Templesmith Grimm Cover
Dwight MacPherson wrote to let me know a new episode of the Grimm comic books is on its way. He sent along this little blurb:
EPISODE 2: LOVE HURTS
Chaos ensues as Grimm enters the romantic comic book world! Join Larry and Sally as they struggle to survive a flesh-craving duck attack, a senile taxicab driver and an army of puppies to be together. Will true love be enough to conquer Grimm? I wouldnâ€™t bet on it!
Issue 2 will be available in comic shops in the United States in June.
If fans want to pre-order the book, they can do so through their local comic shops, or through online services like mycomicshop.com, twaw.com or mailordercomics.com.
I’ve read through the final book – and had a few good laughs. The content continues to do a great job of skewering well-established narrative themes. Something we all know Grimm is great at in the fairytale world. Fun to see him doing his thing inside (literally) the pages of the comic world.
Cool news out of California: Grimm is coming to comics! From the article on MSNBC, “SAN DIEGO, CA – Celebrated game designer American McGee’s Grimm, an episodic videogame that debuted on GameTap, offers gamers the chance to create darkness across traditionally lighter fairy tales. And now Grimm, the game’s macabre dwarf who wreaks havoc on these fairy-tale tableaus, will be unleashed in a new comic book series coming from IDW Publishing in April 2009.”
The comics are being written by Dwight MacPherson and illustrated by Grant Bond. The work I’ve seen from the guys so far is really impressive, so I’m expecting (as you should) these comics to be a lot of fun.
The MSNBC article goes on to describe the theme of the comics, which, “will find Grimm invading — and forever changing — the worlds of romance comics, westerns, teenage high-school comics, and anthropomorphic comics. In each issue, Bond’s art style will reflect the archetypal art form of these traditional universes before Grimm’s dark influence fully takes over the comic.”
