Grimm Myths & Legends
on December 17, 2011
This was a really fun read and the artwork was well done. As a fan of the Grimm Fairy Tales series it was an interesting addition, I personally have been missing the old premise of Sela or Belinda bring the book to people who are in trouble or have a problem that relates to them rather than the current mystical war thing going on. This is a lot more down to earth and I liked it. The main character Britney is interesting and likable and of the cast a few of the people she works with stood out as interesting (albeit some came off one-note, but this is in the feel of a horror flick) which was good for the suspense. This looks like it will be a good read with the action and plot laid out in this arc.
There is one point in this trade that drove me nuts, it was how random censorship of swear words was used. You'd assume that in an independent title marketed towards adults there would be none of the "@$%!" things but here it's used on-and-off, sometimes they have the characters actually say the actual expletives then for no reason at all other times will use symbols. It's very grating and a sign that the editor needs to get it together.
