Review: Grimm Fairy Tales #9

Freshly released from her lamp after a thousand years, Jasmine is adapting to her new world just fine. But someone still wants her power and they’ll go through anyone and anything to get it…including Skye Mathers and all of Arcane Acre.

That’s quite a busy cover there – i wonder how it would ‘pop’ out to the casual reader as a thumbnail though…

The issue starts quiet enough and then we get the evil stalking through the rooms of Arcane Acre. When I saw this I wondered when they were going to put in some alarm system, but it seems that they have because Skye was on the scene quick enough!

What we get next is some interesting backstory to Jasmine and now a name to go with the evil that is in the Shadowlands – as well as his link to Tarot. Luckily we don’t get too much information, as this arc builds up even more – and this was a good issue to put a pin in and come back to later.
The action was very good, with Gruel showing his power and what he all about, Skye seems to be in trouble here!

I enjoyed the art in this as we flitted from a number of different locations. I especially liked the Sphinx – having it as a great beast instead of a noble stature we think of is a nice touch!

Next issue looks to be a one-shot story featuring the return of a character….
