Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland: Clash of Queens #3 Review

The time has come to see plans and players fall into place, but should fans care? Read on to find out.

The official description from Zenescope:

A new and powerful being has made its presence known in the realm of Wonderland and nothing will ever be the same. The seductive Trickster has begun manipulating the Queens for her own devious means. Means that will lead to her acquiring the most powerful weapon in the realm of Dreams… Death’s Ebony Blade.

GFT Wonderland-Clash of Queens 3_Variant CoverThere’s a lot going on within the confines of these pages especially when it comes to a new antagonist that’s clearly made her presence known.  Deaths abound as the creative team crafts a complicated path fit with perils along the way. To put it simply: when we deal with the shared universe of Grimm Fairy Tales this is exactly the type of fantastical yarn that I hope to peruse.

Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco work with script writer Troy Brownfield to build up a journey that seeks to change the ruling landscape of Wonderland. From the Queens to the Trickster there’s a lot to keep us engrossed, as the author offers a brisk but compelling read that’s worth your time. A specifically interesting set of circumstance befall the Grey Knight, and the narrative focus on him seeks more than just simple attention as the bodies pile on with a whole helping of madness.

The visual side is downright intriguing as Manuel Preitano offers a competent and thoroughly engaging display. The way the thick and thin pencil strokes convey a moody atmosphere that nails the type of rendition this arc deserves and needs. Combine the line-work with the colors done by Daniel Morales and you have a comic book that’s worth the price of admission. To sum up: we have a component with a set of panels that warrants praise.

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Wonderland: Clash of Queens #3 is a superbly entertaining entry. Between the talents and the jaunt at play we have an outing that pushes evolution while paying attention to its own unique foundation. It easily comes highly recommended.
