    Grimm Fairy Tales: Dance of the Dead is supposed exist within a realm which has been touted as an area of no escape, and yet it has been proven in the past that with the proper rites, it is possible. And now with two new prisoners to the Shadowlands and the introduction of beings existing within this prison, is all that we have known before now to be proven wrong? That premise serves to expand upon our knowledge, and if this is just the beginning, I cannot wait to see how it will end. Read Full Review

    Dance of the Dead #1 is a steady treat that sets this mini off in the right direction. Two powerful women keep the book on track while the team behind them does what they need to do in order to make the final product more than a bit accessible. To put it simply: this is a read that does a lot right from cover to cover. So by all means rush out to your local shop and please just grab yourself a copy! Read Full Review

    The art by Enn and Ario Murti features contrasting color palettes which stands out. The artists distinguish the few settings with ease putting the emphasis on either dark or bright colors. Read Full Review

    I want to read more of these characters, but this issue won't encourage new fans to continue. It's a decent read, but the story seems padded and all aspect of the visuals are mixed. I'm a Zenescope fan, so I'll continue on, but my fingers are crossed for improvements. Read Full Review

    This first issue of Dance of the Dead takes some time to find its footing. It re-introduces Mystere and tosses Jasmine into the fray. After Day of the Dead, I am curious as to what's next for Mystere, however I don't have that interest in Jasmine yet. She feels forced into this situation and her story isn't enough to care about just yet. Hopefully the two women can help each other figure out where they should go next and how to escape the Shadowlands. In the meantime, they've got hordes of goblins, skeletons, and other assorted monsters to fight. Read Full Review
