Honestly? I have absolutely no idea what attracted me to this one. It may have been the name, thinking that a cross between one of the oceans deadliest creatures AND lands most vicious predators would somehow be the greatest thing I had ever witnessed. It may also have been the fact that the cover really revealed NOTHING about the story. Either way I decided to pick up the Image Comic release Grizzlyshark. Written, drawn, and lettered by the same individual, Ryan Ottley which gained a crap tonne of respect from me, as it is hard enough to do one of those, but to do all of them yourself takes years upon years of practice.
The comic itself is all over the place, sometimes in a good way, and sometimes so confusing I can not figure my ass from my elbow, but honestly it was a good change from the norm in comics. Grizzlyshark is a mind explosion of pointless action, cliched plot lines, and an overused ability to create a completely random set of events into play, all while convincing the reader that he needs to keep going. It felt like a story Deadpool would have written, and for that I kept on going.
