The four realms have fallen and an Age of Darkness has arrived.
The Dark Queen begins her reign after merging the realms with
Earth. The survivors must band together in order to defeat her
and restore order. But with several Realm Knights dead and the
Grimm Universe thrown into chaos, can Sela and her remaining
team stand against the Dark Queen and her army?

PREVIOUSLY IN REALM WAR…
Though Sela wanted to stay and fight alongside Shang against
the Dark Queen’s attack, she made the choice to leave in the
hopes of acquiring a weapon powerful enough to end her mortal
enemy. But the possible loss of her mentor leaves Sela shaken.
Meanwhile, the Dark One continues setting up his betrayal of the
Dark Queen. And with Venus secured as his second in command,
he knows he must strike soon.

We had a chance to ask writer Erica J Heflin about this issue, about Cheshire, and what famous actor “personifies” him…
Erica: Truth be told, he’s my favorite character to write. In a sense, it’s like writing a villain, where you have this set of motivations that are both foreign to you as a person, but compelling for that very reason. An actor that could carry the dark gravity required for Cheshire, while balancing that smirk-ridden wit? I’d love to go with an 80s era Lance Henriksen (an answer admittedly colored by a long-standing crush). I’d need an actor with a weighty voice, who can deliver lines with both the coy ambivalence and dark gravity required for Cheshire. And that subtle tinge of glee! He’s definitely a character where a bit of an inflection shift could change the whole meaning behind his words.
