Beowulf And Comics

Google confirms that Beowulf has been adapted into comics more than once and also discloses that there is an illustrated edition of Seamus Heaney's translation.

Currently reading Heaney's translation, I have so far found three short passages relevant to comics:

"...a baleful light,
"flame more than light, flared from [Grendel's] eyes."
(Seamus Heaney, Beowulf, London, 1999, p. 24)

"The hero observed that swamp-thing..." (p. 50)

"'A protector of his people, pledged to uphold
"'truth and justice...'" (p. 55)
