    One thought on “Grendel: God and the Devil”

    1. I first read this story when I was in high school. It holds up better than I expected, and while there are some hilariously over-the-top elements to this story-- Pope Innocent XLII's secret identity, for example-- it is an interesting example of dystopian science fiction delving into religious issues. On the religious front, I wish so many of the corrupt Catholic figures were less cliched, from the pedophilic priest to the sado-masochistic Grand Inquisitrix that leads Innocent's new Inquisition. [...]

    2. It's taking him forever to collect the entire GRENDEL opus, and this is one of the largest missing pieces of Matt Wagner's excellent series. Coming into Grendel as a newbie with WAR CHILD, I've always been intrigued on how Wagner grew the myth of Grendel from the original Hunter Rose through Christine Spar and into the vast Grendel Khanate founded by Orion Assante in WAR CHILD. GOD & THE DEVIL was presumably to have cleared up some of that story.While the story definitely delivers at the met [...]

    3. God & The Devil (24-33). Initially, the most interesting aspect of "God & The Devil" is how it so totally remakes the world. We're now clearly on our way to a post-apocalyptic society far from our own.

We get three different protagonists [...]

    4. It's a bit funny to me as this book is mainly a prequel, a making of a Grendel if you will.Sure, there's the Eppy Thatcher Grendel in there, but throughout the book I couldn't help but feel as though poor Eppy was mostly in there as comic relief.The main story revolves around Assante and his progress towards becoming the new "version" of Grendel. It's a very good story and does take the reader on a fascinating ride, but like I said, it felt more of a prequel to the next installment.Still any Mat [...]

    5. It took me a while to read this but I was impressed. Seamlessly integrating two main plots with a series of subplots. At once apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, and visionary, because you know it's very possible that once the corporates finds out it'll sell better with religion, we're fucked.
