Grimjack was the creation of writer John Ostrander and artist Tim Truman first appearing as a backup in First Comic’s Starslayer. It soon proved popular enough to spin off into its own series, lasting 81 issues, though First’s bankruptcy prevented any new material from being published until 2005.

I have been reading comics for over 40 years now and Grimjack remains one of my favorite comic series of that era along with Sable, Nexus, Scout, American Flagg and others.

It’s sad that it’s so often ov

This volume collects the first seven issues of this great book from the early days of indie comics. It's a bizarre mashup of elements from detective noir, Mad Max, sci-fi and fantasy and exploitation films, and works beautifully. I used to read this comic in the eighties, and upon revisiting it so many years I find it hasn't lost its appeal, even if some its style may seem a tad dated now. Lots of fun.

Recommends it for: fans of garth ennis or judge dredd
i was going to recommend this to fans of dark, violent comics, or dark, violent fans of comics. works just as well either way.
i found this at the library, and got quite a kick out of re-reading these stories. i bought the comics as they came out in 83.. and was surprised at how much i still like them. bizarre characters, classic one-liners, ("you're about to wear your ass for a hat" topping that list), and some good Old West-style justice. a mix of elements from Judge Dredd (depressing overcrow

Ostander's Grimjack reminds me of another genre noir detective Glen Cook's Garrett. Both characters are war vets, friends with are honorable criminals and both driven by a code of personal honor. I love them both. It's been a long time, 20 or 30 years since I've read any Grimjack but this is a good place to start, an even better place is "Grimjack Omnibus, Volume 1" which includes these 1st 7 issues of the comic, plus 5 more along with his first appearance in Starslayer 10-17.
