    I know it can make sense to reuse imagery to save on time, but… He literally copy-pasted a piece of panel one to use in panel four. From an efficiency standpoint, I get it. I guess it just bugs me how obvious it is.

    The purple haired girl is probably space captain Sheena by JeynaElgren. Bleedman drew a few fan-arts of her.

    • 02/03/2018 at 6:30pm

      It’s actually Hit Girl.
      Why would Sheena need a knife to use on Dan Phantom to begin with?

    Hey Bleedman? If your going to have a bunch of cameos, could you slip Pan Pizza from Rebeltaxi in somewhere? He reviews old cartoons and video games from his space taxi, aka: the Rebeltaxi. Either Grim Tales or Power Puff Girls would work. You may never see this, but it would be a cool cameo in the right situation. (I mean, you put Zone-Tan as a normal news reporter, so why not?)

      Nope, case five, on the left. It is a simple silhouette but as most of those is very cool when you have the reference!

  • 01/24/2018 at 10:53am

    Can’t believe you guys don’t notice Hit Girl for some reason.

    And one thing that I realize with this page, is that it shows that not all the heroes died as an account in What About Mimi?

    I seriously just can’t with this comic anymore. I mean, what the actual hell is going on!? The comic had a coherent and consistent story in the beginning, now it’s like it came down with a hard case of ADD. What does this have to do with anything!? Tell a story already!

      I beg to disagree. Dan has arrived, blowing a hole in the Ghost Zone’s barrier, and then provokes a fight against all the bounty hunters in the town. With that hole in the barrier, as well as the fight keeping Eltros and his guards busy, Chi now has the perfect opportunity to enter the Ghost Zone and thus continue her quest to reach the Castle of Grim. In technical terms, these tidbits do qualify as storytelling. Bleedman simply has his own way of displaying it.

        So we had to suffer through %99 of the page being useless cameos and dialogue for %1 of plot? That’s so worth it.

          that is the point of all fanfics dude i am not surprised, i love it.

    been following this comic a long time. more and more lately, story seems disjointed. plot has no direction, nothing is resolved. complete storytelling breakdown. powerpuff comic might update slow but at least stays on track. grim tales isn’t doing this.

    this page highlights main problem – complete attention deficit toward comic’s previous values. nothing but cameos, jokes. progress stretching across years instead of weeks or months. needless characters heaped onto more needless characters. comic was about children of mandy and grim – now they barely get offhand mentions. sugarbits and zim already abandoned due to stagnation; grim tales following close behind.

      I do not see it so hard to understand, in my opinion, two main arcs and one secondary, the two important ones are: Chi trying to go to the rescue of Mimi in Grim Castle (possibly manipulated by HIM) the second are the problems of Jr With his sister by Mimi and the third the meeting of evil lords.

        Considering that GT updates more frequently than PPGD, I doubt GT will become stagnant anytime soon.

          update schedule sadly affected by ppgd editor illness. does not prevent comic remaining focused on its plot. grim tales problem a matter of short term gratification. lacks substance. entire plot with chi presently concerns cameos over progression. this page is classic example.
          comic could have proceeded much further if time was given to plot instead of meaningless side-inclusions. rook, lobo, jewel, all superficial. it has taken years to arrive at this point. previous chapters, previous writers more efficient. today’s readers more accepting of lower standards

            01/31/2018 at 2:51pm

            that is right Neobrab’ we are accepting a shitty plot because it is bleedman that drawned it

    I feel like this entire scene is just an excuse to throw in a whole bunch of cameos.

    • Sigment

      01/29/2018 at 10:04am

      I’m honestly feeling the same way about the comic as a whole.

    I’m not sure who the kid is on top of Phantom but he/she has hair just like Xelloss from Slayers 😀

  • MatDrac

    It’s clear that Bleedman is more DC fan than Marvel! Can someone tell me who the girl is on top of Danny?

    • Aros001

      In all fairness, DC has had more long lasting cartoons than Marvel, especially when it comes to those that were on around the same time as Billy and Mandy, Powerpuff Girls, and Danny Phantom. That’s not a shot at Marvel, of course, as I loved Spectacular Spider-Man and Avengers EMH as much as JLU and Teen Titans, but if Grim Tales is an amalgam of cartoon universes, DC simply has more opinions to pick from.

      And to answer your question, I have no idea who the girl is. She looks like she could be someone’s OC, but I could be very wrong about that.

      • MatDrac

        01/24/2018 at 9:33am

        DC has had more excited in his animated series, I do not discuss it, but during the time of Billy and Mandy, Powerpuff Girls and Danny Phantom there was nothing of Marvel that is already debatable, but maybe he could have used during this time any current or previous Marvel series to Billy and Mandy.

    Yes, Chi, go through the hole in the barrier. Finally meet Junior and Minnie. People will be much more invested in your section of the story when they feel it is plot relevant and interacting with the MAIN characters is most certainly that.

    • MatDrac

      What is on the other side of the barrier is the ghost zone, which I must cross to go to Grim Castle!

      • 4N1M3 FR34K

        01/24/2018 at 2:37pm

        However, navigating it will not be easy. Chi will need to have some sort of assistance to help her get through the Ghost Zone and thus reach the castle.

    Mmm ok so following the Christmas special which didn’t really feel like a Christmas special more of a side story we get this, and really this page is pretty… well pretty meh personally. It’s not exciting or interesting it’s just there. Lobo just getting owned is BS, was hoping to see them clash but apparently a guy that beat superman and was too much of a handful for the Devil and God and is immortal is no match for a ghost that got beaten by a teenager. The only thing that interest me is the purple haired girl on Dan’s head, well her and the fact that the Tick is there and is now apparently a bounty hunter ? Well ok whatever I’m sure it makes sense… to somebody. Anyway the purple haired girl… or boy ? The purple haird kid, the one mildly interesting thing in this page anybody know his or her name ?

    Oops I guess Sonic-Chu (I don’t know) only has the red electrical cheek pouches sometimes. It’s not in the first panel but it is in the second to last. XD

    Powdered Toast Man and The Tick. Never expected to see those two here, but I like it.
