The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of GRIMM TALES OF TERROR #8 from Zenescope Entertainment. The story is written by written by Pat Shand (from a story by Joe Brusha, Ralph Tedesco, Dave Franchini, & Pat Shand); with art by Alessandro Miracolo, colors by Marco Lesko, and letters by Fabio Amelia.
Four friends decide to team up to do their term project; something that could go viral on the internet. They decide to something do a supernatural encounters podcast and interview fellow students. Talk turns to personal experiences, and the “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board” ritual was mentioned. The girls decide to do the ritual just for fun. What seemed like an innocent prank as a part of a project goes wrong, deadly wrong. Did the girls bring something back with them after performing the ceremony?
GRIMM TALES OF TERROR has more hits than misses, and I consider this story a hit. This series invokes the likes of Tales from the Crypt and Rod Serling’s Night Gallery; but with a modern day approach. Pat Shand creates a rather tense, frightening story without the gore factor. Backup by grerat work from Miracolo, Lesko, and Fabio Amelia, this is a book you have to check out.
GRIMM TALES OF TERROR #8 is in stores now or available at www.zenescope.com.
