R.R.H. is a comic book series published by Devil’s Due/1First Comics, and is written and created by Orlando Harding, and illustrated by Andres Esparza.
The series is about one of the many descendants of The Little Red Riding Hood named Sydney Woodman who ends up getting kidnapped by a werewolf, saved by an Ogre, and finds out that it is her destiny to slay werewolves just like her ancestors have done.
What makes Orlando Harding’s R.R.H. different from most re-tellings of The Little Red Riding Hood, is that while it does re-tell the fairy tail as a typical monster slaying story, there are a lot of twists and turns that help make it fresh. With R.R.H. Volume 1 being the very first story arc in the series, it does a great job at setting up the world, characters, and tone thanks to the spectacular writing by Orlando Harding.
The artwork by Andres Esparza has a very good amount of detail when it comes to how the characters and backgrounds look, and that is also helped by Steve Cobb’s awesome coloring he provides over Andres Esparza’s lineart. The action scenes that are featured in the story of R.R.H. Volume 1 are illustrated very well, and help support the dark and violent tone that the rest of R.R.H. has to offer (this series is very gory at times by the way).
I will not spoil the ending of R.R.H. Volume 1, but will at least say that it does a solid job of setting up R.R.H. Volume 2 for sure.
So if you are interested in reading an independent and creator-owned comic book series that does a very good job at re-telling The Little Red Riding Hood story, then please read Orlando Harding and Andres Esparza’s R.R.H. from Devil’s Due/1First Comics by starting with Volume 1 of course.
I give R.R.H. Volume 1 Two Thumbs Up, and 4/5 Stars.
