Steampunk: Alice in Wonderland #1

The Wonderland ongoing series may have ended but that isn’t the end of Alice. An alternate dimension is emerging in the Grimm Universe – and what better place to explore it could there be than by going through the looking glass? This new Alice in Wonderland tale expands on the story that began in the Grimm Fairy Tales Steampunk Mini-series.

I’m not huge into it, but I do like some good old steampunk treatment of things. Now, Alice in Wonderland I have loved since I was a kid. So, combining them into issue one of Steampunk: Alice in Wonderland sounds cool to me.

Like her father, Alice is an avid inventor, much to her socialite mother’s chagrin. A portal is suddenly opened when she tosses an invention, transporting her to this new Wonderland...

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...

Red Agent: the Human Order #1+2

The world has become a dangerous place. Highborns and monsters from the Realms of Power hide in plain sight. Now the world’s leaders are looking to exploit their powers for their own gain, using them as spies and assassins for covert missions. But the Highborn initiative is there to balance the scales with their own group of super powered spies. Led by Britney Waters, better known now as the Red Agent, her team travels the world battling the forces of evil that lurks in the shadowy world of espionage and secret intelligence.

Well, let’s get this over with.

Zenescope presents us with yet another yawner, a self-involved story aping Marvel or DC’s less inventive efforts, filled with complicated backstory and other details I couldn’t care less about...

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...

The Jungle Book 2016 Holiday Special #1

The island of Kipling is turned on its end when the first snow falls on the jungle habitat. What will this sudden shift in the weather mean to the fragile peace between the animal tribes? And what secret does Bagheera hold that may change the fate of the island forever? Mowglii is determined to find out the chilling truth as writer M.L. Miller and artist Carlos Granda reteam to bring a new chapter to the critically acclaimed series!

Of the numerous series that I’ve let fall through the cracks keeping up with, this is one I really wish I hadn’t. I’ve always liked when classic stories are retooled in a creative way and that was definitely done here. Winter has arrived here and in the jungle as we step back into it with The Jungle Book 2016 Holiday Special.

After all the conflicts on Kipli...
