Description

  • It's fast and furious Faustian action as a trio of demons -- the noble Plenilunio, the hellraising Hotspot, and the haughty Hellena -- battle the evil Empyre and each other over mythic artifacts to lift their curse Meanwhile, Plenilunio's spellbound lover Lidia sleepwalks his castle and haunts his heart.
  • The cult-hit team of writer Adam McGovern and artist/creator Paolo Leandri (Dr. Id, The Next Issue Project), along with sought-after color artist Dominic Regan (Paul Pope's One Trick Rip-Off) channel pop-art comic classics with postmodern humor, in a unique mashup of vampire romance, gothic tragedy and supernatural heroics.
  • This meta-monster-movie tale of wayward souls in a death-race on the road to redemption is B-movie psychodrama at its best Now readers can see the entire saga that the A.V. Club's Oliver Sava called "stunning," Multiversity Comics' Michelle White said is "the right way to do old-fashioned horror," and Comic Bastards' Kimberly Gibson called it "a breath of fresh hell fire." This edition contains never-seen prototypes and unique looks at the creative process, with character designs, pages from an unused version, alternate cover sketches, script development and commentary from the creators. All adding to the comic that's been compared to everything from Edgar Allan Poe to Jack Kirby
