Based on the classic story, this graphic novel tells the tale of Beowulf, an epic hero who bravely faces the most fearsome creatures.

In the kingdom of Hrothgar, men are being slaughtered by a godless creature. Grendel has proven that he cannot be defeated, even by the king's greatest warriors. He comes in the night and feeds on the men. After twelve years, Beowulf comes to the aid of Hrothgar. He defeats Grendel and earns himself fame. But his battle is far from over, for another monster has come to avenge Grendel--his mother.

BEOWULF is one of the most popular tales of heroism, being passed from generation to generation. Here it is presented in stark simplicity. The tale of brutal danger and the raw battles for life are coupled with sharp, dark images. The effect is a novel that is as ominous as the story itself. ( )

The graphic novel “Beowulf” by Steven Petrucha is filled with much of the substance I’ve come to enjoy from modern comics, with it being quick of tempo and filled with action. And while it is not a literal translation and takes poetic license with the Anglo-Saxon tale, Mr. Petrucha’s story is enchanting and the Mignolaesque art eye-catching. ( )
