Tle giant than the usual and one little bean turns into a great big building destroying beanstalkWith help from Rapunzel and her trusty braids a pixie from Jack's past and a man with inventions. I had the pleasure of reading Rapunzel s Revenge for the 2008 Cybils Shortly after the Cybils ended Nathan Hale the illustrator posted sketches of the seuel Calamity Jack Thus began my year long obsession of waiting for the seuelOn page 50 of Rapunzel s Revenge Jack gives a uick explanation of why he s hiding out in the badlands of Gothel s Reach It s a throw away line two sentences long Calamity Jack fills in the blanks of that story as Jack and Rapunzel travel to the city to set things rightBefore Jack and Rapunzel arrive in town to stop the ant people and bring down another tyrant Jack reveals his past His story as expected is a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk but in an urban setting Jack also goes into his history and transformation from schemer and petty crook to the character we meet in the first bookMost of Jack s transformation is told through Nathan Hale s excellent illustrations I especially like the panels on page 13 that begin to show Jack s insecuritiesFrom page 40 onwards the focus is on Jack s return to the City with Rapunzel uickly they are in the middle of trouble with the Ant People terrorizing the train they re on and later the City itself The trolls are using the ants as an excuse to run the town with an iron fist With the help of a plucky and technology obsessed newspaper man they decide to put an end to Blunderboar s monopoly over the CityI loved Calamity Jack I have to admit to having a literary crush on Jack So having a graphic novel centered on him was two days of pure reading joyThe comic ends on a romantic cliff hanger and I m hoping it means that there might be a third adventure in the futureI bought the book for review
