If a priest from the
future wanted to rid the world of sin, where would he go to meet Satan?
One of the first appearances of the fallen angel in antiquity! Dante Aligheri's The Devine Comedy!
Dante, in detail, explains encountering the great Lucifer before descending down his back at the end of Inferno...hmmmm" then the ideas started to flow. This is the end result.
Stelle, latin for "stars", is the telling of a man's journey through the depths of hell to encounter the "Evil All." Told in first person and drawn in traditional Japanese manga, we follow Dante (or is he?) through the 9+1 realms of hell proper on his journey. The book is delivered in a precise number of pages to coincide with the number allegories found in the original poem. The twist at the end is of my own concoction and has been met with great shock, awe, and befuddlement before, ultimately, realization of one's direct actions.
In this book you will encounter biblical giants like Nimrod, monsters Cerebus and Geryon, ferrymen Charon and Phlegyas, the sodomites, the usurpers, the thieves and the fortune tellers and many other characters and depictions of sin. All in wonderful manga black and white with color where it is needed!
