SIN ETERNAL: Return to Dante's Inferno

Posted by Decapitated Dan on 7:26 PM


"Abandon Hope....All That Enter Here!"

A man finds himself lost…until he is led into the very depths of Hell itself. And he wonders, as he observes the terrible fates of the sinners…what could be in store for him?

Sin Eternal is more than just a re-tooling of the immortal classic, Dante’s Inferno. It plants itself firmly in the modern world and away from the political crimes that dominated Dante’s work. The story covers the travels of the man who is sent to hell to examine the various torments and punishments that the sinners of Earth are forced to face each moment of eternity. From the slovenly gluttons to the fates of the suicides, from the heretics to the thieves, a variety of different levels are covered.

Basing the structure of the underworld on Dante’s classic epic, elements of Paradise Lost by Milton are also mixed in this story that transcends religious beliefs. Set up in the unique style found often in mythological literature, Sin Eternal approaches the subject matter delicately. The elements of the underworld have been brought up to present day to include modern crimes and de-emphasize the religious and political crimes that Dante based most of his torments on.

 EACH LEVEL OF HELL IS ILLUSTRATED BY A DIFFERENT ARTIST.

Galen Showman is the continuity artist that handles the scenes between the various levels.  Some of the artists included in Sin Eternal are:  VINCE LOCKE, MICHAEL LARK, JIM CALAFIORE, GUY DAVIS, DALIBOR TALIJAC, MARK BLOODWORTH, NATE PRIDE, DAVID MACK,  and many others.

Sin Eternal is a compilation of the five issue mini-series, Sinergy, originally released from Caliber Comics with about 20 new pages.
