Called by the Los Angeles Reader the finest example of graphic story telling they’ve seen. This is the saga of one man thirsting to conquer an empire against a ruler who tried to appease both his subjects and his gods. Cortez’s arrival had been foretold by the superstitious Aztecs, but by the time they had discovered he in fact, was not the true God, it was too late. For Cortez had on his side, the belief in the three things at the time that mattered most in life – the King, God, and Gold.
Written by Brent Truax with art by Mitch Waxman, Russell Braun, and Daniel Rivera.
Black and White. DIAMOND # SEP171416 $10.99.
A Gothic tale that takes its title from a peculiar ruin in S. Callisto Square in Rome. Some say it was placed there by the Devil himself, behind the Pope’s palace, to become his throne. During the twelfth century, it was a place of orgies and black masses that inspired prophecies and easy healing. This is the stage where Alberto Militelli conducts his so called esoteric rituals. But he only pretends to be a sorcerer: for he simply has found his way to get rich and affluent. But his rise to the top is quick, as will be his downfall. For his game has bothered his Master and his worst enemy: the Devil himself.
Written by Alberto Conte with art by Luca Rossi and Romina Denti.
