Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass #4 Review

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland-Through the Looking Glass  Banner

Considering the fact that we already know where this particular tale is bound to conclude, do fans really need to pick it up?  Read on to find out.

The official description from Zenescope:

Johnny and Adina have arrived in Avellan, a city of humans who have been hiding from the darkness of Wonderland, just like them.

It seems that Johnny has found sanctuary on his way to salvation – can he and Adina stay with these people, or has the madness of Wonderland followed them into this safe place?

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland-Through the Looking Glass 4_CThere’s a lot to love as this absolutely fascinating mini-series nears its end.  It’s a bloody and fantastic fourth entry that plays with all the familiar elements of the universe as it exposes one man’s descent into true madness.  It can be said that what we bare witness to is a destined path but somehow this creative team makes it interesting from the first page to the final panel.

Compliments are owed to both Pat Shand and Raven Gregory, who skillfully work this yarn in a way that’s going to excite people.  Followers who have been waiting for a particular development will be overjoyed as a creature of sheer ferocity and terror makes his presence known.  My one complaint is that when the key moment occurred it just happened so quickly that it honestly left me wanting more growth and space, but that said it was enjoyable.  In short: this is without a doubt a comic worth owning.

The art by Joel Ojeda is pleasant to look at, but beneath the calm exterior of the pencil strokes beats a whole new animal.  And to the talent’s credit he gets to unleash it here, and he does it in style.  He captures what works on the visual side of things while uplifting the text while it reaches a very important climax.  In truth, the pictures are quite functional but there were a few that needed some more polish and attention.

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass #4 skillfully slices away the competition, as it earns a spot on your pull-list. Recommended.
