Hi Colin. There's a Mage sale on Comixology until today. I've never read any of it, but I quite like Grendel. What should I get?

I wonder if my answer will be a little predictable but...

...YEESSSSSSS...

All of it. Its different to Grendel in that I don't find it as experimental. Its a bit more of a hero's quest but Matt Wagner is such a master of the form its done sooooo well.

THATS MADE MY DAY!

I hope this means the OOP Omnibuses are due a reprint, I still need to pick up The Shadow/Grendel and Grendel Tales Omnibuses too.

That Fabio Moon cover is lovely.

I am really looking forward to this.

And I really, really need to get around to Mage.

God Matt Wagner is good, so very good.

I'd love to see him do Dredd.

Usually wait nowadays for the digital collections, but I've subscribed to this on Comixology, and looking forward to getting home and reading the first issue.

Matt Wagner makes the best comics.

Got it, read it, love it. Its really quite brilliant. The only disappointment is when Grendal Prime loses his space helmet. He looked so cool in  his clear space helmet. I know it served no pupose but looking cool is important in comics.

Onto more important matters. The idea of space Grendal cast away from a dead human race to start a new Grendal clone humanity engaging with aliens to see if they will be suitable partners just feels so rich and full of potential. Throw into that mix a fight with a giant alien space insectoid and this just oozes a master of his form, knowing how to make great story.

Brilliant.

Have to agree with Colin, as per usual.
A strong start and welcome return to both the character of Grendel Prime and Wagner.
It's a blank slate setting for the next 7 months, which I'm quite looking forward to.
