BEOWULF HC SANTIAGO GARCIA and DAVID RUBIN unite to bring forward the myth of Beowulf, which has endured for a thousand years and inspired anepic poem of the same name, became a foundational piece of English literature, and inspired generations of authors, from Tolkien to a goodnumber of Hollywood screenwriters.BEOWULF tells of the tale of a Scandinavian hero in lands that would become what is now Denmark and Sweden: A monster, Grendel, hasarrived in the kingdom of the Danes, devouring its men and women for 12 years until Beowulf arrives to save them.GARCIA and RUBIN faithfully follow the original story for a new version that is neither revisionist nor postmodern, but captures the tone andimportant details of the poem, translating its potent, epic resonance and melancholy into a contemporary comic that isn’t standard swords andsorcery or heroic fantasy fare, but rather an ancient story with a modern perspective that remains respectful of the source material.
