    Bottom line(cause Stonecold said so): This is one of the most unique books on the shelves. It's a love story, mixed with vulgarity and grit, mixed with the darkest of humor, mixed with very real emotions, and all put together perfectly. In fact, it's one of maybe 5 comics on the stands that makes me think “Why didn't I think of that?” Ultimately, if it sounds even remotely interesting based on the blurbs and reviews you've read about it, it's completely worth owning. Not to mention, only four issues, so you don't have to worry about being lost in back-story or possibly losing track of the story if you come into harsh times moolah wise. Grim Leaper comes heavily recommended from this guy. I'm pointing my thumbs at my chest right now, BTW. Read Full Review

    The backup feature also manages to entertain, even if it has no real connection to the main story beyond offering a grim tale of romance and heartache. Ryan K. Lindsay's script provides an amusing parody of old-school romance comics that's juxtaposed against some very twisted imagery from Jordie Bellaire. If nothing else, this series illustrates the need for more romance-fueled stories in this industry. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 22, 2012

    In the middle of the series, "Grim Leaper" #2 is a story that's not for the squeamish. This comic hits some older concepts and ideas, but twists those notions just enough to present a story that seems fresh with characters that may not be growing towards being interesting, but their situation certainly is. I'm curious to see where this title goes and what eventually comes of Lou and Ella. Read Full Review

    The overall story has me interested for at least another issue, but it has a lot of work to do if I'm going to make it to four. This issue is an improvement over the first, but it didn't have me raise the Grim Leaper flag or add it to my pull box subscription. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jun 24, 2012

    Grim Leaper is currently trying to do too much with too little space. There's a smorgasbord of ideas here, but none of them have enough space to really shine. However, I'm hoping that, as this is a limited series, Wiebe will manage to wrap these loose threads back into the main narrative as we move forward. There was certainly a few hints that that might be the case. Now we just need some concrete action around those possibilities. Also: you should totally buy this to support Ryan K. Lindsay's story, because Ryan's a great guy! (also also: because he writes pretty good comics!) Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Jun 18, 2012

    This mini series is a riot and it makes sense to release it in a limited series. I love the fact that it’s only 4 issues, no long commitments that an unlimited series has & less money to spend. From Image Comics. Read Full Review
