Beowulf Had It All Wrong

Matt Wagner's "Grendel" is blowing my mind so hard my neighbors are getting migraines. :)

I'm not done with it yet - just finished "God and the Devil" last night - so I'll probably have more to say about it later, but my God, it's such a sublime, intricate work of literature. Why don't more people know about this? Why hasn't the entire saga been collected in TPBs and reprinted and set up on the top shelf with "Watchmen", "V For Vendetta" and "Sandman"?

Because IMO, it's that good.
