Based on the epic poem Beowulf, this graphic novel is a comic look at a childhood gone heroic. In this version, Beowulf and Grendel still contend with each other and fight all the time -- but this time they do it as 12-year-old twin brothers! This first book in the series sets the stage for their future adventures together, traveling to different lands and meeting other young heroes. A humor/adventure series created in the same vein as Asterix and Jeff Smith's Bone. Fun for all ages.
