The trade paperback edition of Image Comics’ English translation of Santiago García (The Ladies-in-Waiting) and David Rubín’s (RUMBLE, Ether) Eisner-nominated BEOWULF hits stores this September.

García and Rubín’s graphic novel breathes new life into the epic tale of BEOWULF, the myth that has endured for a thousand years and influenced generations of authors and filmmakers. In it, the monster Grendel has arrived in the kingdom of the Danes, devouring its men and women for over a decade—until the hero Beowulf arrives to save them. Now in paperback for the first time, this English translation of Santiago García and David Rubín’s faithful depiction of the classic story brings a modern perspective to the potent, epic resonance of the source material.

The BEOWULF trade paperback (ISBN: 978-1-5343-0919-7, Diamond code: MAY180058) will be available in comics shops on Wednesday, September 19th and bookstores on Tuesday, September 25th. It can be preordered via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
