People are dying in a small southern town, consumed by some kind of monster that leaves nothing but a pile of bones behind. When Skye's magical book leads her and Samantha to the town to investigate the murders they find a trail that leads to one of the realms of power, and to a magical creature like nothing they've ever encountered before.

    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Apr 26, 2017

    This new series seems to be concentrating more on teaching Skye how to become a Guardian, constantly keeping the training wheels until they have no choice than to allow her to have a baptism by fire. While I can appreciate individualistic stories, the overall view seems lacking, more interested in showing the past than looking forward to the future. And while the Order of Tarot was hinted in a previous issue, that clue seems to have been dropped by the wayside in favor of the phenomenal artwork, as we witnessed in this story. I cannot wait until the dam of evil bursts, at least then we will have something to look forward to instead of waiting for an event which can be finished within the confines of one issue. The appetizer is over too quick and thus leaves us with an unsatisfying taste in our mouths, all while waiting for the snack of next month...I want a real meal. Read Full Review

    Skye continues to follow in her mother's footsteps, this time going to Neverland. The story justifies some character growth, a rarity in most hero books, and the visuals are good. You can't go wrong following Skye as she goes out on an adventure. Read Full Review

    I feel that Grimm Fairy Tales #5 is for a niche audience -most certainly with male readers in mind. That doesn't make it bad, however. I enjoyed the read but I wish there was more to it. It's not always easy to fit a well rounded story in a limited amount of pages and while there was a start, middle and end to this I was left with a feeling of "Why did I read this?". It did make me more curious about the series in general, which is a good thing. I would not be against reading more about Skye and seeing how her training goes and hopefully can also learn more about her past. This is a good issue for new and older readers a like, the writing isn't that strong and I wished the characters from Neverland spoke a bit more formally to add to their fairy tale feel but overall it was a fun read with pretty nice artwork.

    Grimm books are an acquired taste, like the best junk food their packaging tempts and teases, yet this time around, they have left a left a sour after taste. Read Full Review
