Flipped on its head

BB Wolf and the Three LPs is a graphic novel that retells the classic fairytale by flipping it on its head.  In this telling, the pigs are racist KKK members.  The wolves suffer from discrimination and Jim Crow laws. 

The concept is really interesting, but the book didn't grab me.  Maybe it was the overly-ripped comic-book-hero-styleness of the protagonist.  Maybe it was the gruesomeness.  I think it was mostly a lack of attachment to the wolves.  I feel like I barely met them and suddenly a whole bunch of awfulness hit the fan and it never slowed down.
