The Grimms Town Terror Tales follows the adventures of brother and sister duo Hansel & Gretel as they face off against a nefarious witch that commands a legion of ghouls, ghosts, and goblins. Along the way, the kids must unravel a series of mysteries in hopes of tracking down their parents, who have mysteriously vanished.
Armed with an awesome array of techno-magical weapons designed for paranormal butt-kicking (technological devices fueled by magical energy), this dynamic duo must pick up where their parents left off, protecting Grimms Town from all the dreadful things that go bump in the night.
The Grimms Town Terror Tales: And So It Begins (Issue #1) is a horror comic that like the name suggests begins the story of two siblings called Hansel and Gretel (Familiar names, right?) Grimm who return from a weekend camping to find the main door of their home broken and they search inside the house to find strange noises and a weird green glow on various objects in the home. They discover a lot of secrets and face their fears while they try to figure out what happened to their home and where their parents are.
The story starts off like a haunted house being explored by the two kids with the sister being elder (around 13) and the younger brother being 10 or so. The humor and character development is great which helps to make reader instantly like the characters and care about them. As they explore, they uncover various secrets about their parents and the Grimm family history. They find a lot of things after they meet a certain creepy adorable character. Some sections are as exciting as that of the Warrens and their room full of haunted things from The Conjuring horror movies. I like the new friend they find along the way and the unexpected twist showing us a monster all of a sudden. The situational comedy, dialogues, scene arrangements in the comic panel all help to give the comic a Hollywood movie-like direction with perfect timing of twists. I could almost imagine the dialogues and special effects being shown. That’s how well presented and well-paced the story really is.
The horror comic is suitable for all ages, but since it’s horror themed, “middle grade” kids and above is recommended by the creators. It’s a great read for adults too. There are no swear words, no blood or gore, no suggestive themes or nudity. The fear and suspense is high so it’s a nice horror comic with essential elements that make a thrilling story without the need of adult stuff. Think of it like Ghostbusters. Horror and humor but no needless blood, gore, or suggestive stuff.
Overall, filled with humor, suspense, and action, the horror comic “The Grimms Town Terror Tales: And So It Begins (Issue #1)” will delight not just middle grade kids but adults as well because it provides a good light hearted horror read to lift up your mood while giving you the thrills. The characters are lovable and the story feels similar to a superhero movie. The horror comic is worth reading for the amount of content it has within its 30 pages. With the sequel to the comic coming in 2021, this horror comic provides a solid base for what’s coming soon besides acting as a brilliant standalone horror comic for audience of all ages. Be sure to grab it while it is free and even with a price, it’s definitely one of the best horror adventures you’ll own!
