Review: Grimm Fairy Tales #66
Out now from Zenescope
The main Grimm Universe series continues, and out this week from Zenescope Entertainment is Grimm Fairy Tales #66. Here are some of my thoughts on this latest issue.
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. Skye “Snow White” Mathers is home again, and is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. But the world has changed, a new evil is emerging, and Skye will find out firsthand that nothing at Arcane Acre can ever be the same.

Things are moving on a little quicker here, with the revelations after the last issue’s kidnapping.
There is more to learn here and a good amount of action to move things on. I like the comments towards Shang, as I think he deserves them! The splitting up of the duo works well and adds some interesting new dimensions to the story - something new with a twist for Sam. I especially like the twist with Skye; this can have significant repercussions for the story and potential fightback later on.
I enjoyed the art in this issue. Especially with some of the close-up aspects and expressions - these worked out very well and added to the story. There were some excellent action scenes, and I got into Sam's battle in this issue and the resulting discovery.
