Over 700 years ago, the poet Dante Allighieri found his way to the Underworld from the dark wood outside his native Florence, and the adventure he recorded in The Inferno still haunts us to this day. Now a new traveler finds his gateway to Hell beneath the urban jungle of the "City of Angels," weaving new characters and contemporary scenarios with the timelessly familiar scenes Dante described. Fraught with obstacles, monsters, horrific visions and prophecies--all visualized in an epic graphic woodcut-like style.
Journey with him, as each step down this human whirlpool brings new dangers and monstrosities, and we delve ever deeper into the torments of our own minds.
"Ron Bassilian has taken Dante's Inferno and reworked and re-imagined the classic epic into an updated, powerfully emotional voyage through the stuff of nightmares, while Jim Wheelock's artwork, sometimes reminiscent of the 1930s woodcut picture stories of Lynd Ward, conjures up a phantasmagoria of an often hallucinogenic intensity. A remarkable book."--Bryan Talbot.
