Grimm Fairy Tales: Van Helsing vs Dracula #1
LAUNCH POINT Last year, Liesel Van Helsing was attacked by an evil from her father’s past? but she survived, and has moved on with her life. Besides becoming the name that vampires in the tri-state area fear, she’s also found love – in, admittedly, the strangest places. However, when old friends come calling on her for help, she will find herself pulled into a final conflict with the deadliest vampire of all time?
Another launch point that Zenescope do so well – bringing you up to speed on what’s gone before, and thrusting you into the action quickly. We get a lot in this issue – Liesel’s relationship with Hades, the Harkers, Mina and of course Dracula. It’s all very mysterious, with a link between Hades and Dracula and something going on with Mina and her link to Dracula! This looks to be an action packed series, with vampires getting killed and Dracula planning his next move!
Grimm Fairy Tales: Coven #2
Trekked by the New Crusaders, Baba Yaga and Avril seek the help of an evil witch named Liza. Will their plan work or will trusting a sinister witch prove a deadly mistake?
This series is beset by betrayals – left, right and center – with Baba Yaga being in the middle of it all. There is a history here, which we are still getting in dribs and drabs, while we do learn a little more about the witches and their powers and the New Crusaders. We are still yet to learn the who’s and the why’s behind it all, but there are seeds being sown!
