Hellchild: The Unholy #1

Hellchild is back in a brand new series!

Angelica Blackstone is half-vampire, half-god, and she has a hell of a lot of aggression to work out. Hellchild: The Unholy is a roller coaster ride through the horror that dwells under society. From human sacrifice to reptilian gods to the dark and demonic powers hiding within seemingly everyday people, join the team that brought you Robyn Hood and Van Helsing for the darkest hero in the Grimm Universe!

Hellchild broke my criticizer.

This comic doesn’t have any pretensions. What you see on the cover is what you get: an attractive, psychotic, half-god, half-vampire slaughtering her way through throngs of monsters with her bare hands. That’s it. And it works. It’s trashy, it’s over-the-top, and it’s all good fun.

The art isn’t anything spe...

Grimm Fairy Tales: 2016 Photoshoot Edition

For the first time ever, get your hands on the Grimm Fairy Tales Photo Shoot Edition! All of your favorite Grimm Universe heroines and villainesses are here wearing the season’s hottest fashions. Some of the industry’s top artists contribute gorgeous photo shoot pin-ups of the Grimm universes most popular female characters.

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...

E.V.I.L. Heroes #2

The world as we know it is gone. There are no more countries. No more governments. There are no more people…only slaves. The new Gods of mankind have come and they rule with an iron hand.  But deep in a secret base beneath the Nevada desert man’s last hope.

E.V.I.L. Heroes continues its campy take one what a real superhero-dominated world would be like. The characters are stock, the art is a bit sloppy, but who cares? It’s big dumb fun. The moon gets destroyed. Donald Trump bows to anti-Superman. And DC’s frontrunners get a big ole stick in their collective eye.

My only hope is that the creators of EH don’t drag it out too long – stop when you’re ahead, guys. End it with a world-shattering bang, and then let the pieces float off into space...

Grimm Fairy Tales: Van Helsing vs Frankenstein #2

Liesel Van Helsing faces the devastating results of her last hunt… and now, she must stand up against a foe more horrific that she could’ve ever imagined. With her back against the wall and no one to help her, Helsing must use her wits if she wishes to survive her first encounter with Frankenstein!

VHVF is a slice of gory fun. The art is excellent, the story fast-paced and pretty much everything you’d need from a comic about hunting monsters. There’s even a bit of pathos, for you emotional human types. The creators of this little gem don’t waste too much time; each issue begins and ends with a fight, with a little bit of buildup in the middle. That’s what we want! Feed your public, Zenescope! We crave that sweet, gooey, slightly fish-smelling monster blood.

Final Verdict: 4 out of...
