B.A.E. WULF is a modern-day mashup of Beowulf and Lovecraftian horror, following disgraced reporter Brenda Amy Edmonton as she finds more than she bargained for on one of her investigations: a supernatural menace stemming from the ongoing war between humanity and the otherworldly Exiled Gods.

In this first graphic novel of the series, Brenda Amy Edmonton is a disgraced reporter who finds her world turned upside down when she investigates a wave of disappearances with ties to the occult. 

Before she knows it, Brenda (B.A.E.) ends up in the middle of an ancient war that might destroy the human race.

A ghostly killer haunts Chinatown, murdering innocent children. 

Brenda Amy Edmonton, suspecting a connection between this killer and the Exiled Gods she vowed to stop from invading Earth, is on the case. She must use all the skills she learned as a journalist to find out why this killer is targeting children and stop him. 

But the local cops, especially Detective Amy Hahn, bristle at Edmonton's interference, even suspecting that she is the real killer. Facing opposition from all angles, even her own self-doubt, Edmonton must solve the case before it's too late.
