Grimm Fairy Tales presents Zombies: The Cursed #3 Review

The end is here, but does it deliver something disappointing or wholly satisfying? Read on to find out.

The official description from Zenescope:

The horror comic of the year comes to its bloody conclusion! Dark magic spreads around the world, causing corpses to rise and join the Being’s army. Elijah reckons with an old evil he wishes he could put to rest, but can he do so before the walking dead overcome humanity?

It’s an emotionally potent finale that sees our hero step up to the plate and close some lingering plots from his past.  The creative team from start to finish is done building the foundation for this narrative, instead they just let it all run loose as a chaotically moving tale of a slave turned free man comes to an open but nonetheless bittersweet resolution.

Troy Brownfield pens the script and what the author has accomplished is certainly impressive in its own regard.  Granted we have an overwhelming cloud hovering over it via Grimm Fairy Tales Unleashed and even though that’s lingering above the inherent resonance of this tale is still unaffected. Truth be told even without the event making this possible I can say that this mini-series would still be more than worthwhile.  In short: whether you’ve been keeping up or not you owe it to yourself to buy these three comic books, trust me, you won’t regret it.

The art by Oscar Celestini is just as sturdy as one might expect.  He builds on the foundations before him while delivering some very emotionally charged scenes. Despite a few instances where the character renditions look a bit too rigid for their own good I still found plenty of treats to look at.  In particular, when the action kicks in the violence brought on by the whip is exceptional as a more than worthwhile zombie killing tool earns the spotlight.

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Zombies: The Cursed #3 is outstanding and even though it ends with a wide open cliffhanger that’ll make some fans more than a bit annoyed there’s still enough to certainly earn your time.  Highly recommended.
