      This is volume 1 of a graphic novel series based on the TV series of the same name. As both are written by the same people, I would assume that this story is canonical and meant to be an add-on to the TV series, though it is hard to tell exactly where this story would fit in timeline-wise. It's one problem, but not an insurmountable one. The story mostly resolves around the hunt for the Coins of Zakynthos, which can convey great power to anyone who holds them, which is why Nick Burkhardt and his [...]

      Grimm Volume 1 is a collection of comics based on the hit television series. When a tie-in is made, the questions that come to mind are, is it any good? Is it a money grab by a studio or is it written by someone who understands the characters and world of the show? I have seen a few episodes of the show, so I have a faint knowledge of the show and it’s characters. The book seems to ring through fine, while also offering a larger scope story than you would find in a typical episode. I don’t k [...]

      Grimm Vol. 1: The Coins of Zakynthos is a collection of six comic book collected into one graphic novel. This is a TV Tie-In with the current NBC show Grimm. Personally, Grimm is one of my favorite shows, filling the void on television that I have been waiting for since Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended its seven-year run in 2003. This makes total sense since both David Greenwalt (co-executive produce and then executive producer for Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jim Kouf (writer on the Buffy spinof [...]

      Like most people, I'm usually pretty skeptical about media tie ins, since most of the time, they're poorly rendered fanfic. Overall, this wasn't too bad.For the volume cover, they went with a photo and doctored it up nicely, just in case the casual comic book shop customer hadn't a clue that Grimm was a TV show. It's a lovely cover though, and happy that it features Nick's police partner, Hank. From the cover gallery at the end of this volume, there were a couple other good images they could've [...]

      I'm a fan of the TV show and my overwhelming impression of this book is that the writers have excised just about everything that makes it worth watching.I liked the opening chapter, which investigated an attack on a mixed-species marriage and the prejudices behind it. It was basically a mini-episode and it worked fine.However, the main story, regarding the quest to destroy the Coins, is terrible. It's dull, disjointed and predictable, and worse yet comes off as nothing more than an excuse to sho [...]

      Nick, Monroe, Hank. If that trio doesn’t sound familiar to you then you probably haven’t been watching NBC’s Grimm. This is a comic that is mainly for fans of the show though it does recap all of the most important things you need to know if you’re not already a fan of the show: Nick is a Grimm aka he sees the Wesen (fairy tale animal like creatures) in people that the rest of us don’t, Hank is his partner who knows about all of this, Monroe is one of the Wesen -- he just happens to be [...]

      I have to admit that I don't read a lot of graphic novels; however being a fan of the Grimm television show I was excited to check this one out. I think that Grimm Volume 1 is perfect for fans of the series and could also serve as a great way to introduce new fans to the show. The artwork is well done really capturing the nuances of the characters and bringing them to life. There are exciting backdrops as the characters travel the world, and the artwork does a great job at capturing the essence [...]

      I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.First I have to say that I don't normally read graphic novels, but since I really enjoy the Grimm show and I was having some Nick, Hank and Monroe (especially Monroe since he is hilarious) withdrawal I wanted to check it out. The stories are not part of the show, but maybe some of the characters we meet could be in the future. I sense a potential new love interest for Nick if Juliette gets bumped off from the show.The artwork is f [...]

      This particular graphic novel is based off of the Television show Grimm, although I’m not sure if this is a one off tale that wasn’t seen in the show, or a direct adaptation. The story was fun, and the humor that the show is known for was scattered throughout. The book may be somewhat confusing to those who are unfamiliar with the show, despite the attempt in the first segment to give the reader a crash course in the world.The illustrations were decent, and they did do a wonderful job of dep [...]

      Find this review and other reviews like it here: little-missreader/My ThoughtsI love the Grimm TV-show - even though I have not seen it in a while. But it is one of my favorites. I was not so impressed with the graphic novel though. I think the illustrations was poorly done, and I had a hard time seeing if some of the characters were a man or a woman. The story was fine, but I just felt that there was missing some background story sometimes. When I do not like a book, I have a hard time writing [...]

      I'm not a big fan of comic adaptations of TV shows, but this is pretty good one. I've watched just enough episodes of the show to be familiar with the characters and plot,and since the show's writers also wrote this volume, the situations, dialogue and tone all seem to be spot on. The story is fun and fast paced and doesn't skimp on humor. Where this gets knocked down a notch is on the art and layout. The art seems a bit wonky, sort of like the artist is an amateur trying to ape a professional l [...]

    • Quentin Wallace says:

      I'm a fan of the show, but honestly to me the graphic novel didn't quite match up. We are introduced to new (and hot and blonde) female grimm with a nice costume. They really should add that character to the show as she was the standout of the graphic novel. Also. they did take advantage of the unlimited budget of a comic to add exotic locations, more monsters, and more explosions. Even a cool boat chase and exploding helicopters which we may never see on the show. The main storyline about the c [...]

