Reviews: Mystere & Grimm Fairy Tales: 2019 Holiday Special

Two titles out from Zenescope this week – Mystere #3 and the Grimm Fairy Tales: 2019 Holiday Special – here are my thoughts!

Mystere #3

As Mary goes toe-to-toe with the Blacksmith, she is found asking herself a whole lot of questions. Who is he? Why has he been slaughtering the homeless of New Orleans? And, most importantly, why aren’t her powers working against him?

Writer: Ben Meares
Artwork: Sergio Arino

Mary gets some answers, but that leaves more questions. We discover who it is behind the Blacksmith, but we still are yet to learn why she is connected to Mary. This issue kicks off with a well done battle, with some more strange goings-on. Then we get a good history lesson, which harkens back to the first issue (a nice touch). Mary has her friends, but they don’t seem to be enough! Next issue will hopefully show the end plan!

Grimm Fairy Tales: 2019 Holiday Special

Tis the season to be terrified, as Grimm Fairy Tales returns with another year of holiday horror for the whole family. This issue includes three new bone chilling stories set during the happiest time of the year told by your favorite Yuletide figure, Krampus.

Writers: Joe Brusha, Ralph Tedesco, and Dave Franchini
Artwork: Various

Krampus is our storyteller here, with three nice horror tales for Christmas (as they should be).
The fist one is a nice set up, with some nice twists in the tale. I like how this what set up and a second read of it makes it very good.
The next tale is one of revenge – a dark tale with some nice twists again. I like how the ending finished off in a dark/light manner. That was a cute cat!
Finally Krampus gets involved with a snowman, teaching some bullies a lesson!

It may not be Christmas yet, but this was very festive!
