This is an interesting read. In most of the Grimm Tales Of Terror specials like this, there is a selection of interconnected stories which all have a common link. This issue has that, and the story telling technique works well in this issue.
The difference is that this has links to some of the stories of the wider Grimm Universe. There are links to not only a recent Robyn Hood story but also the main Grimm Fairy Tales storyline happening right now.
The stories being told here have a common theme, and there is a fair amount of horror. This isn’t the usual monster-of-the-week stuff here, there are going to be ramifications across the Grimm Universe, and the threat level has ramped up.
I enjoyed how the stories were told, with some well-told aspects. The reveals were done well, and there are some classic horror tropes. The art is well done, with the mundane mixing with the gruesome. Yes, there are some bloody deaths here, and they are shown in equal measure.
This looks to be a good linking story for what is to come…
