The Inferno. It is a sprawling, endless mass made up of the fragments of every earthly city that ever existed. Its inhabitants are the damned, the desperate…those whom redemption cannot touch. It is a city that revels in its debauchery, where crime is the passion and sin is the fuel. It is a city of pain. It is a city where John Travis suddenly finds himself for sins committed before…but was it a mistake? See why Comic International calls Inferno “A work of genius on the dark fantasy genre.”
Overview: From the mind of Mike Carey, writer of DC Comic's Lucifer series now in development as a television series by FOX. And writer on such titles as Marvel’s X-Men, Fantastic Four; DC’s Hellblazer, Batman. Along with artist Michael Gaydos (Marvel’s New Avengers, Spider-Man, Daredevil). A mysterious man in a mysterious city. A city infested with corruption…fueled by sin…and justice is independent of the laws. At the heart of the netherworld is the city called Inferno…a sprawling, endless mass made up of fragments of every earthly city that ever existed. Its inhabitants are the damned, the desperate…those whom redemption cannot touch. When John Travis is murdered, it is to Inferno that his spirit comes. But it’s all a mistake…Travis’ killers were looking for someone else. Now Travis finds himself both pawn and prize in a game he doesn’t understand and the stakes include both his immortal soul and his memory of a past life. Travis has his allies, of course, including the prophet Nostradamus and the woman Shule Borraial. Together they’re prepared to risk their own souls to get Travis back into the city in one piece. But why do they claim to have met Travis before? And why did they have him killed? Inferno is more than the saga of a loner trying to make sense of a strange and terrifying world in which he is thrown into. It is the story of the city itself which seems to permeate its own evil life through the streets and all of its inhabitants. Can one man make a difference?
