David Lapham delivers another blood drenched chapter in the saga of the most feared Roman Emperor of all time, Caligula! A young boy, once naive to the hedonistic ways of the Roman upper class, finds that the only way to kill a god is to learn all of its secrets. But there is only so much slaughter and suffering that a soul can endure? even one bent on avenging the murder of his parents. A modern master of horror, Lapham will take you into the darkest corners of the soul and reveal the madness within. Hot new talent, German Nobile, illustrates this no-holds-barred ride down the road to Hell.
