Reviews: Gretel & Conspiracy: Social Media

Some thoughts on this weeks digital comics from Zenescope Entertainment

Gretel #1

Gretel’s story has been more of a nightmare than a fairy tale ever since the tragic events of her childhood. These events have left her life cursed for many centuries. After her heart-wrenching debut in Grimm Universe Presents, Gretel has been gifted the power of premonition. But when she has a psychic vision foretelling the end of the world, Gretel must open old wounds if she wants to try and prevent it from coming true.

Writer: Ben Meares
Artwork: Allan Otero

Introduced in ‘Grimm Universe Presents’, Gretel is a witch hunter. She’s a bit unique as it’s just her. Her brother from the tales is still mentioned, but things didn’t end well for him!
She has got a mentor and things aren’t looking good for him either!
In the meantime this issue is a full on introduction to the character and her background. Tracing back her history over many years, it works out quite nicely. We’ve got the threat of the witches and how their methods have changed over the years. I also like the way Gretel gets her powers – it gives us an idea of what she can do, while also talking about the limitations to it all.
The art is enjoyable, and I like the way the flashbacks are shown. This was a good beginning!

Conspiracy: Social Media

Social Media: 

Social Media has crept its way into almost every aspect of our daily lives. Some say its a blessing, others believe it’s the beginning of the end of civilization. Who really controls the news feeds or broadcasts the messages you hear? What is the truth? Can anyone be trusted?

Writer: Hans Rodionoff 
Artist: J. G. Miranda

The links are all starting to come together here. And this issue adds to that all. We get links to prior stories – such as Denver Airport, and the back story to this all. I liked the way this built up, with all of the social media issues today, this seems very well timed!
Nevertheless, this was a good read, and although a little predictable in the end, I liked the way it all leads up.
The final issue will be interesting!
