“Four Devils, One Hell”

I recently passed this along to a friend — “Grendel Tales: Four Devils, One Hell” is easily one of the best comic stories I’ve ever read.  I want to call it a limited series, but “Grendel Tales” was an ongoing 1990’s anthology series with individual stories that took place in the expansive “Grendel” universe established by the genius Matt Wagner.

The story is by James Robinson, the art is by Teddy Kristiansen.  [Edit: the covers below actually were painted by Wagner himself.]

It’s a mixture of crime noir, drug-addled fantasy, apocalyptic fiction, a conspiracy mystery, good old vampire horror and a kick-ass New Orleans party story.  It deserves a 10 out of 10.
