D. B. Cooper is infamous for jumping out of a plane in 1971 with about $200,000 dollars. At least that is the story we think we know. In this graphic novel, Brian Churilla, we see that perhaps Cooper was actually used by the CIA as an inter-dimensional traveler and assassin.
Cooper has been trained to travel into the Grit, a world filled with strange inter-dimensional monsters, and a red teddy bear named Lee. He is also in this land to try to find his daughter Donna, who was taken from him. The monsters he kills with his katana in this dimension correlate to actual enemy spies in Russia that die in unexpectedly gruesome ways. There is also a counter spy who is hunting him down. This leads to some nice red herrings and paranoia throughout the story.
Story and art by Brian Churilla is quite good. The monsters in the Grit are the stuff of nightmares, and when Cooper kills one, a Soviet spy suddenly dies in a rather gruesome way. It's a strange story, but compared to conspiracy theories I've heard, perhaps not the strangest, and it does explain what happened to D.B. Cooper after all these years.
