Review: Grimm Fairy Tales #58
From Zenescope Entertainment, the adventures across worlds continue in Grimm Fairy Tales #58.
Taking over after the death of her mother, Sela, Skye Mathers is the new Guardian of the Nexus. With the help of Shang, her mentor, and her friends at Arcane Acre, she is learning the extent of her new powers and trying to figure out her place in protecting the universe. A new threat has risen, The Dark Princess, a tyrant that has broken free from a crumbling universe not much different than ours. Along with her generals, The Swarm, she began her assault on the Nexus by expelling Skye, Shang, and their allies, scattering them across the realms.
Now they are desperately trying to find their way back to Arcane Acre to stand up to the Dark Princess
before it’s too late…

Another world and another realm.
In this issue, we get a bit more of where Skye has been dropped. This is a dead world and the only living soul that she comes across is someone who can reanimate the dead. This makes for something interesting as Mary has been alone for too long, and things go pear-shaped quickly.
In another realm, Shang and the gang come to Oz for the next part of Shang's plan. This is a bit of so far, so good, but then we come across a further problem, which means the trio has to fight their way out. This parallel story telling is keeping the tease going well.
Skye manages to get a jump to a new world and this has its own problems - maybe one that got beaten earlier than the previous one. There is a nice twist on dealing with the threat, and we get a new version!
A good issue and it keeps the story going. We're nowhere near the end, as when they get back - there is still the queen to fight!
