SANTIAGO GARCIA and DAVID RUBIN unite to bring forward the myth of Beowulf,
which has endured for a thousand years, inspired an epic poem, become a foundational piece of English literature, and influenced generations of authors:
from J.R.R. Tolkien and Seamus Heaney to a multitude of Hollywood screenwriters.

BEOWULF tells of the tale of a Scandinavian hero in lands that would become what is now Denmark and Sweden. A monster, Grendel, has arrived in the kingdom of the Danes, devouring its men and women for over a decade until Beowulf arrives to save them.

GARCIA and RUBIN faithfully follow the original story for a new version that is neither revisionist nor postmodern, but captures the tone and important details of the poem, translating its potent, epic resonance and melancholy into a contemporary comic that isn't standard swords and sorcery or heroic fantasy fare, but rather an ancient story with a modern perspective that remains respectful of the source material.

Beowulf 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
PaulAllard More than 1 year ago
Another version of this ancient tale – well-illustrated A new rendering of the story of Beowulf and Grendel and the events subsequent to Grendel's defeat, this works well. Bloody and with a high body count, it tells of the Norse legend with a lot of illustrations of battle and fighting. Not bad at all for what it is.
