Beowulf (Graphic Novel) by Gareth Hinds
First recorded in 1000 A.D., the epic tale of the warrior-prince Beowulf is reinvented through Gareth Hinds’s masterful and darkly beautiful illustrations. Grendel’s black blood runs thick as Beowulf defeats the monster and his hideous mother, and red fires rage in the hero’s final battle against a ferocious dragon. From lightning-paced contests of muscle and will to the funeral boats burning on the fjords, all are rendered in glorious and gruesome detail.
“The book makes a gorgeous whole… will have high appeal for many, particularly fans of video games and action movies.” Booklist, USA
