Grimm Universe #3 Review - aminamat
Itís not a completely original idea to take a villain thatís been despised and humanize them by offering some sort of emotional back story. But on occasion this type of narrative is handled in a way that feels far more genuine than people might expect.

The script by Dave Franchini and Raven Gregory is simple but it tells a solidly built story that makes logical and coherent sense. Too often with tales of this style the mistake is made that the villain needs just one pivotal moment to go from good to evil, in this jauntís case there are several that all contribute to a final step into the shadows. There were times where the bulk of this adventure felt a tad bit forced but what saved it from being too heavy handed was the smart and consistent dialogue.

Amin Amat handles the art and the characters along with the world they inhabit simply look great. Each pencil stroke succeeds in highlighting just enough detail to establish authenticity and form as our villain goes forth on her path to darkness. There were a few instances where panels seemed somewhat lightly rendered but these were few and far between.

Grimm Universe #3 is another good entry thatís sure to please devoted fans of this franchise. Recommended.

3.5 stars out of 5
