For twenty-five years, the true origin of Matt Wagner’s Eisner award-winning anti-hero Grendel has remained largely unseen. Until now, these early issues were only available for top dollar prices in online auctions or bag and board collector shops.
A successful novelist by day, Hunter Rose becomes the unstoppable assassin Grendel by night. Containing Primer #2 and Grendel #1-3 originally published by Comico, this new collection is an essential piece of comics history, and represents the earliest work of Matt Wagner, the legendary creator behind such acclaimed projects as Mage, Sandman Mystery Theater, and Batman: The Monster Men among many others.
With new cover art by Wagner, The Original Grendel is a must-have for all who count themselves among the legion of Grendel fans and the ultimate starting point for those interested in one of the most influential independent comics of the last quarter century!
Matt Wagner’s Original Grendel arrives in stores in early 2007 with a cover price of $14.95.
