Grendel - now armed with relics to battle the other worldly presence that has been stalking him - sets his sights on the Koreans. They tried to kill him in issue 4 and he's still pissed about it.
So, the Koreans realize that their bomb didn't do jack against Grendel, so they go into hiding. The Korean boss surrounds himself with his bodyguards and hide out for a couple of days.
Grendel tracks them down and makes short work of all five of the armed men. Awesome fight scene - large splash pages, lots of red against the stark black and white. This is my favorite issue of the series - this fight scene is simply fantastic.
Liz and Lucas fight about keeping secrets and they part on bad terms. Remember - Lucas knows that Grendel is Hunter Rose.
We get back the the Devil at work - he draws a circle with a cursed bone and tosses a potion into the circle and...behold the demon that has been following him this whole time.
Great issue - it shows how easily Grendel played the Koreans from the beginning. This series is a great way to reintroduce the character after a 5 year hiatus. It reads fast and and looks awesome. 2 more issues - lots of surprises.
Until next time - happy reading.
