Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3770 - It's Monday, and I'm back to review blogging publications that have come in over the last year. Would you believe this is the 4th publication from Zenescope Entertainment that I've review blogged this year already?!
The item being reviewed today is the TPB for 'Myths & Legends Volume Four', which has been compiled from the Myths & Legends #18-21 comic book series arc, plus Grimm Fairy Tales Issue #3, into this trade paperback, (TPB).
What's this story about?
"As a new hit TV sensation, the duo travels from place to place disproving supernatural legends of Myth and Lore. But when Hank and Gina investigate the urban legend of the infamous witches den where a witch of terrifying power dined on the flesh of those unfortunate enough to venture to her doorstep only to find herself murdered by the townspeople the duo are in for a terrifying surprise when they both learn that the so called legend...may very well be true. Collects Myths and Legends issues 18-21 and Grimm Fairy Tales issue 3."
The ordering info is as follows:
Paperback: 156 pages
I found the art in this story arc to be more than satisfactory, and the colors mesh well with the art and the tone of the series.
The writing does seem to be slightly 'off', when the story line is compiled into this TPB. Waiting a month between comic book issues when reading in that format you probably wouldn't see that, but when compiled into a trade paperback format, it just didn't totally jell for me. It might be because the Myths & Legends issues were printed in 2012 and the Grimm Fairy Tales issue 3 was published in 2006. So there was a bit of time between the writing of the issues(?).
Still... It is a good enough read, and the compilation is one that should be read and go on your bookshelf, if you are into this Grimm Fairy Tales series.
I'm giving this TPB a Very Fine / Very Fine Plus (VF/VF+) 8.25 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale. Which is still a pretty good grade...
Plus, while you are at the web site, check out the other series that Zenescope has published this past year, and the years before.
