Some thoughts on the final issue of the Robyn Hood: Vigilante mini-series and the penultimate arc of Odyssey in Grimm Fairy Tales from Zenescope Entertainment.
Grimm Fairy Tales Odyssey #37
Truths will be revealed as Skye comes face-to-face with her most powerful enemy! Does the Guardian of the Nexus stand a chance or will she fall under the power of Merlin and the Knights of the Roundtable? Find out here in the penultimate issue to the Odyssey story arc!Writer: Dave Franchini

Skye comes face to face with Merlin, and it looks like she doesn’t have anything else to fight. She does though, and it gives us a battle against Merlin’s ‘Knights’. Things go pretty well for Skye considering, but eventually, the numbers are against here.
There is a little link to Grimm Universe 2020, and maybe that is an extra tease for a future story arc. Skye tries all methods, force and persuasion, but when it comes down to it, it looks as though Merlin has got his way.
I wonder if there will be some help from somewhere? There are two options in my head.
Robyn Hood Vigilante #6
Robyn, Lt. Boone and the residents of the Underground test the strength of their uneasy alliance when they work together to storm the Vigilante Hunter Squad robot factory. But once inside, they come to realize that the robots are the least of their worries. All of the enemies Robyn has been battling over the course of this series-and some brand-new, even more terrifying enemies-converge to put a stop to Robyn Hood’s mission once and for all. Robyn will pull out all the stops to defeat this onslaught of villains-but will it be enough?Writer: Ben Meares

This issue is pretty much a knock-down battle with robots, magic, powers and police. It’s well done, with the tide of the battle turning many times. Robyn finally gets a proper look at her tormentor, and that will have to wait.
Robyn does get some measures of revenge, and I like the way it’s done – she’s beaten, battered and bruised – the front cover says it all – and she still keeps kicking.
There is an ending, but it’s not the end – there’s more to come from this story and I can’t wait.
