Dark Horse Comics is in the process of reprinting Matt Wagner’s Grendel series in the omnibus format, and today AIPT has the first look at volumes 2 and volume 3. With Grendel Omnibus Vol. 1 out in June 2022, Vol. 2 is expected on September 14, 2022, with vol. 3 out on January 23, 2023.
These collections come right in time for the upcoming Grendel Netflix show, which will adapt Matt Wagner’s classic in an 8 episode series. The show does not have a release date yet, although Looper guesses it’ll be some time in spring 2023.

No longer content to inhabit one host at a time, the Grendel entity goes viral, in this new phase of Matt Wagner’s epic, which spans centuries and culminates in the rise of a new kind of host: the Grendel-Khan!
As the Grendel cycle transitions into the far future, artists Tim Sale, John K. Snyder, Jay Geldhof, and Hannibal King join creator Matt Wagner for the most ambitious phase to date. From the broken world of the “Incubation Years” rise parallel figures: the corruption-fighting Orion Assante and a mysterious new Grendel. Each wages his own war against Pope Innocent XLII, in God and the Devil, and the aftermath establishes the most powerful Grendel yet, in Devil’s Reign, with Matt Wagner rewriting the rules of comics storytelling at every turn in this highly charged political drama. With over five hundred pages of visionary writing and breathtaking art, the Grendel Omnibus series takes readers deeper into Wagner’s timeless classic!
The third major Grendel story arc—all covers and stories!
Exciting origin stories—finally collected in a standard-sized comics format!
Collected chronologically following Matt Wagner’s Grendel timeline!
