Zenescope slipped Major Spoilers a peek of two titles currently available at your local comic book store. First up is Grimm Fairy Tales #11, telling the tale of Bluebeard. I have the first trade of Grimm Fairy Tales in my “need to review” pile. The art in this series is really good, and I love the Al Rio covers. The stories are not half bad either, somewhat predictable, and light on the gore and violence, but fun none-the-less.
The second preview is of Se7en #3: Sloth. This issue follows John Doe as he claims his third victim – a drug dealer pedophile whom John slowly tortures over many months. This series is slightly more disturbing (see my other Se7en review), and takes a radically different approach to the art style.

He claimed that his work would be followed. He claimed his work would be studied, and he claimed the lives of those who have sinned against God. One of the most terrifying killers in cinema history has returned after a decade long absence… A drug dealer pedophile who is too apathetic to care about his own life or the lives of those he infects has become an unwilling pawn in one man’s masterpiece.
