Portland, Wu is a graphic novel based on the television series, and it is a spinoff of the Grimm comic book series. It is divided into two sections: "It's Portland, Wu" and "Renard's Reckoning."

Plot SynopsisEdit

It's Portland, Wu: A missing girl. A femme fatale. A dark family secret. What starts as an unofficial investigation into his neighbor's disappearance drags Sgt. Wu deep into a world of Wesen intrigue. In the vein of classic film noir tales, Wu unravels a case that could not only cost him his job, but his life.

Renard's Reckoning: Portland. A city full of natural beauty and unnatural danger. A dark rose built on a secret foundation of Wessen [sic] corruption...but not any more [sic]. Not if rookie Police Officer Sean Renard has anything to say about it! Witness the rise of Captain Renard, as he wrestles for control with a Wesen crime boss in the past, and the personal sacrifices he must make in the present to maintain control of his city.

SummaryEdit

It's Portland, WuEdit

Wu is asked to perform an off-the-books investigation of the disappearance of Rose Erthal, daughter of a wealthy family in Portland. Suspicious of Rose's boyfriend Spencer Rutherford, the son of a rivaling wealthy family, he follows him to a Wesen club. Wu witnesses the death of Spence by a surprise bear attack, which turns out to be Rose in full Jägerbar woge. Wu ends up in the middle of a huge tangle of problems, including a confiscated badge, three Jägerbars at each other's throats, a mission to expose upper-class crimes, and a vengeful mother who adds him to her hit list.

Renard's ReckoningEdit

Tribune reporter and cryptomaniac Burt Summers, a former friend of Sean Renard, begins coming dangerously close to revealing Wesen to the world. Renard is forced to do something about this. Afterward, he reflects on his early years when he and Burt risked everything to solve a case that made Renard the most respected officer in the precinct.
