Grimm Fairy Tales #1 (2016)

New Series Launch! Grimm Fairy Tales is Back! The world of humans has forever changed and the Grimm Universe has been shaken to its core. It started with the Age of Darkness and now with the death of Sela Mathers, earth’s long time guardian, the Realms of Power have fallen into chaos. But Sela left behind one thing that may be able to save the world…her daughter, Skye. Don’t miss this new chapter in Grimm Fairy Tales that takes the series back to its roots.

I could be faulted for constantly harping on Zenescope’s Babe-addiction, so I’ll give it a rest this time. Instead I’ll just point out the other absurdities in this title.

Let’s start with the cover...

Grimm Fairy Tales Genesis: Heroes Rising

The greatest heroes in the Grimm Universe are rising to defend us from the forces of evil. Filled with 5 action packed, one-shot, feature stories on the most popular Zenescope characters. 32 pages of story with no ads!

To totally put it out there, I’ve been a lot more out of the loop on the vastly expanded Zenescope universe than I was a few years ago. There seems to be quite a few more characters and titles added lately and more likely on their way. In the next Grimm Fairy Tales Genesis one shot Heroes Rising, we take a quick look at five of those heroes from these books.

The pages of this book are as promised filled with nothing but story of five Zenescope characters, even if they are really short ones...

HORSHAM, PENNSYLVANIA — Comic book and graphic novel publisher Zenescope Entertainment is excited to announce that Grimm Fairy Tales, the company’s flagship series, returns this December.

Grimm Fairy Tales is the cornerstone of Zenescope’s Grimm Universe and its evolution shows just how much the company has grown over the past eleven years.  The new Grimm Fairy Tales follows Sela’s daughter, Skye Mathers, who has taken over her mother’s responsibilities as the Guardian of the Nexus.  And series creators Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco are taking the epic series back to its roots.

As far back as my early teens, I can remember titles beginning the trend of special edition issues of comics purely meant as fan service. Not that any of us necessarily complained about swimsuit or lingerie issues of our favorite characters right? Well, I’m sure anyone looking for more of that from Zenescope won’t complain with the Grimm Fairy Tales: 2016 Photoshoot Edition.

This special issue actually starts off with a short story meant to basically explain why w...

Grimm Fairy Tales: Genesis: Heroes Reborn

One issue…five action packed stories…no ads!  With 30 pages of action spotlighting the best known characters from the Grimm Universe, this is a great intro to the most popular Zenescope titles and characters. A great jumping on point for new readers, and a super value for current fans.

Zenescope’s obsession with flesh-baring, fairytale-inspired heroines is naturally polarizing: you can view these fighting femmes as either badass take-charge types that modern comics needs, or exploitative Barbie dolls used to move product. This reviewer holds the latter opinion. Not that I’m necessarily against flesh-baring, badass heroines per se; but in Zenescope’s clumsy mitts, the whole thing comes off as insulting. You are male, Zenescope intones. Our comic has boobs...
