They thought the mad emperor, Caligula was destroyed. But his evil lives on, hiding in plain sight in the body of lucky "Felix." Now good Laurentius must track down the demon to stop the slaughter in the streets and to avenge his wife's death. But the demon is not alone this time. It seems that others with hellish powers have risen up and are shaping the world of the new ruling class. Even young Nero, his son, has a demonic influence changing the boy and directing him to take up the grievous excesses of his father. The modern master of horror, David Lapham (Crossed Vol. 2 & 3, Stray Bullets, Dan the Unharmable), joins talented painter German Nobile in a descent into the darkest corners of Rome's history.
