Grimm Fairy Tales: Realm Knights - 'Joe Brusha',  'Pat Shand'

*Book source ~ Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.


The Realm Knights are called together to fight a powerful evil that has escaped from Tartarus, but he’s not going to be easy to defeat.


I haven’t read comic books since I was a kid many years ago (no, you may not ask how many) and even then I didn’t read super hero type comics. I read things like Duck Tales, etc. So the Realm Knights and the Grimm Universe are something I’ve never heard of and from this graphic novel there are indications that there are many of stories of the Realm Knights. This is sort of a stand alone unless you’re like me who prefers to start at the beginning.


The illustrations are fantastic, but the story was so-so for me. And what’s up with Hades? He seems to be a bit of a douche. Maybe it’s just because I’ve never read any other stories in this series, but I didn’t care for him. And where was Zeus? Again, I must have missed something from previous installments. The ending has an opening for another story, but I don’t think I’ll be continuing since I didn’t really connect with any of the characters. I think this series is one that should actually be read in order to get the full appreciation of it.
