Grimwood Crossing is a six-issue mini series that is the product of two Kickstarter campaigns (Vol. 1 and Vol. 2) and 327 backers. Now we are back to bring a massive 200 page collection full of the monster hunting adventures of the Sheriff and his young deputy, Bobby.  This is the perfect time for new readers to pick up Grimwood Crossing. Returning backers get a free print out of the Grimwood Crossing Map if they choose a physical reward.

For the first time, the entire collection of Grimwood Crossing is being compiled in one 200-page omnibus with tons of new content. 

The Grimwood Crossing Omnibus includes:

  • Grimwood Crossing Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 (issues #1-6)
  • A brand new 2-page “after credits” epilogue scene
  • Grimwood Crossing: The Horde - an 8-page short story
  • Grimwood Crossing: Frontier Smart - a 4-page short story
  • Grimwood Crossing: Book Smart - an 8-page short story
  • A bestiary detailing every monster in the grim old west with drawings. Written by Deputy Bobby
  • William's Apprenticeship Journal - a new story told in the form of Sheriff Bill's journal from when he was an apprentice.

 We Hit $4k! Every backer gets a free digital copy of Tabi No Hana!

 If We Hit $5k Every Physical Reward Comes With A Bookmark!

Grimwood Crossing is the biggest town in the grim old west. Vampires, Werewolves, and Zombies are part of the everyday struggle for the townsfolk. That's why Grimwood's Sheriff also has the added job title of monster hunter. It's a dangerous job, so a replacement must always be arranged. With the help of his young, scat-talking apprentice, the Sheriff must fend off a vengeful outlaw with demonic powers. 

Omnibus Stories

In the Omnibus Extras, follow Bobby as he furthers his education towards being a monster hunting sheriff, and as he learns of the tragic details of the current Sheriff's own apprenticeship.

The Horde is an 8-page short story where Bobby must deal with a massive horde on its way into town, without the help of the Sheriff. Nothing will ever be the same.

Frontier Smart is a 4-page short story where Bobby learns the dangers of being unprepared for a hunt, while trying to fight the ghost of a witch.

Book Smart is an 8-page short story that follows Bobby and the Sheriff as they hunt down an unknown monster.  They must turn to the Sheriff's personal library to find answers.

Bobby's Bestiary is a record of all the monsters Bobby has faced, or learned about, over the course of his apprenticeship. The Bestiary comes complete with detailed drawings and notes.

William's Apprenticeship Journal is available to read in the Omnibus. When the Sheriff was an apprentice, he was known as little William. William's own Sheriff mentor had him keep a journal. After reading the journal, Bobby sees why the Sheriff kept it in a forgotten box decades ago.

Epilogue- This is a surprise.

Bobby is a former bandit and the newest in a long line of Grimwood apprentices. It's a dangerous position and it takes a dangerous kid to survive the job that countless others couldn't. After a bad first impression, and second impression, the townsfolk have trouble trusting him. Even though he won't admit it, Bobby wants to earn their trust. 

In the Omnibus, Bobby continues his education towards being the monster hunting sheriff of Grimwood Crossing. He learns some harsh lessons about relying too much on his brawn and not on his brains.

The Sheriff is the respected lawman of Grimwood and he has been for way too long. Sometimes he feels more like a babysitter. He should have retired decades ago but he can't seem to keep an apprentice alive. 

In the Omnibus, the Sheriff's own education is uncovered, including all its tragic details. In the present day, he seems to be more at ease with trusting Bobby.
