Collects Grendel backup stories from Mage: The Hero Discovered (1985) #6-14. Story and art by Matt Wagner. When Wagner first serialized Grendel: Devil by the Deed as a backup in his critically acclaimed title Mage, its innovative storytelling techniques, philosophical undertones, and charismatic anti-hero ignited a devoted following. Introducing Hunter Rose as the brilliant, twisted assassin Grendel, it gave birth to what has become a centuries-spanning epic exploring the roots and consequences of violence.
