Dark Horse is proud to present this second Grendel anthology. Each story is a vignette of the devious misdeeds of Hunter Rose, the first incarnation of Grendel. The Grendel tales are illustrated in stark black, white, and blood red by some of the top talents in comics, including Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother), Michael Avon Oeming (Powers), Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), Kelley Jones (Sandman), Andi Watson (Geisha), Dan Brereton (The Nocturnals), Phil Noto (Birds of Prey), Zander Cannon (Top Ten), Andy Kuhn (Firebreather), Ashley Wood (popbot), Jim Mahfood (Grrl Scouts), Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Tom Fowler (Caper), Mike Huddleston (Harley Quinn), Cliff Chiang (Detective Comics), John K. Snyder (Grendel: God and the Devil), Michael Zulli (Creatures of the Night), and Phil Hester & Ande Parks (Green Arrow), and more, including a seldom seen Grendel story drawn by Matt Wagner himself! Rivals to Grendel's mob employer, the Ciccone family, never expected to deal with the Devil himself!

Some 20 years ago, Wagner published his first stories featuring Hunter Rose, a young socialite who was secretly a criminal mastermind and fearsome costumed assassin known as Grendel. In the initial series, Rose died at the hands of Argent, a werewolf fighting on the side of the law. Wagner has continued to produce Grendel, however, mostly by depicting future versions of the character, who comes, over the centuries, to be recognized as the incarnation of sheer evil. Others episodes revisit Rose's stint as the first to wear the mask. This book gathers 23 interconnected stories that retell Rose's life and death, all written by Wagner and illustrated by various artists in black-and-white with occasional blood-red accents. Wagner's collaborators include Kelley Jones, Jill Thompson, and Michael Zulli, all known for their work on Sandman. Grendel fans may best appreciate this alternative view of the story that started it all, but the collection affords new readers opportunity to experience the Hunter Rose saga in a single volume, rendered by an enjoyable diversity of talented illustrators.
