Most often, the master painter's hand of Grendel-creator Matt Wagner graces only book covers, but here, with the uncensored account of Grendel-Prime's quest to contact the spirit of the original Grendel, Hunter Rose, Wagner brings his astonishing brushwork to an entire volume's worth of storytelling!

In seven chapters, all written and lusciously painted by Wagner, the deadly cyborg Grendel-Prime pursues the past with singular purpose, even while the decadent and decaying world he has forsaken hunts him for reasons of its own. With each chapter a twisted relation to the children's rhyme, "Rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief, doctor, lawyer, Indian chief," this tightly crafted work is an essential piece of the Grendel canon, and a tie-in to Wagner's popular Batman/Grendel series.
