New from Image this month, critically acclaimed writer Kurtis J. Wiebe (Green Wake, Peter Panzerfaust) gives us GRIM LEAPER. Lou Collins is trapped in an seemingly endless loop. He keeps dying and coming back. But as a different person every time. Who are these people he becomes? Where do they go when he becomes them? Having no idea why this keeps happening he searches for a way to end this cycle and go into the light. And then she drops into his “life”, Ella is a kindred spirit and it’s love at first death!

It’s gruesome, it’s gory, it’s got a sick sense of humor. Mr. Santos treats us to some unbelievable images I mean c’mon! Can it get better than this?

Issue one was an interesting introduction to the character and the situation, I can’t wait to see how the story unfolds. This could’ve been a Quantum Leap rip-off, it’s not. I can’t imagine where Mr. Wiebe is taking us in this story but with the amazing things he’s been doing with Peter Panzerfaust I have to give him the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes I understand the people who only purchase trades. Waiting for next month sucks. Buy this book. 4.5 out of 5
