    Why did Bleed completely retcon Minnie for? I always thought that the best part of her character stemmed from her being the exact opposite of her mother, and yet he threw away a perfectly good character design for a Mandy clone? IMO I think he should have just kept Minnie dead instead of going through the whole reincarnation crap, that way Junior could have gotten some much needed character development and her sacrifice for her brother would have been more dramatic then her just coming back to life as a mutilated corpse forced to carry on even further due to her brother’s selfishness of not letting her rest in peace. Junior is by far the worst character in the whole comic.

      what reaper powers. grim has no powers. hes not grims son. he has nothing. why do you think he hated her in the first place. she showed him up at everything. everyone who he thought cared about him abandoned him for minnie. and the only people who do care about him are jeff and mimi. if you read back in seven deadly sins and a few chapters before and after it explains clearly how much of a scumbag minnie is.

      • KotoKoi13

        05/14/2017 at 1:12pm

        But if you also re-read the comic in the beginning to end of the Halloween Town disaster, you would realize that all those scumbag complaints against Minnie were based off of Juniors jealous bias. And if you actually pay attention, the only reason why Minnie does so many amazing things and seemingly outshines Junior in almost everything was because she’s been trying to get HIS attention. Go back to the comic page where Minnie was under the rage spell under HIM, and notice how she saids something around the lines of “Why can’t you love me? I do all these things for you. What will it take to get your attention?” I will like to emphasize “WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO GET YOUR ATTENTION?”

    Good day!

    Long time Reader (since May 2006) and a follower on DA. My first time making a comment on these boards, but I just wanted to say, “Thank You all” for what you do! It’s not easy to storyboard, draw, color, and edit as many stories as you do… Plus, additional art pieces and the likes! It’s super easy for for us all to just simply read a comic and (for some of us) to nitpick or offer our “personal critiques”. However, for you all whom do this all while trying to hold down/make careers, have families, and generally try to live your lives: This is a huge sacrifice of time an energy that I think get’s seldom remembered by many within the online community. SO, I just wanted to say, sincerely, that I appreciate the hard work you put in: From the artwork and Character designs to the scripting and storyboard! It really means alot to me as a fan!

    I’ll add (on my own “Personal Note”) that I really enjoy the story line and, truthfully, don’t feel lost or misplaced anywhere within the story! Certainly, it is to notice that many of the characters have under went changes between the end of the “Rescue Mini” Arch and the current place of the current arch. However, for me, it has been both exciting and interesting to see! As someone else whom writes stories on a weekly/biweekly level (Writer since Elementary School, Role-player, and Dungeon Master for the last 4+years): I have really enjoyed everything I’ve read! And, as an amateur artist: I’ve always admired the art style (and it’s evolution), too! So, once again, I thank you all (Bleed man and the staff behind Grim tales, all of the other comic artists/Writers/staff, and the site staff itself) for all of your hard work and look forward to continuing my reading in further chapters on this site.

    God bless you all and have an awesome rest of the week!

    So.. I know you’re all tired of me. If this comment is noticed, I will never leave a comment here again. I just want to ask.. No jokes, no promotions for anything, no cynicism. Just straight up, man to man (or, men and women depending on if anyone reads this).. What is going on here? I mean, at what point are we in this story? We have seen pages, full of Chi, the story about Grim’s dad, and now this. It feels.. Random. Out of order. I have made my complaints in the past. I have said things, I am not proud of. I have attempted to draw attention to my AU. But, I have grown past this. I have decided to let time take it course.

