Reviews: Grimm Fairy Tales & Grimm Tales Of Terror

Grimm Fairy Tales #12 & Grimm Tales Of Terror Volume 2 #13

Some thoughts on two Grimm Tales from Zenescope, out this week!

Grimm Fairy Tales #12

Skye’s search for Jasmine has brought her to New Orleans and to the doorstep of the evil Order of Tarot, which has plagued her ever since she became the new Guardian. As she uncovers Tarot’s secret plots, she realizes that it is more far reaching and deadly than even Shang suspects. Unfortunately for her, Tarot doesn’t plan to let her survive long enough to bring the information back to him.

Skye gets some monlogging in this issue, and it works really well (in small doses!) Things are wrapped up well here, and we soon find out that nearly everything that has gone on before is just the first act!
There is a fair amount of action in this issue, with some threats known, and some not yet realised. I enjoyed the read of this issue, and especially like how it links up with some of the other mini-series and the way it all works out.
I do think  the finish is a little fast, and unexplained though, but perhaps we’ll get more of that to come.

Grimm Tales Of Terror Vol 3. #13

Life is a precious commodity and one that should not be spent frivolously. So when a man’s wife takes ill and suffers the horrible fate of death, her miraculous recovery should be one of joy. But nothing is ever as it seems in the realms of Tales of Terror, and sometimes the greatest gifts should be looked at with the highest of skepticism. Be sure not to miss this new terrifying issue from the writer of Satan’s Hollow and Grimm Fairy Tales!

Based on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe (which I hadn’t read) I didn’t know what to expect from this story.

It isn’t the usual Grimm Tales Of Terror type story, but that’s not to say that it isn’t good. I really liked the story telling in this issue, with some nice pacing and a well told story told all in a narrative!

The art is really well done, and I like the style, colours and layouts.
