Kid Beowulf! by Alexis Fajardo

Grace and I got a lovely surprise over the weekend … a sketch from Alexis Fajardo, the writer and artist of Kid Beowulf, a fun comic inspired by the epic poem BEOWULF. Kid Beowulf follows the journey of 12-year-old twin brothers Beowulf and Grendel as they travel to distant lands and meet fellow epic heroes therein!

Kid Beowulf is an all-ages, action adventure series similar to Bone, Asterix and Avatar: The Last Airbender. The newest book, “Kid Beowulf and the Song of Roland” just came out this spring. You can check it out at

As an English major and a comic fan, this really appealed to me … and we had fun drawing. And, Cate even ended her strike to draw a picture of Hama the Pig. Alexis, getting Cate to consent to draw again is a coup. Thanks!
