This issue completes the mini-series well. It puts Shang on the path that we know will lead him in the Grimm Fairy Tales and adds something for the future.
There is a lot of action in this issue, with battles against dragons and more. I like the way that Shang and Mulan work together and there are some good moves between them – they both had some equal roles of the dice.
The fight scenes were well choreographed and there is some excellent art to go with it. I like the final battle and the conclusion.
There is an interesting epilogue here, and I like how it is a double tease for the future.
I did wonder what this mini-series was going to bring to the wider Grimm Universe, but it looks to link back nicely and something to refer back to when the time comes.
