Lewis Polk is a good cop. But in a bad town, a good cop is the worst thing you can be. When Polk sticks his too-clean nose into the wrong kind of business once too often, he finds Hunter Rose, the original Grendel, all too happy to cut it off. And Rose won't stop cutting there; his wounds tend to run deeper than that.
Reprinting issues 16 and 17 of the color Grendel series initially published in 1988, Grendel Classics #1 brings back into print this highly demanded story of the original Grendel, Hunter Rose, with a new format and new cover by Grendel creator Matt Wagner. Wagner utilizes a bold and experimental style for this Chandler-esque character study, exploring one man's struggle to uncover the truth in a corrupt world -- the world of Grendel!
