"My history and relationship with Grendel are my oldest, professionally. Grendel was, really, the first character I built any sort of continuity about. Anyone involved with this medium in any way will know what I mean when I say everyone has spawned dozens of extranormal extras over the years. Such was the case with me, but Grendel was really the first one that I attempted to build from a central idea. This has, in the end, become the character's greatest strenght. Grendel is formulated aggression.

In its early years, the character examined this through a discourse of the similarities between so-called "good" and "evil". Eventually, a change in the format and scheduling of my involvement with the character resulted in a shift in the emphasis to the Machiavellian aspects of Grendel. Now, I am presented with the opportunity to examine aggression in a nearly endless myriad of characters and stories. In the course of this series, I see the essence of Grendel making itself evident in so very many ways.Aggression has worn, and always will wear a number of faces and know a lot of names.So will Grendel. Grendel, for all this universal viciousness, holds a special meaning for both Comico and myself. As we were all three, really, virgins together, it speaks a subtle irony that we should celebrate success and forge ahead together. We're proud of Grendel. He'd be proud of us."
