One of my all-time favorite shows is Grimm. The show was about a police detective who finds out that he is a part of a long line of monster hunters. He proves to be more than your typical heir, as he uses his skills as an investigator and his natural skills as a demon hunter to be a tour de force. The show is steeped in world-building and is filled with monster mythology from all over the world.
The show was immersed in a multitude of plotlines and character hierarchies. One of the most pivotal points in the show was when the main character revealed to his significant other exactly who he is. This became a true tide change, leaving all the characters to change with the big reveal. In Acursian Chapter 19, we find Charlie revealing to Alison exactly what he has been up to.
We find Charlie back in Milwaukee and find out exactly what he has been dealing including the family curse. Initially, Alison doesn’t believe him which causes Corra to show her that she is truly a goddess. We are also taken to the 18th Century Isle O doll, where Bregon has taken Rory. Bregon reveals he is in search of the necklace Alison has as it emanates some powerful elements. By the issue’s end, Bregon takes a powerful step in securing power and Charlie may have found one way in finding him and Rory.
Overall, Acursian Chapter 19 is a great entry that pushes boundaries. The story by John Barrowman, Carole Barrowman, and Erika Lewis is enjoyable. The art by Beni Lobel and Tommy Lee Edwards is surprising. Altogether, the story that puts all characters on notice.
