There is no shortage of Beowulf-inspired comic adaptations on the market right now. What sets [Kid Beowulf] apart is that it works from a level “one up” from the bulk of its contemporaries. It does not seek a simple retelling of the Beowulf story so that struggling readers can gain access to the story through alternate or complementary means; it retells via a revisioning of the story, taking classic characters and timeless themes and revamping them to craft a completely new and exciting narrative that is inspired by the original but by no means bound by it.
