The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of GRIMM FAIRY TALES #1 from Zenescope Entertainment. Joe Brusha writes, Ediano Silva draws, Ivan Nunes colors, and Taylor Esposito letters.

Skye Mathers has some big shoes to fill. Her mother Sela was the guardian of the four realms, and probably the most powerful Highborn alive. But with her sacrifice, the guardianship falls to Skye, who is young and (mostly) untrained. Her training starts with Little Red Riding Hood and a big bad werewolf problem to solve, while elsewhere another threat is making itself known.

She’s not sure she can replace her mom, but she seems ready to give it the old college try. With Shang to help her, her plan is to jump right into training, which will mostly consist of finding her powers. This issue is a nice and easy beginning, giving Skye a small victory before facing the major challenge of the story arc. And the art is very much up to Zenescope’s usual high standards.

The Highborn world is one where the next big nasty is always right around the corner, and Skye will have to learn how to be a hero on the fly. It’s going to be an exciting flight, though, so check out this perfect jumping on point.

GRIMM FAIRY TALES #1 is available now at your FLCS or at zenescope.com.
