The story is simple at a glance, but very thought provoking.The Lord and Lady of Purgatory unleash a War to gain control of Hell. With an army very sci-fi looking troopers armed with power armor and laser guns, they take a foot hold in the most crowded portion of Hell. And bring to the population the one thing denied to them by the current ruler, and even God himself. Hope. Every evil being on Earth, and any who have fiddled with the dark arts are called to Hell to combat the invasion, while the magical beings who have stayed pure are left to make up their minds. Stop the war, or side with the ones who can bring them an end to their debts and suffering?
The artwork is dark, gritty, and just damn disturbing. Hell is a ruined, twisted version of Earth. The inhabitants are grotesque rotting, monsters. The level of violence is just as grand as the story. (complete with loss of limbs, lips being bitten off, and oceans of blood!)
