May 30 was a "Fifth Wednesday," giving comics readers an extra week in May to pick up new comics. They — and comics retailers — responded by snapping up the debut of the new Shadowline miniseries GRIM LEAPER by Kurtis J. Wiebe (PETER PANZERFAUST, DEBRIS) and Aluisio Santos.
The second printing of GRIM LEAPER #1 (APR128252), which has already received a number of very favorable reviews, will be in stores on June 27, the same day as GRIM LEAPER #2.

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.