    However, I feel I should say something. I’ll allow disagreement, but I won’t just sit by. I will give this final comment, and return to what I was doing, before I got an account here. While I much prefer Junior and Minnie, I feel we must get to the point. The point that, we have seen multiple conflicts. Conflicts, while interesting, almost see no resolution,and replaced by other conflicts, almost out of nowhere, that are only seen for one to two pages. New characters are introduced, only to disappear for a long amount of time. I may be an amateur writer myself, but I do see the problem with these decisions. I am no longer interested in, competition with Bleedman over ‘who’s better.’ It’s pointless. But, I, as an individual human being, will place my opinion. I like Grim Tales. I honestly do. I’ve read since the beginning, and I’m eager to see the continuation. However, I feel as though.. It has lost something over the years. It has some good changes, as all things do. It is not perfect, nothing is. However, while I can not place my finger on it.. It feels as though, since we first saw Aku (who I will admit I was happy to see), the story has lost something. I can’t bring that something back. But, the most I can do is speak my mind, and take what I get. I can do that. I may be no Bleedman, but I feel my AU is going well. I won’t compete, but I will say this. I read the comment section. I read what my readers like, don’t like, want to see, and don’t want to see. I must ask.. Am I the only one. Who notices such things?

    This will be, my final comment on this website.

      Honestly this comic went down the drain the moment Chi was introduced. Ask Griddles all about that.
      This comic should have ended years ago but I feel like it’s being kept alive just so Bleed has some fap material over quiet, super smart, super overpowered and kinda bratty little girls (No seriously look at all his comics you find this trend e v e r y w h e r e)

      Might I ask where to find your AU? I’m a little curious.

    i feel that all the good plot was left behind all the way back to down bellow. i mean, the plot right now does not seem as solid or as interesting as before. it is not terrible but it is very lacky. i miss how well jr and minne got allong. now it seems as if she hates him and all those feelings she has for jr are irrelevant now. not that jr is doing any better. sometimes i forget that jr and minnie are just kids, not even pre teens. like 12 year olds.

    To be honest Minnie isn’t in the wrong here, she clearly knows what’s up and that they could use her as a pawn but something tells me HIM won’t really care what happens to his daughter.
    Also I always wondered who would voice Jr. and Minnie if this ever was a show im just curious.

            Junior’s Nergal half: Mordecai from Regular Show

            Mimi would be quite irrelevant in this matter, and you all know that reason.

    I LIKE!!
    This is getting interesting; it’s kind of sad, but Minnie is actually trying to help. In her own, confused, evil way. She truly believes what she is saying will prove to Junior her opinions, she just doesn’t understand that that’s not how emotions work. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was crying on the inside, right now.
    (Also, I noticed that Junior’s claws are making marks into the table. Very nice attention to detail).

    Guys, I will say this once. If you are reading this comic even though it’s ‘gone to shit’, you have no right to complain. Don’t like, don’t read. Stop whining about it though! Because you’re clearly still here. Honestly, being bratty is just pathetic and annoying so do stop. (Eye roll)

    • Aros001

      05/12/2017 at 6:50am

      While I agree there are certainly some trolls on this site, most of those complaining have been longtime readers of the comic, with one even being a former writer/editor for it. So while they can go overboard with their complaints, I think they do have some valid criticisms (and this is coming from a guy who still likes it overall (though it does clearly have problems)).

        05/12/2017 at 4:24pm

        While reading the comments is supposed to be part of Bleed’s responsibilities, I can see a potential consequence. Taking into account that Griddles has said a good few times before that Bleed is hotheaded, then if Bleedman did read all the comments, then it is quite likely that he would go ape-shit on everyone who has been badmouthing him and his work.

        • 4N1M3 FR34K

          05/12/2017 at 4:25pm

          I’m not saying that Bleed should continue to ignore the comments, but I’m explaining this is a “what if” type of scenario.

        • Skully

            Exactly. He did it before on Deviantart and got banned for it. He knows it could happen again, so he decided to shy away. All because he can’t suck it up and be civil towards the haters.

    I’m getting hooked to this comic, it may have some cringey stuff in it but the characters such as Grim, Mandy, Minnie, and Junior are really interesting in a way that makes you want to see how one character is going to react in situations like these (seeing as how Mandy and Grim are characters that some people know their characteristics, and Minnie and Junior as characters that make people want to see if they will act like one of their parents)

    1. Mimi basically has no wrists anymore. How exactly is Minnie planning on attaching her to the rack (looks a drawing closer and where the chains are vis her limbs) OMG is she planning to drive HOOKS through her arms and legs a la Pinhead?

