The final release of this thrilling series is here, but does the romp rise to the occasion or fall victim to its own successes? Read on to find out.
The official description from Zenescope Entertainment:
The unthinkable has happened and an insane Highborn walks the burning Earth. “The Summoning” story arc roars to an end as Helios and his chosen rampage across the globe. With the world ablaze, Sela, Samantha, and their allies must contend with the fallout from last issue’s betrayal while keeping new threats at bay. It’s a race against time to save the world and if anyone survives, what new horrors, or new hopes, await them on the other side? The final OVERSIZED issue of Grimm Fairy Tales Myths and Legends is here and the beginning of the evolution of the Grimm Universe has only just begun.
When it comes to bringing a title to a proper finish, the road traveled can be a little bit tricky. Thankfully with this final outing now in hands devoted followers can rest assured that the sturdy creative team ended things the right way.
The script by Troy Brownfield and Raven Gregory offers up a sturdy but somewhat predictable affair but be prepared for some interesting surprises before you reach that final page. The authors work in unison to bring about some engaging changes while simultaneously ending the story in a way that leaves this world ripe for exploration. Normally I’d be let down by the lack of finality, but I can’t help but be excited regarding the future of its fellow franchises.
The art by Josh Hood certainly fits this final jaunt. His unique design sense melds well with this expansive and shared universe but there were times where his pencil strokes yielded some inconsistent visualizations that detracted a bit from the entirety of the experience. But overall his illustrations did exactly what they needed to do in order to give this issue a consistent feel that ended things the right way.
Grimm Fairy Tales Myths & Legends #25 is a solid finish to what has been a stellar series. Recommended.
