Based on the hit NBC television series Grimm, this comic book series takes Nick and team on all-new adventures and to all new places. Grimm #2 stays true to the show in almost every way imaginable. You can read the comic and almost hear the actors’ voices as you do. As with the television program, we seem to be introduced to new Wesen (pronounced “vessin”) all the time. But that’s only part of the story…

We start this issue with Nick (our resident Grimm and a police detective), Hank (his partner on the police force), and Monroe (a Blutbad clock connoisseur) in Vienna. Having recently traveled there to track down Nick’s mother and the three coins that she was hiding, they find themselves in the company of a badass female Grimm (who dresses as if she moonlights as a dominatrix) and the Resistance with whom she fights. Finding that his mother left him a clue to decode, he sets about trying to unlock the secrets within. Unfortunately, the Wesen army of the Royal families are hot on his trail. A little retreating, some sexual tension, and a whole lot of bullets later, we bear witness to what could be the end for some of our beloved team. Only time will tell because the issue ends at a very exciting part!

I’ve haven’t had much exposure to Vampirella other than drooling at her famously scant costume in issues of Wizard when I was a teenager. In 2010, Dynamite Entertainment acquired the rights to Vampirella and began publishing her series soon thereafter. One of her longtime allies, Pantha, gets a spot in the limelight with the debut of her own ongoing series, Pantha. This release is the first move of Dynamite’s planned expansion of the Vampirella universe.

In ancient times, Sekhmet the Egyptian goddess of war, committed some atrocities. As punishment, Ra separated several of her aspects and sentenced them to eternally roam the Earth, atoning for Sekhmet’s sins. Pantha, an immortal shape-shifter, is one of these aspects. In this debut comic, she’s investigating a missing persons crime near the Mexican border in New Mexico. What she finds introduces a nemesis long thought dead and a mysterious woman, Mayra, who seems to have some link to Pantha’s Egyptian past.
