These days usually working on DC's most popular superheroes, Wagner remains best known for his earliest creation, criminal mastermind and costumed assassin Grendel. The first stories featuring the character see the light of day for the first time in a quarter-century in this volume. The premier episode, published when Wagner was 21, is almost unreadably crude, but by Grendel's second appearance, the sense of design that would become Wagner's most salient artistic trait begins to surface, even if he doesn't possess the craft to realize it. Wagner later revisited Grendel more effectively. These early efforts provide an edifying comparative touchstone. Flagg, Gordon
