Críticas:

Castle Waiting creates a vibrant fantasy world not unlike The Lord of the Rings' Middle-earth but with a focus on the lives of women. Gorgeously illustrated in black and white, the book combines Christian and mythological imagery, including a bearded female saint, Rumpelstiltskin and various animal-headed characters. Fun to read and look at, Castle Waiting will enthrall fantasy readers of both genders. --Time"

Medley's light, gentle but exquisitely realized fantasy series Castle Waiting's a wryly funny fairy tale narrative that's both women-centered and women-powered. --Glen Weldon"

Medley's Castle Waiting is as funny and generous a mash-up of fairy tale and feminism was you could wish for. ... Medley focuses on quiet moments that reveal character rather than constructed intersections of fairy-tale tropes. Her small observations about human (or mostly human) nature are always warm and potent... --David Welsh ""Great Graphic Novels By Women About Women" ""

Starred Review. A set of linked nouveaux fairy tales, this graphic novel extends the story of Sleeping Beauty into a modern, feminist Chaucer. Medley's art is both exquisitely detailed and fantastically lighthearted. Though appropriate for all ages, this one-of-a-kind graphic novel is likely to appeal most to smart women in their 20s and older much older and to any man who believes in feminism and knows how to laugh. "

There's a clear salute to the power of sisterhood in Castle Waiting's stories of battered and exploited women banding together with kindly men to make a new world... The Castle Waiting castle draws people looking for a safe place to rest. The Castle Waiting book draws readers looking for much the same. Club rating: A-. "

[A] massive and stunning work of art... The tales inside Castle Waiting are extremely female friendly and are something I d love to see offered up to every little boy and girl as the required alternative to our more standard happily ever after tales. --Kelly Thompson"

With its quiet blend of fantasy, folktales, and character-driven storytelling, this charming collection brings the first 12 issues of an Eisner Award-winning comic-book series to a wider audience... Medley's storytelling... uses flashbacks and stories-within-stories in a manner that creates a rhythm that is both fun and gripping. Hard-edged lines with simple forms create black-and-white artwork that melds nicely with the fairy-tale feel of the stories. This volume is accessible for younger readers but filled with enough layers and depth to satisfy those looking for a bit more sophistication. "

Anyone who thinks damsels are meant to be in distress hasn't visited the right castle. Bella and Edward may live happily ever after, staring into each other's eyes for all eternity, but what happens to everyone else in the story once theirs ends? .... a smart, humorous story about strong women helping others and daily life at a castle that was meant for more than just love stories. --Jill Pantozzi"

Have you ever wondered what happened after 'Happily Ever After'? This graphic novel is a modern tale that incorporates fairytale characters and settings. Funny, thoughtful and not at all what you'd expect. "

[A] beautifully designed volume... 457 pages of glorious black and white illustration... The artwork is absolutely charming, hearkening back to older pen-and-ink styles, but with a cartoony touch to it. The characters are individually realized, both by the art and the writing... This would be a good comic book to give to younger people, perhaps especially if you know a girl who likes comics but is turned off by more mainstream fare... The twining of the fairy tales with the story is deftly and delightfully done. I love this series.
