This was a big issue and not slow at all!
Dealing with Wonderland always has its dangers, and this issue delves into the depths and history of the place. Of course, madness is within, which is the story's crux.
We start with a taste of what is to come with an attack on a bizarre royal family, things don’t go well, and the attacker is confronted with Morgan Le Faye. From there, we are on our world with the alter ego of the Black Knight first defending a case and then a subsequent mugging (this is an interesting point and is added to at the end of the issue - something to look forward to?)
After being transported to Wonderland, it is pretty much non-stop for both The Black Knight and Morgan Le Faye as they battle across the realms to stop this threat. This was well done, and it makes sense for all characters involved.
This issue adds a new layer to Wonderland, The Black Knight, and Morgan Le Faye. And I look forward to seeing more of them.
The art continued on excitingly. Yes, you can see the changes, but they are not too jarring, and a lot is going on throughout the pages in this story.
The ending has a couple of teases, and we are beginning on something else…
Grim Fairy Tales #70
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.

Continuing, we get the spilt party looking at two different forms of darkness. In the void, we see that two of our heroes aren’t dead and need to work their way out of these depths. It was very interesting, and the horrors within played out very well. I wonder if this will build into later aspects of the story.
Meanwhile, Skye and the rest are facing another darkness - something more physical, but there is more of the mental side. It links up nicely with Belle’s latest adventure, and maybe this will bring her more into the fray?
Throughout this issue, there was some good art, the tone at the moment is very dark, but it is all fitting with the story.
