Wenn es um Rache geht, steckt der Teufel im Detail ... Völlig verkatert schaut Ig Perrish morgens in den Spiegel: Ihm wachsen Teufelshörner aus der Stirn! Was hat er in der Nacht zuvor getrieben? Dabei hat er schon sein Fegefeuer durchlebt, weil ihm niemand glaubt, dass er nichts mit der grausamen Ermordung seiner Freundin zu tun hat. Als Ig sich auf die Suche nach dem wahren Übeltäter macht, ist auf einmal die Hölle los ... Ig Perrish führt ein privilegiertes Leben. Als Sohn eines berühmten Vaters und Bruder eines TV-Stars wächst er in einem Hort des Wohlstands und der Glückseligkeit auf. Und er hat Merrin, mit der er den Zauber der unendlichen Liebe erlebt. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem Merrin unter ungeklärten Umständen bestialisch ermordet wird und der Verdacht auf ihn fällt. Mangels Beweisen wird er aber freigesprochen. Eines Morgens wacht Ig nach einer durchzechten, erinnerungslosen Nacht mit Teufelshörnern auf der Stirn auf. Mehr noch: Auf einmal besitzt er die unheimliche Gabe, die dunkelsten Geheimnisse und verborgensten Gelüste derjenigen zu kennen, die er berührt. Diese neue Macht will er nutzen, um den Übeltäter zu finden, der Merrin umgebracht und sein Leben zerstört hat. Alles Gutsein und Beten hat nichts geholfen, jetzt ist es an der Zeit, einen Pakt mit dem Bösen zu schliessen und teuflische Rache zu nehmen ... Joe Hill wurde 1972 in Neuengland geboren.

Alle Bildgeschichten arbeiten im Prinzip mit demselben bildlichen Inventar, seien sie komplex oder simpel, westlicher oder östlicher Herkunft, klassisch oder hybrid. Dieses Buch bietet eine Systematisierung des Mediums Comic und eine Analyse seiner Erzählform. Der Autor isoliert, beschreibt und untersucht die Elemente von Comics, um dann ihr Zusammenwirken bestimmen zu können. Auf diese Weise wird die zugrunde liegende Funktionsweise aller Bildgeschichten deutlich – zugleich aber auch die Varianz, die individuelle Bildgeschichten aufweisen. Die zweite Auflage wurde überarbeitet und erweitert. Ein erfreulich verständlich geschriebenes Buch, das beinahe jeden Aspekt des Mediums Comic berücksichtigt.« (kino-zeit.de)
