Grendel vs The Shadow #3
Words and Pictrues:
While I’m sad to see this mini-series end (even though that’s what mini-series do) I couldn’t be happier with how it came to a close.
Grendel vs The Shadow #2
Words and Pictures:
“Drop your weapon, villain! Or face the pitiless judgment of… The Shadow!” If that doesn’t get the noirier (noiry-er, noiry, noiree?) parts of your soul tingling, then you have no noir in your soul sir. Matt Wagner has paired his Neo-Noir (is that a thing or did I just make it up? Feels right, even if I did just make it up.) villainous hero and matched him step for step with the classic Noir anti-hero, and it makes for a great read.

This book hits me in several of my sweet spots. (Man, I really need to think these things through before I type them out.) Matt Wagners’ Grendel is the bad guy you can’t help but root for. And The Shadow, well, I’ve been a fan of The Shadow for years. You can thank my Dad. He used to buy me old time radio plays (on cassette, I know, I’m old, don’t judge me), I even saw the movie. (I didn’t say I liked the movie, I said, I saw the movie.)
