    Grendel » Grendel #1 - Never the Norns Surrender released by Comico on March 1, 1983.

    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    This features the second appearance of Hunter Rose (Grendel) after the Comico Primer #2.

    The story begins in medias res, Grendel and Argent having battled each other nearly to death. This situation is not fully explained by the time the series ends; it is made more clear in Devil by the Deed, a later back-up story in Mage.

    Now that they are both badly wounded, they sit back and talk. Grendel unmasks himself and talks about his origin as a precocious young boy named Eddie who won the world championship in fencing at fourteen years old. He had an affair with an older woman, Jocasta Rose, who taught him to treat life as a game. He eventually became a hitman for the mob as well as a world-famous novelist in his civilian identity, using the pseudonym Hunter Rose. He was finally recognized by a childhood friend, and killed him to keep his secret safe. Later, he took over the mob he had been working for, and began his career as the preeminent crimelord of his time.

    He compares himself to Argent, who has also killed many people. Argent disagrees, and Hunter asks him to tell his own story.

    Grendel, refreshing and rad. 0

    If truth be told I came across Grendel by watching the Kevin smith Movie 'Chasing Amy', being a comic book fan, and Kevin smith fan this was almost my favourite of his films. Then, on closer inspection, I saw that the guy playing Mike Allred was in fact Mike Allred. This is when I started to take notice of all the little things in the film and I noticed a poster of a cool looking guy, 'Grendel'.  I got hold of the 'Grendel Archives' and after the foreword I fell in love with 'Grendel'. the first...
