Synopsis:  Cautionary tale meets twisted horror in this modern urban legend tale that begins with four friends — Richie, Ginny, Alexis, and Adam — traveling through Texas on their way to California for what is supposed to be a  Spring Break. When they stop to get gas they are told about another way to get to their destination by traveling down Route 66, as well as the Tale of the Phantom Toll Booth that leads travelers onto the road to Hell.

Review:  If you enjoy dark horror movies that leave you overthinking the details, Grimm Tales is the one for you. The artwork is dark and rigid, which adds well to the darkness of the story...

Grimm Tales of Terror Vol 3 #5

Writer: Dan Wickline
Artist: Massimiliano Veltri
Colours: Fran Gamboa with JC Ruiz

As a group of Hollywood hopefuls films what they hope to be deal-maker film, things take a sudden turn for the worse, leading to a gripping tale that shows what can happen when an novice film team attempts to push the envelope and things go terribly wrong.

In the traditional style of many “tales of horror/terror” series, this story draws its inspiration from ubran legend. Initially, I didn’t think I was going to like the book, but after a few pages, it grew on me a little bit. Coming into the series on the fifth issue won’t prove to be a problem to a reader, as the tale works well enough as a standalone story...

Grimm Tales of Terror Vol 3 #1

The power of invisibility has long held appeal for man. To disappear and do whatever you want unseen by another person’s eyes…could any man turn that down? The newest volume of Tales of Terror answers that very question…and terror is the operative word in this story.

We’ve all at least heard of the tale of the Invisible Man in one medium or another. Of the many powers that you could have, invisibility is definitely one at the top of my list. In the first issue of volume three, Grimm Tales of Terror puts a new invisible face on the H.G. Wells classic.

After taking part in an experiment, Tom takes the money and goes right back to his gambling. Later that night though, he realizes the invisibility experiment actually worked...

Grimm Tales of Terror Vol 2 #11

It is ingrained in our minds to be wary of strangers. Travelers often tell tales of hitchhikers with sinister intentions. In this spin on a classic urban legend, a hitchhiker in desperate need of a ride may find himself in for more than he bargained for in this twisted tale from Zenescope Entertainment.

Wait, we’re supposed to be wary of strangers? You mean I shouldn’t be running towards the van for free candy? I supposed I also shouldn’t be picking up random people on the road. Is that why hitchhiking is illegal? Or is it because of things that happen like we see in Grimm Tales of Terror Vol 2 #11.

This latest Grimm horror introduces us to a traveling salesman, who after seeing someone in the road ends up crashing. On Route 66 of course...
