Drago's last mission as a Grendel is to destroy the monster hiding in the forest, and even he is completely unaware of what really lies before him. The monster turns out to be a kindred spirit, another victim who has paid the terrible price of war. Faced with this cold reality, Drago must devise a plan that will allow both him and the monster to leave this world with dignity, and he has to do it before the ambitious Zora gets in the way. Meanwhile, back at town, the wheels of intrigue continue to turn as plans are made to remove the Grendel-General and replace him with a surprising candidate -- his son! The stunning conclusion of Devils and Deaths is from the Croatian team of writer Darko Macan and artist Edvin Biukovic, with painted colors by Eisner Award-nominee Matthew Hollingsworth.
