Wagner tells lost story of Hunter Rose in Grendel: Behold the Devil!
For the first time in over a decade, comics pioneer Matt Wagner writes and draws a miniseries starring his most influential creation—Hunter Rose, the original and most feared assassin known as Grendel!
Launching this July with a fifty-cent prologue issue, Grendel: Behold the Devil chronicles an untold chapter in the life of Hunter Rose over the course of eight intrigue-laden, blood-soaked issues.
A child prodigy, Rose grew up to become a bestselling novelist by day and a criminal mastermind by night. It was only after his death that Rose’s step-granddaughter, the noted journalist Christine Spar, discovered his private journals and uncovered Grendel’s true meaning as a symptom of society’s mediocrity and ceaseless lust for violence.
Now, the final missing pages of Rose’s journals, long thought lost, have been discovered.
“For the first time, readers will be privy to a narrative that even Christine Spar was never able to uncover,” said Wagner. “We will not only find out what happened during that time, but also why those pages were ripped out and what, ultimately, became of them.”
The twenty-fifth anniversary of Grendel’s first appearance, 2007 is the perfect time for Wagner to tell this epic new tale of the character that launched his illustrious career. “
In twenty-five years, Matt has gone from a talented kid with a lot of spunk to one of the most popular and innovative creators in comics,” said Senior Editor Diana Schutz. “Behold the Devil is a masterpiece addition to his already impressive oeuvre.”
Colored in the black, white, and red color palette synonymous with stories of Hunter Rose, each issue in this eight-part series contains twenty pages of story and retails for $2.99.
Featuring an introductory story exclusive to the issue, the fifty-cent prologue of Grendel: Behold the Devil arrives on sale from Dark Horse Comics on July 18.
