Review: Grind By Joe Palmer

Set in a futuristic major city, GRIND is a self contained complete story about two rival couriers competing to retrieve a package. As they race through the streets on roller skates, the competition escalates.

Joe Palmer is a British comic book artist living in London, UK.

 

The first thing that caught my eye was the amazing art – Joe’s art in 2000 AD was excellent, and here, with the vibrant colour it really pops!

Yes it’s a sci-fi setting, there are robots and a police force to match, but this is a much closer sci-fi to now than a lot of the other Sci-Fi comics. That really brings the story and the comedy home.
Generally this is a fast paced story and the art tells the story as well as the words. There are twists and turns throughout, and this really keeps you guessing until near the end!
I really enjoy the art, there are some really distinctive effects, with a fun world and a nice build. The layouts and the backgrounds of the story are well done, with some nice commentary on office banter to match!

Speeding through the streets as couriers on roller blades really appealed to me, I don’t know if it’s my age, but it fit nicely in the setting – as well as the moves they make.

This is an excellent comedy read, which made me smile throughout. There is also a good amount of heart, which makes it a more human read and an enjoyable experience!

Worth checking out!
