I didn't like this much. The art was very black and murky with scribbly lines everywhere. Very hard to make out what is being pictured. The story is very violent but a bit of a mess mixing typical plot tropes all together, Romans in the Alps, some mountain men ask them to rescue a kidnapped niece, there's a gypsy with her superstitious ways, the Romans call on their gods, there are flying creatures of hell and finally a demon who influenced all this just to find the holy cup of the Nazarene (Holy Grail). Tons of violent imagery with skeletons and body parts stacked everywhere, but no character development brings little feeling for any of the participants. OK if you're just looking for a gorefest.
