Picking up ten years after Grendel Tales: Devils and Deaths, this new series finds the Agram clan embroiled in war. Only these days, it's become a lot harder to tell who's on what side! Since the death of his brother, Goran has developed into the finest warrior in his clan. Unfortunately, he's also the most insubordinate, and his company gets banished to the front lines.
The battlefield holds many surprises for him, as Goran's heart begins to beat not only with fear, but with love as well. Also, amidst the death and chaos, a child is born. Can his young parents escape the war and find happiness at the sea?
Also in this issue: Matt Wagner's fully painted back-up feature, Devil Quest, concludes! In the second installment of "Too Dead to Die," the principal players in this perverse plot reach the end of their mission -- but will Grendel-Prime elude their grasp?
