Grimm Tales of Terror 7

As the legend goes, if you say those words three times while
looking in a mirror, the ghost of Bloody Mary will appear behind you. But what
happens when an innocent ghost story becomes much more real?
The urban legend of Bloody Mary has been around for
years.  There may be some variations in
the telling, but it all boils down to the same thing, and evil spirit that
lurks in the mirror, just waiting for someone foolish enough to call her
forth.  A favorite amongst slumber
parties which is where this very incident occurs.  Having lost her mother, Mary Wright believed
her new step-mother to be the culprit to her mother’s sudden demise, she just
needed to prove it.  Her friends of
course were rather skeptical, but Mary was sure of it.  So, when the girls summoned Bloody Mary
during their slumber party, Mary became determined to find out her
step-mother’s true motives, especially when Bloody Mary kept on appearing before
her.  She got her chance and Mary found
out more than wanted to.
A pretty good issue, although there were too many characters
named Mary, so it got a little confusing at times.  Ralph Tedesco kept the murder mystery and
revenge plot going good, but the one thing that bothered me, yet again was the
dual artists on this book.  The artwork
was good, don’t get me wrong, but it would be nice to see an issue done all the
through by one artist.  Zenescope has
been notorious for this with a lot of their series.  When I read something, I like a steady flow
of the art to coincide with the story, but when the style changes half-way
through, it become distracting. 
Something like that usually indicates a time difference, like a
flashback or something, but in this case, it’s just a swap off for someone
unknown reason.  Art problems aside, I
enjoyed this issue and I see the story quality increasing as the series goes
on.
So, be careful of what you say in the mirror because you may
be calling forth more than you bargained for. 
However, I would recommend going to check this issue out for a great
story of murder and revenge.  Don’t worry
though, you won’t have to say its name three times in the mirror to conjure up
this tale.  For more info on where to
find this issue, visit the Zenescope
website, or the Zenescope Facebook page.
