Grimm Fairy Tales Unleashed: Vampires: The Eternal #1

A long while back I wrote about Zenescope Comics’ vampire mini-series titled Grimm Fairy Tales Unleashed: Vampires: The Eternal and that was that. Well, all three issues in the series are out now and I had a few minutes to read Issue #1. Check out my thoughts on it below.


Vampires invade the Grimm Universe – and these ones don’t sparkle. When Samira, the Queen of all Vampires, returns to Earth after over a century of banishment, she rallies her troops in a mission to kill every monster and High Born who won’t bow before her. Can Helsing, daughter of the famed vampire hunter himself, send Samira back to the grave before the world is enslaved? Unleashed mini-series.

Here’s my break down…

The inside artwork was well done, nothing super amazing, but well done. As for the cover art – it’s fantastic. I loved the covers for The Eternal #1, but then I almost always love Zenescope covers. The first cover for this one is powerful and beautiful. The second is badass and sexy as hell (which is usually the case with Zenescope comics).

There was no mention of Helsing in this issue. This one explored Samira, the Queen of all Vampires (although why she is considered queen is a mystery to me). We see her past and her present. We see her hatred for romantic vampires and vampires with humanity. Her wish is for vampires to be wicked and evil beings. Parts of the dialogue were a little too old school and cliché, but I am interested in seeing what will happen next.

  1. Have you read Max Landis’ Extinction Parade comic book series, which is about vampires during a zombie apocalypse? It’s pretty good.
