The Crow is a comic book series created by James O’Barr. The series was originally written by O’Barr as a means of getting over his girlfriend’s death at the hands of a drunk driver. It was later published in 1989, and became an underground success, with some movie studios seeking the rights to adapt it to film. It was adapted into a film in 1994 starring Brandon Lee, spawned three sequels, and a television series have also been made. The Crow has been translated into almost a dozen languages and has sold over a quarter-million copies world wide.
The first four issues were published by Caliber in 1989, and are collectors items now, because they are very hard to find. Tundra publishing released the conclusion in 1992 and Kitchen Sink Press followed with the graphic novel containing a more complete story with previously unpublished material. Definitely a must own for any true fan of The Crow.
