GRIMM FAIRY TALES: THE DREAM EATER SAGA #1 (Zenescope
Entertainment) is an ambitious start to a bleak and grand-scale fantasy
adventure. At the beginning of the apocalypse, a group of characters are
gathering for the upcoming battle between good and evil. Unprepared for their
fight, heroes and villains are choosing sides against a bloodthirsty and
violent menace. This is a thrilling crossover event that will expand into all
the titles under Zenescope comics.
Thane, a brooding and reckless soldier, foolishly enters the
Cave of Shadows. After making this drastic decision, Thane can never go back to
the life he once had. With war imminent, Thane completely understands that a
price must be paid with a sacrifice. To begin the ritual, blood is drawn as
Thane slides his hand through the blade.
A glowing shooting star rockets through the skies, flying
past different worlds. Pushing its way through, the Dream Eater crosses
dimensions, as the creature heads towards a single and precise destination.
When the Dream Eater lands on Earth, its birth is silent, a whisper in the
empty wind. This is the calm before the storm as death is coming for the rest
Driven by madness and vengeance, the Dream Eater will tear
out the eyes of its victims and feast on their liver. Out of fear and
indifference, the protectors of Earth have no intentions of intervening against
the Dream Eater. These protectors will only observe and watch as humanity dies
slowly. With its hunger insatiable, dead bodies are already starting to pile as
the Dream Eater travels across states.
Authors Raven Gregory (THE WAKING), Joe Brusha and Ralph
Tedesco pour on the narrative momentum, gradually building the suspense. The assembly
of characters have been collected and given a specific role, and the authors
wisely introduce new readers to various players in a simple fashion. As the
12-part miniseries continues, each protagonist will have their own
confrontation against the Dream Eater.
The alluring artwork by Roberto Viacava definitely deserves
major attention. He treats readers to well-drawn creepy scenarios and stylized
violence, and illustrates each major protagonist with an elaborate character
design. Delivering the goods, the Dream Eater’s first attack against humanity
takes place in a room littered with body parts. The major highlight is the
gripping images of the Dream Eater chewing away at its victims.
An epic effort, GRIMM FAIRY TALES: THE DREAM EATER SAGA #1
is a terrific kickoff to a dark and violent fantasy adventure. The Dream Eater
has been released and is stalking Earth’s inhabitants, claiming its first
victim. And readers can order this and future issues at the official Zenescope
