Dark Horse Direct is proud to present the ultimate collector’s item for any Grendel fan, the hyper-limited Grendel: Devil by the Deed—Master’s Edition hardcover collection. Limited to only 12 copies in existence, each collection comes with a one-of-a-kind, ink drawing by Matt Wagner himself!

Matt Wagner returns to the seminal “Devil by the Deed” Hunter Rose story that started the epic, centuries-spanning Grendel saga. In this all-new reimagining of “Devil by the Deed,” Wagner brings his decades of experience and artistry back to the famous narrative that first began his lengthy and illustrious career as a comic-book author. The original tale of the dashing and diabolical Hunter Rose was deceptively brief, considering its cultural impact. Over the years, Wagner has expanded on the story of Hunter Rose and now he weaves the most dramatic of those elements into a brand-new graphic novel. Grendel: Devil by the Deed—Master’s Edition is Matt Wagner at the height of his artistic and story-telling prowess, featuring 120 all-new story pages that will dazzle first-time and longtime readers alike, with colors by Brennan Wagner.

The Dark Horse Direct limited run of Grendel: Devil by the Deed—Master’s Edition includes a signed and numbered tip-in sheet. The hardcover is housed in a unique slipcase, which also contains a limited 16-page comic and original art by Matt Wagner!
