Under instructions from a being known as "The Shaper," Beowulf travels to Castle Hrothgar in Daneland, to fight the monster Grendel. On the way there, Beowulf and his men take a detour into the Underworld where they rescue Nan-Zee, a Swedish scylfing warrior from the Demons who have been controlling her. Beowulf, Nan-Zee, and his companions Wiglaf and Hondscio continue onwards to Castle Hrothgar, but are again detoured, ending up in a bog where they battle "Swamp Men." Meanwhile, for some reason, Grendel and his mother reveal to the reader that they are descendants of Caim. Somehow, Beowulf and friends fall through a dimensional gateway beneath a patch of quicksand into a fiery underworld they refer to as Hell.

At a later point in the series, Beowulf discovers that the only way to slay Grendel is with the nectar of the "Zumak Fruit." Along the way, he encounters Dracula, a mysterious Lost Tribe of Israel, Ulysses accompanied by a troop of anonymous Greek Warriors, Egyptian/Sumerian space aliens straight out of Chariots of Gods, and the lost city of Atlantis

In the final issue of the series, Beowulf and Nan-Zee travel from Atlantis to Crete, where they finally get their hands on some Zumak fruit in the labyrinth of King Minos where Beowulf fights a Minotaur that is being controlled by Satan. Because Satan has made Dracula his heir over Grendel, Grendel kills Satan by plunging a stalactite into his back. The Minotaur dies, and Beowulf eats some Zumak fruit; the fruit grants him supernatural strength on par with Grendel. Beowulf and Nan-Zee then make their way back to Daneland in order to slay Grendel who has taken Satan's place as king of the underworld.

Beowulf later reappears when Wonder Woman and Stalker recruit him and Claw for a mission to slay the Demon Lord Dgrth.
