Her Infernal Descent is about a middle-aged mother who ventures through the nine circles of hell in attempt to get her family back,” said Nadler. “However, looking below the surface reveals that it’s about a lot more than that. It’s partially a response to Dante’s Inferno, rewriting it and exploring and updating the famous nine circles of hell for a modern audience.”

Thompson added, “Lonnie and I both have strong relationships to our mothers, so we thought what better tribute than sending a middle aged mom into something horrific and harrowing… It’s deeply personal and completely surreal. I couldn’t be more proud of this insane book and I’m so excited to share it with people.”

A tale of loss told in five parts. Any good mom would march through the inferno of HELL to get her family back.

Unable to cope with the burden of grief, a middle-aged mom descends the nine circles of hell to retrieve her forsaken family. Guided by the ghosts of William Blake and Agatha Christie, this no-nonsense mother journeys deep into a bizarre underworld filled with celebrity sinners, surreal landscapes, and absurd tasks. HER INFERNAL DESCENT is a retelling of Dante’s Inferno that updates the themes for a modern audience.

From the writers of the break-out hit The Dregs, and the artist of Roche Limit, this is HELL like youve never seen before.

What is FOC?
Final Order Cutoff (FOC) is the last day comic book stores have to adjust orders before a book goes to print. For independent publishers, this is a very important day. If a book is marketed properly and has generated a word of mouth buzz, this will encourage readers to add books to his or her pull-list before the FOC. The FOC for Her Infernal Descent is Monday, March 26. If you like what you see in the preview; call, email, and or text your local comic book store before then
