Good comic- it involves a hair raising story about a man and an ancient statue frozen in ice. It's set during the Roman period.

If you're familiar with Fellini's version of Satyricon, this graphic adaptation of the fragmentary text captures the same midnight strangeness of the film. It does Fellini one better, however, by offering a more coherent storyline. The art is masterful, reminiscent of underground cartoonist Frank Stack.
