Scream Street #12 Secret of the Changeling



So here's book 12!

The story has them travelling to the fairy realm this time. But I'm ahead of myself.

The beginning was filled with more than one shock to the heroes, from a shrieking banshee to a shape-shifting baby named Ditto (coincidentally - and please forgive me here - it is exactly the Pokemon show reference here - with an exact definition).

There's action everywhere you look and even more so in the desolate, puffy, sparkly, woodland creature laden forest of the fairy realm which I started the post off with in the first place.

Yes, I said desolate. The place is completely empty thanks to the deranged but beautiful (isn't it always like this?) Crimson Queen *no hint intended*. Characters that are almost out of the Grimm's evil stepparents's fairy tale books run the joint, from Skinderella to Snow Fright and her Seven Ninja Dwarves, and yes there is obviously Ghouldilocks with her three Scares.

It was actually more fun to see the characters being like the evil beings themselves than being rescued and reduced to damsels, Although Red Riding Blood did- oops. Retract that! ;)

She does deserve mention, the Crimson Queen, being able to wile her way into the kind heart of a certain vampire.

Anyways, if you're looking for something out of the ordinary, come and follow the gang on their adventure to this fluffy fluffy urban area where you're guaranteed a mystical time, and Bring Your Own Mirrors! :)
