Review: Grimm Tales Of Terror Quarterly: Hearts Desire
From Zenescope Entertainment
This week is a new large-sized issue from Zenescope Entertainment with Grimm Tales Of Terror Quarterly: Hearts Desire.
Art is interpretive by nature and sometimes we can see what we want in a piece, but what happens when the piece shows us our deepest wish…our heart’s desire? Will it be all that we hoped it would be, or could it become twisted into something much worse?

Linking these stories is artwork. With Ceres being the linking narrator between them all, we get a mixed selection of horror in all of them.
The first story features some interesting vengeance from beyond the grave. It’s a slow beginning but has some excellent parts and a suitable finish. I like the way it plays out. The character seems normal enough, but as we get into the story, we learn more about him and what he did.
I like the artwork in this issue, with some good use of shadows and flashbacks in the story.
The next story is my favourite, with some gruesome revenge and a well-played method. It’s still unexpected and has some very dark turns. I can imagine where the writers’ inspiration came from. The use of the artwork in this story is very well played out and has some very special significance.
The third story was twisted, and it went in places I didn’t expect. There were some good moments with the kids, and I didn’t expect the twist. I liked the finish of it all as well.
Finally, we go back in time with a good link to them all and perhaps something about the artwork featured in the stories before. I like the change in time and location here; it adds some good history.
In all a great horror anthology with a good thread linking them all.
