GTT#8 is a single issue story centred around the tale of a lonely guy who picks up a scantily clad young hitchhiker, who at first is sweet, innocent and thankful for the ride, though as the journey progresses…….

Actually, make that two tales of lonely guys and hitchhiker, one book ending the other.

I’ll be honest from the start, I didn’t dislike this comic but at the same time, I didn’t find it all that great either. The artwork by Carlini is pretty good. It’s not unique or standout, but it does its job perfectly well. Same goes for the colouring and letter work, although the white text on black background used for one character wasn’t too clear on the digital copy I used for the review. The problem for me was the story. This could really have been a short, maybe 12 page, mini story but was instead stretched out across 22 pages with some of those containing what I felt to be just filler panels to help pad it out. All the filler content managed to do was leave me bored waiting for something to happen.

As my first foray into these self contained, single issue, stories of the Grimm Tales of Terror series, I’m unfortunately left unimpressed. I’m sure that other issues in this run have been or will be better, but I’m sorry to say that this one has left me un-eager to find out.
