Let me start this off by saying how excited I am to read this. This concept is so brilliant that I can see a movie adaption in the very near future. Not only is the concept truly unique, but the intertwining love story is just icing on the cake. It is hard to find a worthy love story in comics these days, but I think Image has really got something great on their hands. I will 100 percent be reviewing this, as I am more excited for this comic than any other title in 2012. Want to know more about Grim Leaper? Check out the press release below!
SHADOWLINE TAKES A LEAPGRIM LEAPER, new series from PETER PANZERFAUST creator in MayAt the beginning of the new Image Comics series GRIM LEAPER, Lou Collins has died thirteen times, and he can be sure that grisly death #14 is just around the corner. This may seem like a weird way to find romance, but that’s just what Kurtis J. Wiebe (PETER PANZERFAUST, GREEN WAKE) has in store for Lou in his new series debuting in May, drawn by Aluisio Santos.Every time he dies, Lou jumps into a stranger’s body, and just as he’s learning something about his new host, another gruesome accident sends him leaping to the next one. Lou wants to escape the violent cycle and find eternal rest — that is, until he meets another “leaper” named Ella.“This is the gory love story you’ve been waiting for, a buckets of blood romantic comedy for the ages,” said writer Wiebe.“Grim Leaper is a story about that person you’ve always wanted to date but never had the chance to,” added Santos. “Except now your bad luck is a killer.”GRIM LEAPER #1 (MAR120418), published under Image Comics Shadowline imprint, will be in stores on May 30. It’s a full-color comic book for $3.50. It is available for pre-order now in the March issue of Previews.
