A PREMIER COMIC AND GRAPHIC NOVEL PUBLISHER
Mike Carey's work spans comics, novels, film scripts, and TV shows. After writing shorts for British sci-fi comic 2000 AD and a few one-shots for Caliber Comics during the 1990s, he was offered DC/Vertigo’s Lucifer — henceforth the longest running and most successful Sandman-related spinoff to date. While continuing to work with DC on Vertigo series like Crossing Midnight and graphic novels like God Save The Queen, he took over as lead writer for Marvel’s X-Men in 2006. His work includes DC/Vertigo’s Hellblazer, Marvel’s Ultimate Fantastic Four, the Felix Castor novels, The Steel Seraglio (with Linda and Louise Carey), and DC/Vertigo’s The Unwritten (with Peter Gross).
Michael Gaydos’ most recent work has been gallery exhibitions but he established himself in various other artistic channels such as the illustrated word and the graphic novel. His list of credits include work for Marvel, DC, Virgin, Dark Horse, Fox Atomic, Image, IDW, Tundra, NBM, Caliber and White Wolf among others. In comics, he is best known for Daredevil and Alias.

A mysterious man in a mysterious city...
A city infested with corruption...fueled by sin...and justice is independent of the laws.
At the heart of the netherworld is the city called 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 to Inferno that his spirit comes. 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 a 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 they 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?
