    Grendel
    The Grendel: Behold the Devil comic has nothing to do with Beowulf. This Grendel is an anti-hero created by Matt Wagner. Well, I’m not sure if he could even be classified as an anti-hero. He’s really a bad guy but you root for him. Wikipedia has this quote:

    The first Grendel was Hunter Rose (Wagner has hinted of previous Grendels in history, but Rose is the earliest which he has written about), a youthful genius who wrote novels by day and ran a criminal empire by night.

    He’s a fascinating character, and I really enjoy the comics that Wagner and company have done thus far.
