Grimm Tales of Terror is Zenoscope’s new anthology horror series, serving up spooky stories, Tales of the Crypt-style.
The format is familiar and intuitive to horror readers. We get a sub-story that features our narrator: a nameless red-headed female that I’m going to assume, from the cover of Issue 2, is a grim reaper of sorts. Her appearances bookend the comic as she serves comeuppance to deserving souls and give us readers the little fist bump we need as we see justice served.
Then, we have the story. In this issue, Web of Deceit, we get an interesting one about greed and the lengths people will go to serve it. Two brothers join forces with a man who appears to bankroll treasure hunters, to locate their father, who disappeared on an expedition two years ago. Who’s deceiving whom here? That’s the gist of the story, and it’s a good one.
It’s a Zenescope book, so you’re getting a sexy chick somewhere in the story – the grim reaper, in this case, featured on the cover and in the issue itself. Unlike some Zenescope books, though, this book is focused on telling some good stories. Out of all the Zenescope I’ve read so far, this is the title I’ll put on my pull list. I enjoy good, scary storytelling, and I love a good anthology series. Grimm Tales of Terror has the chance to be both.
