Reviews - What do customers think about The Legend of Grimjack, Book 2?

Graphic SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
Grimjack keeps getting drawn deeper and deeper into the political machinations of the city, and he thought he was mostly out of it. He does a job for one of the wealthy women, as well as a rock star.

He realises Mac Cabre, one of the Dancer's lieutenants is operating a sporting event, and discovers the Dancer himself is still kicking.

With the help of an outback biker cop who is pretty much as much of a hardarse as he is, in his own way, he helps put a stop to some police corruption.

All this has him butting heads with the shadowy head of Cynosure's security, Mayfair, a man he used to work for.

JACK IS BACK in The legend of GRIMJACK volume #2

The original HARD-BOILED barbarian is back. In the ever-shifting city of Cynosure, the nexus of all realities, this merc/detective series contains the private-eye anti-hero of pulp fiction mixed with the fantasy of Robert E. Howard. GRIMJACK aka John Gaunt, published in 1983-84, is re-presented here, without the backpage MUNDEN's BAR shorts, unfortunately.

THIS TRADE PAPERBACK COLLECTS THE REPRINTS OF THE MONTHLY GRIMJACK COMICS FROM OSTRANDER AND TRUMAN, now that the story arcs from the backpages of STARSLAYER have been reprinted in THE LEGEND of GRIMJACK (volume one), volume 2 begins with issue #1, "a SHADE of TRUTH" to issue #7 "SHADOWS of DOUBT"

In what was the premiere issue of the monthly series, "a Shade of Truth" finds Gaunt hanging out in his bar, Munden's, when a fancy-looking woman walks in. She used to be married to William Honesworth, Cynosure's finance minister. Their daughter Marcie recently killed herself, and she wants Gaunt to find the daughter's diary so she can learn why.
In "BLOOD SPORT," a kid wants to hire Gaunt for one DECICRED, the smallest coin in Cynosure. Gaunt takes the job because, he says, "NOBODY'D EVER OFFERED THEIR ENTIRE BANKROLL BEFORE." The kid's father is going to fight in the "Blood Sport", an illegal bare-knuckle deathmatch, to make some money. The kid wants Gaunt to stop him so he doesn't get killed. Gaunt takes the father's place in a match against a huge mutant called Butcherboy. This story reveals Gaunt's roots in the Pit, Cynosure's ghetto, and how got the nickname GRIMJACK. reminds Gaunt of his days as a slave in the Arena. There's some background info on the Dancer, who Gaunt knew in the Arena, and Dancer's lieutenant Mac Cabre appears as ringmaster.
In "BLOOD RELATIONS," Gaunt visits with BlacJacMac, Gaunt's best bud from the Arena, to tell him his father Mac Cabre is still alive. The two of them go check out Cabre's old headquarters, and find it has been re-occupied and now holds, among other things, a dozen womb tanks each holding a clone of the Butcherboy.
Then in "LEGACY" Grimjack goes Kevin Costner as he protects a comeback rock star from a psycho fan. This is the only weak story in the mix.
In "DEAD END" Gaunt's old TDP, Tran-Dimensional Police, partner Roscoe wants his help in investigating the theft of some Portable Reality Generators, one of the TDP's secret edges in fighting trans-dimensional crime. The trail leads out Eternity Road to TDP biker cop Jericho Noleski, who rescues Gaunt from a shootout at Dead End Station. "SHADOW COPS" and "SHADOWS of DOUBT" concludes the Cynosure cop conspiracy story arc.

The Trade paperback includes a gallery of the original cover art and a new cover by Tim Truman. The original art here isn't as strong as Truman's new work in GRIMJACK: KILLER INSTINCT. But the stories here define John Gaunt by introducing the key players, by sharing his childhood in the pit, outlining his time with Cynosure's police dept and his haunted history.
