Grimm Fairy Tales 2017 Swimsuit Special Zenescope

Oh, Dear Lord, someone pinch me because I think I’ve died and gone back to 1978 with Grimm Fairy Tales 2017 Swimsuit Special!

The idea of a Swimsuit Special is something I didn’t think had survived into the twenty-first century, but here it is, alive and well. The blurb for Grimm Fairy Tales 2017 Swimsuit Special says: “The 2017 Swimsuit Special is a collection of gorgeous pinups of the Grimm Universe’s favorite heroines and villainesses illustrated by some of Zenescope’s top artists!” and there’s really not much more you can add to that.

Grimm Fairy Tales 2017 Swimsuit Special features slightly sleazy, soft-core bikini renditions that would have hormonal teenage boys and feminist PC stalwarts foaming at the mouth but for very different reasons.

There is a token story in Grimm Fairy Tales 2017 Swimsuit Special, called Beach Day, in which Skye goes to the beach – who would have guessed – and meets up with a suspicious Aquaman lookalike called Sandstorm who has some ugly pets but mainly it’s bare flesh and lascivious winks all round.

Need I say, the artwork is superb? Thought not. Leaf through Grimm Fairy Tales 2017 Swimsuit Special at your leisure. Although, tissues are not an optional extra.
