535260-_sx360_ql80_ttd_

The Mysterious Order of Tarot has emerged from the shadows with its sights set on ruling the Realms of Power. With the courts of Swords, Cups, Wands, and Pentacles at his command the Emperor is ready to launch his assault on the Grimm Universe and the only thing that stands in his way is a wild card named, Talisman.

Grimm Fairy Tales: Tarot #1 gives us an inescapable destiny and a man who is stubborn enough to run from it. Always on the run, he attempts to avoid all he can to become the King of Pentacles and that means relying on those whose past actions are extremely suspicious. Reluctantly Talisman has very litttle choice, as his life may depend on it.

The art by Ranto Rei blends fantasy and reality seamlessly. It showcases various magical worlds for brief periods of time, as the story leaps between them and Earth. It manages to pack in a lot of action and story in the process as well. It even shows various creatures of myth, including the Morrigan and goblins.
