The original Grendel, Hunter Rose, returns in this new mini-series written and drawn by Matt Wagner! This is an untold chapter in the life of the greatest criminal mastermind in history -- a thrilling and horrifying glimpse into a time when Rose's novels were at the top of all the bestseller lists and rumors of the assassin Grendel were on the lips of every terrified mobster unfortunate enough to present an obstacle to Rose's utter domination of the city's underworld. For the first time in over a decade, Wagner returns to the character that made him famous to reveal the biggest secret of Rose's illustrious and bloody career as Grendel! Written and art by Matt Wagner.
