Issue 8 is the eighth issue of volume 1 of the Grimm comics series and the third issue of Volume 2: Bloodlines. It was published in December 2013 by Dynamite Comics and distributed on December 18, 2013 by Diamond.
Short synopsis: We flashback to Aunt Marie as she spends her final Christmas battling the cancer that is rapidly ravaging her body while a sinister force battles for her soul. Face to face with her mortality, she reflects on her own choices as a Grimm and learns that not everything is jolly during the holidays.
While burgling the home of a slain Spinnetod, Marie steals her rare Silk of Harmonia. This attracts the attention of the reaper, Hulda. Marie goes in for her chemo treatment, fearing what will happen to her. Donna, who is also receiving chemo treatments, has a daughter and two grandchildren visiting her. Marie is visited by a friendly man named Thomas, who takes her out for a free dinner. Hulda and four Hundjägers take Thomas hostage. Thomas reveals that he, too, was after the silk, and Marie defeats all but Hulda, who escapes. She manages to hold onto the silk. At her next chemo treatment, she realizes it's time to start living a fuller life so she won't regret dying soon.
