Grimm: The Warlock Issue 1 is the first of four issues in the spinoff mini series of the Grimm comic book series. It was published in December 2013 by Dynamite Comics and distributed on December 11, 2013 by Diamond.
Short synopsis: Nick and his partner Hank have to put a stop to a fixed basketball game that will keep the hometown team out of the playoffs. But the stakes are even higher when Nick finds a dangerous Wesen at the heart of the case.
Star basketball player and Löwen, Ulysses Grant asks his coach Mike Griffin (Hank's uncle) to bring Nick and Hank in to save the basketball game. Ulysses has been told that if he plays the game, his mother dies at the hands of fellow Löwen Regis Cutler. Nick studies a bit with Grimm's Guide to Combat and the Martial Arts before challenging Cutler to a Holmgäng (trial by combat). He uses his newfound knowledge to his advantage to stall and arrest Cutler, thereby saving both the hostage mother and the game. A shady figure is shown on the phone at the end, showing disappointment that the community is at peace again and making plans to eliminate Nick.
