Beowulf Graphic Novel

By Gareth Hinds

First recorded in 1000 A.D., the epic tale of the warrior-prince Beowulf is here 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 to the funeral boats burning on the fjords, all are rendered in glorious and gruesome detail.

  • Based on the translation by A. J. Church published by Seeley & Co. in 1904.
  • Ideal for graphic novel fans and reluctant readers.
