If you like Batman and Grendel this volume is for you. This is a good but not great collection of two graphic novels in which Batman confronts two versions of Grendel The first story which features Hunter Rose, the original Grendel is great. The comparison between Grendel and Batman is good but the comparison of Hunter Rose and Bruce Wayne is excellent. The parallel stories of two women onewho gets involved with Rose and onewho gets involved with Bruce Wayne also adds texture to the story This story gets five stars The second story is mostly fight scenes and features Grendel Prime the killer cyborg who is the weakest of the Grendels in being interesting This story gets three stars so four stars for asolic collection Worth buying and owning
I love Matt Wagner's work on Batman. I have every trade paperback featuring Batman written by this guy. In case you don't know what they are here is the list:
Batman: Faces Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman: Trinity Batman and the Monster Men Batman and the Mad Monk Batman/Grendel

The second mini-series features Batman against a cyborg Grendel called Grendel Prime. Grendel Prime has come from the future to steal the bones(specifically the...
I'm not familiar with the character of Grendel at all, but am very well read when it comes to Batman. This trade collects two stories, the first being Batman's confrontation with the hunter rose version of Grendel, the second being a Grendel from the future being sent back to present time. The first is more or an intellectual story, less fighting more talking. While the second is more of a straight up Batman fighting Grendel story. So you get a little of each with this one. Definately worth picking up if you're into either character.
