Hello and welcome to the Rick Grimes fan site!

Where do I begin? Well, I will start by saying that I personally am not going to say too much on the subject of Cartoonist/Artist/Writer Rick Grimes’s strips/stories and what they mean to me, as I feel that my opinion is both irrelevant and blatantly obvious, as this tribute site is all the proof you need of that. I will however say (and stress) that this IS only a ‘fan’ site, though it does indeed have the blessing and participation of the Grimes himself, and should therefore be considered an, er…, “Official” fan site, or something… Anyway, I will let both the shrinee (?) and his work here speak for itself. One last thing; I am no “writer” of any sort, therefore please excuse the obvious and no doubt constant typos, grammatical errors and downright ineptness of my own writing on this site, thank you.

Now, the main reason behind the creation of this web site is so that fans and those curious about Grimes can now learn more about him and read more of his elusive, frustratingly underrated, and overlooked works.

As mentioned on the {former}* home/about page, you will find here the following sections/pages: this regularly updated (when possible) news/updates scroll; a  brief biography and comprehensive bibliography; a published works gallery (featuring published strips and stories, covers, etc.), a comments section (with memories/stories/comments from fellow artists and fans); a section for other works (ie unpublished or undeveloped strips/stories/art); three pages of other recommended cartoonists & painters, authors/writers, films and TV, and music worth checking out; a subscribe section; and finally, the usual assorted links, thanks/disclaimer, and e-mail pages.

With regards to the Rick Grimes artwork itself, I have personally been granted permission (via hand-written letter) to host Rick’s work as featured on the various pages of this non-profit fan site. Please see the thanks /disclaimer page for further information.

Thanks to the following people for their help and assistance (in various forms) with this site: Stephen R. Bissette, Rick Veitch, Jed Alexander, Sam Kujava, Ron Zalme, Mark Martin, Mike Sterling, Jay Kinney, Joe Kubert, Sir Real, Jim Wheelock, Mark Patterson, Sam Kujava and of course, to the man himself – Rick Grimes. Anyway… enjoy the site!  {–Ryan H. 1/’09}
