Gore By GG Studios. Written by Alex Crippa, Drawn By Emilio Laiso. $2.99 Just a little background to the company and title, this is a Italian Comics company and the title that has been released in the United States. The whole selection of the comics they offer are really unique. The concept is on the thought that everyone has a bad duplicate somewhere even the sweet and innocent fairy-tales we all know and love. In this comic, a portal has been open in Italy during Carnival and the evil sides to all the fairy-tale characters have come to play. The art is almost in a animation style, which makes this horror comic somewhat unique, if not a guilty pleasure. Emilio Laiso does a good job in making characters unique and the villains evil. The sketches that are in the back of the book show how much time he spent on getting the Fairy-tale characters just right. The story is…ok. I know this is the first issue and it is always the hardest to do, because of setting up characters and the story, but I find myself more drawn to the artwork than the story itself. Hopefully this will not be the case in issue two, but even if it is, the art is worth it enough to continue the limited series to its end.
