Gareth Hinds’ Beowulf is a phenomenal adaptation and interpretation of the original. I’ve really never cared for the original; I know it’s significant, but I really think the text is boring. Hinds’ graphic novel, however, makes the story come to life in interesting and beautiful ways. It’s fascinating to see how Hinds’ adapted the religious and heroic motifs and symbols. It’s really quite good.
