Shattered by the events of GFT #100, the Grimm Universe is no more, and the Age of Darkness has begun. With the Realms of Power combined, the Dark Horde has finally realized its plan to rule Earth.

But the darkness is just beginning and the Dark One and his Queen have unimaginable terrors planned for humanity. With their generals ruling cities throughout the new world and the Realm Knights dead or scattered, few are left to oppose them.

But even as the darkness falls, heroes will rise and fight against their evil even if they must make the ultimate sacrifice doing so. Don't miss the darkest Grimm Fairy Tales series ever.

    Geeks Unleashed - Chris Romero Aug 1, 2014

    What I can appreciate most about this book is that it builds the 12-part arc so well with a narration of the apocalyptic events, we don't need to be familiar with the characters or previous arcs to jump on and into the madness. Check out Realm War: Age of Darkness #1 this week and prepare yourself for war. Read Full Review

    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Aug 7, 2014

    Realm War opens like a war movie, with a council convening to discuss any possible options. (Here's a hint: There aren't any.) There's a great deal of doom and gloom and for good reason. This is like the Empire Strikes Back of the Grimm Universe, but I don't see a bunch of little teddy bears coming to the rescue in a sequel. At this point, the best the characters can do is survive, but the odds are not in their favor. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jul 21, 2014

    Still on the whole this was an excellent first issue for Realm War. Despite the horrible bleakness of like mass deaths and impalings and such Realm War manages to keep an odd sort of perspective about itself in a way that reminds me of Independence Day. The sincerity that Realm War affords its more ridiculous elements extends to the entire comic and as such the horribleness of the events never feels like cheap shocks or shallow grabs at pathos but like the components to an epic story and its very easy to be swept up in the same sincerity and confidence of the creators. Realm War manages to feel incredibly self assured and sincere without ever feeling too dark or too self obsessed so as to come off pretentious or shallow, which is frankly amazing given how dark and big and climactic this series is, recommended.
