Despite having a complete season filmed, Netflix decided to cancel their planned series Grendel.
Matt Wagner's Grendel comic book series was the first form of the monster saga.
Comico published the first issue of the series in 1982; however, when Comico filed for bankruptcy, Dark Horse assumed publishing duties.
Author Hunter Rose, assuming the identity of the assassin and criminal lord Grendel, engages in nefarious activities behind a mask.
Grendel's notoriety has increased over time, to the point that he appeared in a Batman crossover in 1993.
The first effort to turn Grendel and his realm into live action was Netflix's eight-part Grendel.