    • Jaimie says:

      I'm a huge fan of the Grimm tv series, so I'm glad that the graphic novel adaptation wasn't a let down. Instead of simply taking the plot of an episode (or arc) - the easy way out - the writers elaborated on the existing plot line to explain what happened to the Coins of Zakynthos. In the series we see Nick's mum Kelly drive off to dispose of them, but the rest of the story was a mystery until now. In the graphic novel we see Nick, Hank, and Munro travel to Europe, take on the Verrat, meet anoth [...]

      As a fan of the show I was lookign forward to reading the graphic novel, unsure whether it would be a graphic retelling of what had already been onscreen, whether it would take much loved characters further or be a money making exercise. This book takes established characters and fleshes them out in tales untold by the TV series whilst at the same time it adds tiny hints and backstories that I haven't picked up on yet on TV. This is a lovely book, the stories are accessible and you don't have to [...]

      I decided to give this a shot since the series has been on for a few years and thought I could use it as a quick way to see if it is something I want to try and catch up on. The setup is interesting and and I even after finishing it I think I would want to watch the series since I know there was so much that had to be left out of the graphic novel. A good read and you don't have to know anything about the series to start reading the book. Digital copy provided by the publisher through NetGalley

      Grimm, Volume 1: The Coins of ZakynthosGreenwalt, DavidNick and his friends are trying to find his mother in Europe after an adventure in Portland shows that she is in trouble. He also find that he is not the only legacy of the Grimm nature. This is a preview of the plot line of the new season of the Grimm, television show, this dynamic drawn master piece is a subliminal to the series. The image of Nick and Kelly are great similar to the actors, although i would rather have some of the other cha [...]

    • Mike Thomas says:

      This is fantastic! I am a big fan of the series Grimm, and when you read this graphic novel you can "hear" the characters voices as you read it, brilliant. The artwork is excellent, and the story is great, this comic book threw an extra female Grimm into the mix before the tv show did, outstanding. The only thing is, that the comic book didn't sell very well, so they are only publishing 12 issues. The other stories are a mix of one off stories and a big story to finish. Well worth checking out

    • Dawn says:

      This is a good book for fans of the television show. If you remember the storyline about the coins, this gives insight into the background and wraps things up as well. The writing does have the feel of the show, with plenty of action. I'm not sure if those who've never seen the show would get into this collection as readily, but there is a bit of back story to explain what's going on. And the artwork is pretty engaging, considering the non-human characters and all of the action sequences.

    • Pedro says:

      The First graphic novel was great, though I must say it's not perfect. I may be biased towards it, because I love the show so much. However, the style of the drawing isn't much to my appeal. Nonetheless, it doesn't hurt the book either.The story is more of the grimm we are used to and love, the characters as well, and there are some little secrets revealed that are well worth the time to read it. Very fun. Recommend it.

    • Rita says:

      Grimm Volume 1 is a pretty decent graphic novel. It doesn't really follow any specific storyline in the show, but it is a good story; and, if you are a fan of the show, then you will probably enjoy it. There's a lot of action and Grimm family secrets. I felt that the artwork could have been done better, but the writing makes up for it. *I received my copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    • Dalene says:

      This is a great comic that works well with the NBC series, "Grimm". "Grimm" follows the life of Nick as he learns the secrets of his families past. Nick is a Grimm, a human being who can see Wesen, supernatural creatures. The book is basically a wedding gone wrong and how Nick has to fix the problems.This comic book is a great addition to the show and I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the show.

    • Ian Williamson says:

      Brilliant addition to the Grimm canon. As the main story is written by the shows creators, it fits effortlessly with the actual show. The story was good, helping flesh out the relationship between Kelly and Nick. Each character keeps their individual voice from the series. Only downside is that the characters don't look like the actors in most panels which sometimes makes it difficult to work out who is talking. But such a highly enjoyable read, I'm looking forward to the second volume.

    • Sara Thompson says:

      Of all the graphic novels based on TV shows, I have to say this is the best one I have read. The characters are well drawn, the story line gels with the show. I love that it continued a part of a story without going so far off script. Great characterization. If you like the show, this is a perfect way to fill the gap while waiting for it to start up again.

    • Donna says:

      Flat.

    • Ricki says:

      This first collected volume of the Grimm comic is pretty faithful to the TV show. In fact, you might need to be a fan of the show to understand it.

    • David says:

      Posted my thoughts on Clever Beecleverbee/clever-blog/2013In general, this book was a waste of time.

    • Burgoo says:

      While the first story is fun and an interesting look into the world of the Wesen, for the most part this is a misstep.fedpeaches/2013/1
