The Courier #1+2

In 2033 less than 1% of the population survived a devastating pandemic virus. Half of those who lived were immune while half of the survivors mutated into something disturbingly subhuman. Now decades later, the world has rebuilt in many ways but has become something else entirely. Strongholds of human survivors have been set up independently of one another across parts of what is formerly the United States. The rich live in highly guarded Utopias where technology and even an economy has been restored. However, the vast “wasteland” between strongholds is a very dangerous and unforgiving place where the poor are forced to live in areas where gangs, pirates and the mutated roam free...

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...
