    AiPT! - John F. Trent Nov 4, 2014

    This book is an excellent ending to a very well-done mini-series. Matt Wagner's story pushes both Grendel and The Shadow to their limits. Furthermore, there is added depth including a surprise twist and an excellent compare and contrast on how each interacts with the women in their lives. His artwork is top-notch, with on the edge of your seat action sequences and great panel placement. Highlighting the artwork is Brennan Wagner's beautiful colors, bringing out the emotion of the characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 5, 2014

    This is a satisfying conclusion to a crossover for sure, but it's also just a satisfying comic to read. I rushed to read it this week because it was so entertaining, but also because I never knew what Wagner really intended to do with the story and characters. I'm kind of wishing there was more or a second volume already in the works because I think these two worlds work incredibly well, but time will tell and really only The Shadow knows.

His inability to find any mention of his adventures in the past suggests Grendel's journey wasn't just through time but also through an alternate dimension where crime does not pay.

    We The Nerdy - Richard Langston Apr 9, 2015

    I'd be more inclined to recommend the Grendel Omnibus Vol. 1 to those unfamiliar with the character, and to comic fans in general, because it's an amazing story that feels more like literature than a typical comic book, the latter of which is what we have with this comic. My biggest gripe as a huge fan of this character is that this series cheapens the mythology of the character. Also the dialogue is 90's comics bad, with one-liners and quips being exchanged that a character as literate and elitist would kill someone else for even thinking of uttering. Read Full Review
