry Men. I really enjoyed the sexuality in the graphic novel showing that people can be complex. The story was fun, heartwarming, and funny, and gave a great background to the Robin Hood "origin" story. I really enjoyed this book! This...
