Grimm: The Warlock, The TV Spinoff By Jai Nitz And José Malaga


Grimm: The Warlock is a new comic book mini-series from Dynamite, spinning off their  NBCUniversal licence for the TV show, written by Jai Nitz and drawn by José Malaga, launching in December.

Announced at Baltimore Comic Con, The Warlock focuses on an investigation by the homicide detectives Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin. Something about a fixed basketball game in Portland and a shape-shifter in the heart of it.

Nitz is quoted as saying;

"I pitched The Warlock to accentuate the unique storytelling techniques of comics and mix them with the real settings in Portland. I wanted to show parts of Portland that would be impossible to film for the show for logistical reasons, but would be amazing in the comic and the mythos in general.  I wanted to capture some of the dark grandeur of the show along with the humor of the actors in particular.  I love the way they blend horror and comedy with subtle acting and wanted that to come through in the comic.  I also wanted to show some incredible action that might be too much for even the most experienced stuntman.  That's the fun of comics.  We don't have a special effects budget or limit.  We can do anything you can imagine with pencil and paper.  It's fun to push the limits of an already established show on the page."
