In celebration of the forty years of Matt Wagner’s Grendel, Dark Horse Comics will publish a brand new edition of the original Grendel Omnibus.
The first edition will naturally be Grendel Omnibus Volume 1: Hunter Rose, featuring the complete Hunter Rose storyline (which will also serve as the basis for an upcoming Netflix adaptation) and contains reprints of Grendel: Devil by the Deed, Grendel: Black, White, & Red, Grendel: Red, White, & Black, and Grendel: Behold the Devil. The new edition will also feature a brand-new cover by Matt Wagner and colored Brennan Wagner.
Other artists in the collection include: Tim Sale, Guy Davis, Stan Sakai, Mike Allred, Darrick Robertson, Michael Avon Oeming, Jill Thompson, the Pander Brothers, Duncan Fegredo, Troy Nixey, and more.
Wagner remembers “When I first created Grendel, I could only dream that the character and concepts would have a life and resonance beyond the initial storyline. Now, forty years into this dark and sprawling saga, I can look back on an epic narrative that’s always provided as many thrills and surprises for me as it hopefully has for its readers.”
Grendel Omnibus Volume 1: Hunter Rose trade paperback will be in comic shops on June 22 and will retail for $29.99.
