Batman/Grendel: Devil's Riddle, by Matt Wagner

  Batman/Grendel: Devil's Riddle (part 1), by Matt Wagner, 48 pages

Not going to lie- I picked this up in the hope that Grendel was going to be like Beowulf's Grendel.  :(  It is not- this Grendel is sort of like a ninja with a cane who wants to steal the Sphinx.  Not what I was hoping for.  The art is fairly '90s, but with classic Bob Kane-style Batman- so it's not terrible.  Both of my library copies of this have artwork cut out of page 7/8, so I'm annoyed and curious at what someone found offensive or enticing enough to remove.
