The first issue of the Dante's Inferno comic book miniseries is out now. The comic, based on a game, which is based on an epic poem, which is based on a vision, is penned by Christo Gage (X-Men/Spiderman, Wildcats) and illustrated by Diego Latorre (The Incredible Hulk). This issue details Beatrice's murder and Dante's descent into hell to save her soul, which definitely does not happen in the original work.

“We’ve been incredibly lucky to get the talented artists of WildStorm to contribute their inspired craft to the Dante’s Inferno epic,” says Dante’s Inferno senior producer, Justin Lambros. “The vivid artwork from Diego Latorre just screams out of the page, and Christo Gage’s thoughtful words breathe life and give soul to Dante and Beatrice.  We can’t wait to see what gamers think of the comic, and we think comic fans will love the game once it hits stores on February 9.”
