There are stories that are fun, and then there are stories that are fun! Wait, I really didn’t make any clear demarcation there, but I’m stupid like that. This diatribe is meant to hammer home one point, Deal With A Demon is a whole lot of fun. It doesn’t surprise me that a story about Vilmarh Grahrk from the duo of John Ostrander and Jan Duursema would end up all kinds of fun, but sometimes the obvious needs to be stated. Deep storytelling isn’t always needed, as long as I am having fun with what I am reading then I will be happy.
The only real knock against Deal With A Demon is that it is pretty superfluous. As fun as it may be at the end of the day it doesn’t matter all that much. Still, from Villie’s syntax to the threats of a tiny Princess, Deal With A Demon is dripping with dry, sarcastic comedy. Deal With A Demon is to the point and as if it needs mentioning, is a well drawn piece. If you are looking for a Tales story to start with you can’t go wrong by picking Deal With A Demon.
