Created by the father and son team of Weston Cage and acclaimed actor Nicolas Cage (Ghost Rider; The Rock; National Treasure) and written by Mike Carey (Untouchable, Lucifer, Unwritten) with artwork by Dean Hyrapiet (Buddha, Virulents, Dead Soldier). Shadows can cloak the mysteries of the past, the deeds tat should be forgotten, and the mistakes that are not meant to be ignored. But some shadows cannot be held in the darkness for long, for some have a story to tell… Gabriel Moore is no ordinary child. He's not really living... but he's not really dead, either. In 1860, the plantation of union sympathizer Mason Moore is burned to the ground by secessionists. In the battle, Moore's illegitimate son is killed, but as he gasps his last breaths, a voodoo bokor casts a spell on him. The bokor cannot save Gabriel from death entirely, but puts the boys spirit in limbo where he must wait until someone can summon him. Centuries later, Gabriel re-emerges, but he’s no longer a mere boy – he’s a Voodoo Child. And he’s got some unfinished business to attend to… “The art gives it a dark, scary gloss that sticks out as a nice change from the flood of zombie and vampire tales that make up most of the horror genre.” - Variety "Nicolas Cage loves comic books so much, he created one of his own." - USA Today "Each book is filled with great dialogue and excellent storytelling." - Geeks of Doom "This is storytelling that draws you in with ghouls that are involving to watch and gets under your skin with monstrosities that aren't so easily escaped. (4.5 out of 5 stars)" - Comic Critique "It's got an anti-hero who doesn't mind getting a bit bloody while trying to avenge his family. (Mike) Carey is starting to climb my chart of competent writers, and I fully expect more reading from this title. (4.5 out of 5 Stars)" - Comics Bulletin

A mysterious man in a mysterious city...a city of corruption…fueled by sin…and justice is independent of the laws. At the heart of the netherworld is the city of Inferno...a sprawling, endless mass made up of fragments of every earthly city that ever existed. Its inhabitants are the damned, the desperate...those whom redemption cannot touch. When John Travis is murdered, it is the Inferno that his spirit comes to. But it’s all a mistake...Travis’ killers were looking for someone else. Now Travis finds himself both pawn and prize in a game he doesn’t understand and the stakes include both his immortal soul and his memory of past life. Travis has his allies, of course, including the prophet Nostradamus and the woman Shule Borraial. Together they’re prepared to risk their own souls to get Travis back into the city in one piece. But why do they claim to have met Travis before? And why did someone have him killed? Inferno is more than the saga of a loner trying to make sense of a strange and terrifying world in which he is thrown into. It is the story of the city itself which seems to permeate its own evil life through the streets and all of its inhabitants. Can one man make a difference?
