Matt Wagner is re-igniting his creator-owned franchise Grendel for a new limited series focused on the future version of the character, Grendel Prime. Scheduled to debut October 2 from Dark Horse Comics, Grendel: Devil's Odyssey follows the character on a mission to find a new home for humanity as Earth falls into disrepair.
This Grendel revival comes just weeks after the culmination of Wagner's other creator-owned franchise, Mage.
Wagner will write and draw all eight issues of Grendel's Devil Odyssey, with his son Brennan Wagner on colors and Dave Lanphear lettering. Fabio Moon will be illustrating a variant cover for the first issue.
