This is quite an action-packed issue, with battles and monsters abound! We get the battles on two fronts as Carman and Diego escape the world they are in with mysterious help. And Skye and the rest battle more.
I like the split between the two, and the combination of the battles is interesting on different sides.
We also get the appearance of some help for Skye, connecting the threads from some of the spinoff stories. That adds to the whole ‘Grimm Universe’ feel of this threat.
The artwork is excellent, and the monster battles are really well played out and have some clever aspects.
There are still some new aspects to learn in this story and more to come.
Gretel: Mortal Vices
When Calabar is reluctantly reunited with members of her estranged “family,” Gretel must help her come to terms with her horrific past while continuing to uncover the intricate layers of Mother Margaret’s schemes. But will they survive their latest startling discoveries?

This originally started off as a run-of-the-mill witch hunt by the duo, but it progressed into something darker.
I like the action in this issue and the inventive ways the witches have powers continues in this issue.
You can feel much of the tension between Gretel and Caliban in this issue, and things do take a rapid turn. I’m not sure what is next for these two.
The artwork combines the magic and the location well, with some good action pieces and human/character work as well.
