Review / Verdict
I read this graphic novel a way back but as I made my ... well, summer cleanings I re-founded again. As I am a great fan of Scanlon books I tried this one. Unfortunally this book not as good as the others I reviewed first. I think the main fault were the drawings. They didn't appeal to me. Which is a bit sad since I enjoyed the character. When is going to be a Grimm novel? That would be an interesting reading.... Most of the stories are tell by a narrator that met Grimm. This book also introduces us Luciana Falcone. I think that she is better than him. There is one interesting story where Grimm is an inquisitor in the warhammer 40k universe. Very good. Would I suggest the reading to anyone outside the warhammer universe? No. To anyone who likes comics and warhammer I think they will enjoy it. Well at least not hate. There are many phrases that remind me of Aesop Tales or Grimm Fairy Tales.
