Upcoming Crossovers: Grendel vs. the Shadow

Next month, Dynamite Entertainment is publishing the first issue of a miniseries by Matt Wagner where Wagner's character Grendel meets the Shadow. Note that the preview also has a Sweeney Todd reference. Assuming that this story fits into Crossover Universe continuity, I'm also going to need to read the two crossovers between Grendel and Batman from the 1990s. For CU purposes, the Batman in those stories would have to be Bruce Wayne Jr., the son of the original Dark Knight.

  1. If I remember right, in the first Batman crossover, Batman says that Grendel has been operating for three years. The book Grendel Cycle has a timeline detailing the history of the Grendels, and Hunter Rose's time as Grendel is listed as taking place from 1979 to 1983. This might mean the first Batman/Grendel takes place in 1982.

    Of course, as you say we'll all have to wait till The Shadow crossover is out to see if it'll fit.
