Bruce Grigsby is a character in the DEXTER Comics. He first appears in Dexter: Down Under: Issue 1. Bruce is a white supremacist, and the CEO and founder of Citizens for a White Australia


Just like Steve Gonzalez , Bruce Grigsby is a millionaire, charming on the outside and a philantropist of sorts. However his nature as a white supremacist become clear after Shawna and Dexter discuss the recent inmigrants murders with him. He clearly states his disgust for inmigrants and anyone alien to his country.

Bruce seems to live for the thrill of the hunt, he considers himself superior to his would-be victims, even giving Dexter and Shawna a heads up before starting to hunt them. 

He demonstrates no regards for the lives of immigrants, giving false hopes of freedom to one of his victims, sending the latter to kill Dexter - to no avail as Dexter killed the unnamed victim.

Bruce, hidden in the darkness.

Hidden in the darkness, Bruce takes out a knife and kills a family of four recently arrived inmigrants. The next morning the bodies are found, but the Canberra police still lacks enough evidence to point a suspect, so they enlist the help of an american expert in the field, Dexter Morgan. After investigating, and narrowing a list of suspects, Shawna Wiggs and Dexter, visit Bruce, pointing him as one of their primary suspects. Bruce receives both with great courtesy, but his disgust for inmigrants is clear enough to Dexter.

Bruce's Dark Passenger

He clearly has a motive for the murders, but again, with not enough evidence to blame Bruce for the murders, they leave Grigsby's home, but not before Dexter sense Grigsby's Dark Passenger looking back at him. 

Issue #2

Bruce watches Dexter and Shawna at his latest kill.

Bruce becomes a primary suspect on the inmigrant murders after Dexter senses his dark passenger. Captain Gower tells Dexter and Shawna Bruce is untouchable, pointing out they need solid proof to bring him down. Dexter is sure that Bruce will kill again, and he does. Bruce murders an entire family of inmigrants again, this time to make a point, knowing very well that Dexter and Shawna are on his trail. Dexter and Shawna are present at the latest crime scene, unknown to them, they are being watched from not so far away by Bruce.

Issue #3

With still not solid proof of his involvement in the inmigrants murders, Ben Grigsby, unseen by Dexter and Shawna is yet again present near the most recent crime scene. Just as with previous crime scenes he is on the top of a nearby building, watching the crime scene and the reaction of the people. He smiles after seeing Dexter and Shawna on the scene and leaves.

Dexter later finds out a possible connection between Grigsby and the murders. Each murder, at least the ones after Dexter's arrival, have been committed near a location that belongs to no other than Bruce Grigsby. Dexter also finds out Bruce owns a website, where the visitors play a minigame in which the objective is to kill endangered species, with a mobile robot that sports some sort of machine gun.  Shawna is not happy with such little information as that does not prove Bruce is involved, however Dexter surprises her when he finds out that if you become a member, get a password, the visitors can actually become part of the hunt in real life, and hunt actual human beings - inmigrants.

They both travel to Ayers Rock, to find a far isolated farm belonging to Grigsby, and surprisingly, instead of sheep, they find people imprisoned and ready to be hunted. Grigsby surprises them and shoots both in the chest with a shotgun.

Issue #4

Grigsby has spared both Dexter and Shawna, only to release them in the middle of the desert, barely dressed and ready to be hunted. He gives them some advantage to start running before the hunt begins. And so it does, as Bruce uses a tank-like robotic vehicle to chase both of them, while using a quad-copter as means of surveillance to avoid them from escaping the site.

Issue #5

modus operandi


Robotic Vehicle

The Armed Robotic Vehicle (though not named in the comic) is an unmanned robotic tank-like vehicle used by Bruce Grigsby to search, hunt and eventually kill his victims during the games in the Australian desert. 

The vehicle has rifle-like guns mounted on each side of it's front section. It is used in tandem with an hovering camera to search the participants of Grigsby's games during the hunt.

As stated by Grigsby, the advantages of using robots is that they do not get tire.


A quad-copter with a mounted camera, used in tandem with the robotic vehicle to search and eliminate targets. The copter follows the victims from above and into the woods.


  • At least 8 seen victims. He tends to kill entire families, most of his victims are of asian origin. 

Attempted Victims

  • Dexter Morgan
  • Shawna Wiggs



  • Bruce Grigsby is similar to the TV series character Louis Greene in the fact that both of them are related to the creation of a video game which involves the killing of another living being, though in Bruce case, it turns out the game is a masquerade to a real-life hunt of innocent people.
  • Bruce shares various traits with the antagonist from the previous volume, Steve Gonzalez . They both are millionaires, philantropist, founders and CEOs of grand companies and both share the taste of killing others, though their motives are very different.
