“…a razor cutting style that energizes the subject matter, infusing WW2 era characters with a present day energy. Great stuff!” – DARICK ROBERTSON, artist and co-creator of Transmetropolitan and The Boys.
“From the muddy battlefields of France to the haunted ruins of modern-day, Chechnya, “Grunts”, pulls no punches when dealing with the hardcore violence of war. Perfectly marrying action, fantasy, horror and sc-fi into one wonderfully, dark and very original package with superb art (it’s good to see an M1 Garand, actually looking like an M1 Garand), and flawless writing, “Grunts” is like a bayonet to the gut, but one that leaves a smile on your face and salivating for the next attack.” – BILLY TUCCI, creator of SHI and writer/artist on Sgt. Rock
