Twin brothers, Beowulf and Grendel, are lost in ancient Italy and forced to fight for their freedom in the gladiatorial games. In the arena the brothers will discover a part of themselves neither knew existed and the fighter and the monster will emerge. Meanwhile in the Tiber River Valley among the Seven Hills, two tribes are at odds: the high-born Sabines who have made the land their own and the poor Latin farmers who are forced to till it. Compelled toward change, a young Latin girl named Tarpeia incites a revolution no one is ready for, particularly the pair chosen to lead it: twin brothers, Romulus and Remus. Action and adventure. Swords and sandals. The newest Kid Beowulf graphic novel is inspired by history, mythology, and the founding of ROME!
