Vivat Grendel!

Similar to a comic book read, the action moves along a bit like a screenplay and doesn't delve too deep, but is enjoyable nonetheless. Expands the Grendel and Grendel Prime mythos with a decent backstory (and origin) and rewards those who admire honor, loyalty and warrior ideals. This is also a great book for those who can't get enough of the Grendel Prime character.

Excellent companion piece

This book is for the fan who has followed Grendel from the early eighties. The story retells the original story of Susan, a disenchanted Grendel in search of her redemption in the form of Grendel Prime. The book expands a little on the Grendel story line. In this respect it makes is a good companion piece to the fans of the comic book line. As a stand alone story the book does well until the end where you are left hanging. Hopefully more of the stories will be presented in this genre. I have enjoyed the novelizations of some of the comic lines, and to some this may be a "legitimate" way to enjoy comic books. Additionally, the price is not all that bad. As a trade paperback it is far less than a hardcover, and with the Wagner artwork the price is easily justified.
