I'm thinking this is the cover Dante had in mind when he wrote the book  
Because, after all, what is _INFERNO_ but a blood-and-gore-soaked tortured-soul-butt-kicking armored man's descent through the seven circles of Hell? With poetry.

That's...intense. Fascinating.

The video game trailer (at the website) is pretty intense too...

Dante. Taking Names. Kicking Butt. All to rescue his wife.

I wonder how much of the original text they kept (ha ha).

Next up: the movie!

The sequels, Purgatorio and Paradiso, ought to be interesting, especially Paradiso. I'll be amused if Vergil is still the guide...

Funny thing: when I googled "Dante's Inferno" the video game site was first in the search results!

Makes me want to re-read the book...
