Could be wrong though.
You guys have no idea. Grimjack is not a pirate hero -- he's more of an anti-hero. I guess I'd describe him as a cross between Snake Plissken and Rick Deckard. Ostrander and Truman made quite the team -- mixing post-apocalyptic sci-fi with hard-boiled film noir. Great action and pacing, I've always enjoyed Ostrander and Truman's tales as a result of getting into indie comics when I started with the '80s run of Ninja Turtle comics. You can't really judge Grimjack till you read it, so give it a shot.

Good...bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
