This review is from: Hellbrandt Grimm: Graphic Novel Books 1-3 (Warhammer) (Paperback)
Although the same with many of the graphic novels produced by black library, Hellbrandt grimm starts off fairly slowly with a series of unconnected adventures. Fortunately these are well written, although a little samey throughout. The biggest problem is that the character of grimm is pretty much flat, he reminds me a bit of judge dredd.
Most of the tales are told from a narrators point of view, usually someone who has come into contact with grimm.
Once the stories start to link together the book becomes so much better, the writing between the episodes doesnt let the pace fall away.
Also there is a section at the back with stories about Grimm's rival Liliana Falcone, which are also well written and drawn. She is a tilean assasin, plying her trade with brains as well as brawn.
There is also a one off strip putting grimm into the 40k universe, as an inquisitor fighting a genestealer cult. This is pretty much a gimmick and has no real substance to it, but a nice little extra all the same even if just for the art.
Anyone interested in outlaw life in the warhammer world will enjoy this
