is either six issues of a comic book
, or half of a graphic novel
about a fellow named Stig who is killed by a possessed
piano, goes to Hell
, and, well, suffice it to say that antics ensue
. The art is black and white
, but incredibly detailed
. The word spectacular
would not be out of place, nor would surreal
It is an absolutely fabulous comic. If you search for "Stig's Inferno" with your favorite internet search engine, a surprisingly large number of matches are from various "best of all time" lists, and many of those not in English. If you can find a copy (which I'm guessing you can't) read it.
If you imagine Dante's Inferno re-written by Douglas Adams in comic book form, you might get a vague inkling of what's in store, but not really.
