March 31, 2005 - Snap Judgments says GJ:KI #3 Best of the week! - Snap Judgments: "You know, despite having read every issue published of Grimjack, I just never get tired of him kicking the crap out of a bunch of monsters. This issue sees Gaunt and his new protege/lover/possible trouble ahead Jo Chaney facing off with monstrous vampires in a vampire club, which sounds potentially kind of old hat but isn't thanks to the perfect execution by Ostrander and Truman..."

Paperback Reader gives GrimJack: Killer Instinct #1 an A!

Paperback Reader : Review of Grimjack: Killer Instinct #1

Scott Nelson writes: "I haven't read a Grimjack book in probably 8 years. Of course, even back then the handfull of books I'd read were already older back issues that I'd stumbled across. Well, Grimjack's back! And the first issue of this new series will not disappoint."

CBR Pipeline reviews Legend Of GrimJack #1

Comic Book Resources - Comic Book News, Reviews and Commentary - Updated Daily!

Augie DeBlieck Jr. writes "I am new to GRIMJACK.... Based on SUICIDE SQUAD, THE SPECTRE, and THE KENTS, I eagerly gave Ostrander a chance with his own character. Happily, it didn't take long to be drawn into the world and made an instant fan."

From the Front Lines of the stores

Mike Sterling's Progressive Ruin

Grimjack: Killer Instinct #1 - argh, that $3.99 price point! That's okay, though, as it's a pleasure and a half to finally get Grimjack back on the stands again. While I'm anxious to see the story pick up from where it left off at the end of the First Comics' run all those years ago, I realize that's probably not the best place to start up a new GJ series. However, this "prequel" series is a lot of fun, and beautifully drawn by Tim Truman.

Legend of Grimjack Vol. 1 - we already sold out of it.

Tony Isabella gives GJ:KI #1 5 out of 5 Tonys

World Famous Comics >> Tony's Online Tips - Tony Isabella, Oct 25, 2004

Tony Isabella writes, "You can go home again.

I'm not sure why you would *want* to go home again if home is the multi-dimensional city of Cynosure - "multi-dimensional" can be translated here as "many interesting and painful ways to die" - but you *can* go back. Which is exactly what John Gaunt, writer John Ostrander, artist Timothy Truman, and editor Mike Gold are doing... GRIMJACK: KILLER INSTINCT #1 gets the full five Tonys."

Snap Judgements gives GJ:KI #1 10 out of 10 and Best of the Week! - Snap Judgments

Randy Lander writes, "I hadn't realized how much I had missed John Gaunt until I started paging through this return to form by his original creators, John Ostrander and Tim Truman. I was a little nervous... Ostrander had lost none of his steam in recent years, and Truman had actually gotten better with each new project, but still... how many creators have we seen trying to return to the site of old glories only to make us think maybe those old glories were, uh, not quite so glorious? I needn't have worried. Not only is GrimJack: Killer Instinct every bit as good as the older GrimJack stories, a return to form for the character and his creators, but it walks that exceptionally difficult line between being a project to welcome back the readers who have been pining for a return and remaining accessible to those who have at best only heard the name GrimJack bantered around as "one of those great series someone should bring back someday." Someday is today, someone is IDW and great still describes GrimJack."

Critiques on Infinite Earths gives GJ: KI #1 8 out of 10 - Critiques on Infinite Earths

Don MacPherson says, "I can see now why I heard such good things about GrimJack. It's no deep examination of the human spirit or anything, just a cynical, dark action story with a gritty but entertaining edge."
