This series of Grimm inspired adult versions of classic tales achieved maturity. And the villainess presented in previous installments must get her share of the spotlight. The story arcs presented in this compilation of nº.s 19 - 24 give the reader a close view on Belinda's past, origins, hates and source of power. The struggle between the two champions, Sela and Belinda will make casualties and escalates to deadly results.
You will find versions of "Rapunzel", "The boy who cried wolf", "The sorcerer's apprentice", "The snow queen", "Snow white and Rose red" and the short story "The lamp". The stories are all interesting although they have relatively few surprises (except "Snow white and Rose red"), and the interior art is quite variable. I like a lot Jordan Gunderson's art for example and Mark dos Santos is an expert ink artist, but there are other artists that, although quite good, aren't at the same level in my opinion.
A major strength of this series is, as always, the absolutely gorgeous cover gallery by Al Rio, Erik Basaldua and Joe Pekar.