    2. Either Bleed forgot to draw in Minnie’s thumbnail or/and Minnie has taken off her nail polish (her thumb is too turned toward us for the nail to be totally out of image.)

    • Megadon

      05/11/2017 at 11:23pm

      1. A la pinhead is pretty close since there are iron spikes and hooks that can easily go through bone.

      2. The thumb thing. I don’t know. Only two answers for that is artistic oversight or being at an angle where we can’t see it. The drawing hand pose she’s taking is a standard for most who are drawing but have their attention divided between multiple things. And at said pose it is hard and almost impossible to see the thumb from a right angle.

  • Aros001

    05/11/2017 at 9:06pm

    I think it’s interesting that it’s badmouthing Jeff that pushes Junior too far. I suppose you can look at it like since Mimi is in the castle with them, Junior can at least try and help her. But Jeff is far out of his reach and Junior blames himself personally for Jeff’s situation, since Jeff only betrayed HIM for Junior’s sake and Mimi only betrayed HIM for Jeff’s sake. Obviously Minnie is only say this to get a rise out of Junior since her more Mandy like nature is not being held back anymore, but it is an interesting thing to think about.

    Also, side question I’d like to ask Griddles if he happens to see this: since Jeff mentioned he only betrayed Junior because HIM promised him his father’s love, was there a plan to bring Billy into all of this or was that deal just a means to an end to help the story move forward and get the characters to meet? It’s fine if it is but I’m just curious.

      This is getting interesting. It’s kind of sad, but Minnie IS trying to help Junior. Minnie is dealing with all kind of new emotions right now; jealousy, possessiveness, AND her mother told her that she needs to have a bold approach. She doesn’t know how to respond to all these new things, so she’s using the only Role Model she has for this: Her Mother. Which explains why she’s being so hostile and sarcastic. She’s never had to actually FIGHT anyone over her brother before. Earlier, she was the ONLY person who loved him; everyone else either hated him, or didn’t care. But now that she has competition for the first time in her life, she doesn’t know what to think. So she uses her Mother as an example and decides to try to kill Mimi as a rival. Even now, in this scene with Junior and Minnie, she’s pleading with him. She’s BEGGING him to see things from her perspective, but she’s trying to keep this act of being heartless because that’s what her mother told her to do. I think She’s crying on the inside. I think she’s heartbroken and doesn’t know how to deal with it. And that makes me so sad to think about-
      She’s so desperate for her brothers affections, and when she finally gets them, another girl takes them away from her.

      Skully, I’m not gonna lie or sugar coat this, I really love this comic, not unironically or anything like that, I like the comic and I know people don’t like it, I actually know someone who outright hates it, but it has a special place in my heart and it offers an interesting read and funny storylines. I even like some of the characters. Don’t get me wrong, there are some parts in the comic that make me shake my head. Like how they underuse Him’s daughter when she actually could have a story focused on her compared to what they did, I think having that part where she posted dirty pictures online was completely pointless, and the story line focusing on Aku’s daughter is so uninteresting for two reasons 1. That girl is not a well-written character; it comes off like she’s supposed to be this bratty princess who shows she can have a soft side to her, but it only comes off like she’s this stuck-up princess who only cares about one person and is annoying and 2. Her story line adds nothing to the current conflict! She’s supposed to be rescuing His’s daughter, but we have yet to see her even get to the castle! Lol, I know I’m rambling, just wanted to show I’m not some bias fangirl, either way, I think it’s an okay comic and I hope my opinion doesn’t make me look like a bad person. I know it’s not a great comic, by any means, but it’s and interesting read. 🙂

      It’s funny, if I was younger I would’ve cursed you out, but I can agree, when he used the world ‘Triggered’ at the end, I just giggled.
