Grimm Fairy Tales presents Bad Girls #4 Review

Unlikely allies unite in the latest release but is it really something you need to spend your hard-earned money on?  Read on to find out.

The official description from Zenescope:

Sela learns how the Reavers are being controlled and tracks down Baba Yaga who is intent on using the crown to finish off the Dark One once and for all but will she convince Baba Yaga to postpone her revenge and turn coat against the other bad girls or will she too fall victim to the powers of the crown.  Don’t miss the baddest series in the history of Grimm Fairy Tales.

Before I type anything else let me make one thing clear: this is a fun and epic comic book that will please fans and might just be good enough to attract new readers.  Yes I’ve heard and understand the complaints about the Grimm Fairy Tales line but when the right writer and artist take it on they use the established devices to deliver something truly special, an excellent romp.

Joey Esposito helms the script, which turns out to be a quite fluent and entertaining adventure from start to finish.  As soon as you crack open the cover the words take you on a journey all over the realms throwing characters at you left and right.  Beneath the cacophony brought on by this and the shear action inherent is the amazingly witty dialogue that carries this comic book through its superb cliffhanger.

Eduardo Garcia handles the art and his characters are lightly detailed but they more than fit the world they inhabit.  His pencil strokes level the playing field with solid background designs and decent panels born from the needs of the narrative.  There are a few moments where our main characters look a bit off but these select scenes do not have a big enough effect to ruin the overall experience.

Great holiday shopping starts at!

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Bad Girls #4 is an excellent release that will keep fans on their toes as they enjoy the comic book in their hands.  Highly recommended.
