    The players have been introduced and the opposing force has been released, but with the story just beginning, we are given obstacles from which the heroes may never recover. To be able to level the playing field this early on in the narrative will shake the tale to the core, but at the same time, it will also strengthen the remaining members to forge onward ever more earnestly. Let us just hope that this new conviction won't result in more allies falling under the scythe and the rest succumbing to his companions while the world crumbles behind them. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Oct 4, 2016

    Whilst it's a technique that's been used before, it manages to capture the unique style ofGrimm Fairy Tales: Apocalypse #2 perfectly. It blends the superhero genre with magic and the supernatural almost seamlessly. But the plot just isn't up to scratch. It's still a good read, but feels a little more like a filler issue rather than a main story. The most interesting part for us was towards the end when Robyn Hood loses her cool with previous flame, Marian. When this story gets into the nitty gritty parts of it's characters – it truly flourishes. But it's main plot falls a little flat. If the next few issues work on the plot a little heavier, it could be a truly great story. Read Full Review
