Four essential chapters in the massive Grendel story saga by Matt Wagner and collaborators Diana Schutz, Tim Sale, Arnold & Jacob Pander, and Bernie Mireault are collected, in chronological order and in a standard comics-size format for the first time!

Stacy Palumbo’s fate is detailed in "Devil Child", the chain of evil continues as Christine Spar takes up the next Grendel mantle in "Devil’s Legacy," and the nature of the Grendel entity begins to reveal itself in "The Devil Inside." Finally, Wagner returns as both writer and artist for a pair of "Devil Tales" that look back on the career of Hunter Rose, each illustrated in a different experimental style.

Celebrate the fortieth anniversary of this dynamic comics masterpiece!

About Author

Matt Wagner has enjoyed a career in comics for over twenty years. Born and educated in Pennsylvania, his first published work was a short story that would introduce one of comicdom’s most respected creator-owned characters—the mastermind assassin, GRENDEL. Best known for this epic creation and his other, more personal, allegory, MAGE, Matt has also worked on a variety of established characters. These include his ground-breaking work on the character of Batman villain, Two-Face, in the graphic novel, FACES, as well as a five-year stint both developing and generating the stories for the fan-favorite Vertigo title, SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE. His more recent efforts in this vein have included writing the DR. MID-NITE mini-series for DC Comics and serving as the regular cover artist on the Kevin Smith-penned relaunch of GREEN ARROW.

Known for his character-driven stories and his obvious love of the world’s mythologies, Matt has also enjoyed the distinction of being one of the only writer/artists allowed to team his own creation with one of DC’s flagship characters in two successive BATMAN/GRENDEL cross-overs.

In the past few years, Matt has also written and drawn several high profile projects for DC; a three-issue prestige series starring Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman; titled TRINITY and a year-long, project which comprised two mini-series that chronicled some of the earliest aspects of Batman’s career, collectively titled DARK MOON RISING.
