Preview: Image Comics’ new Hell to Pay swaps stealing souls for a little fortune and glory

Fortune, glory, and hell itself; get a look at the new Image book that’s being called “Hellboy meets Indiana Jones”. Hell to Pay hits this November.

Hellish delights

When you compare yourself to names like “Hellboy” and “Indiana Jones”, you better be able to back that up. From what we’ve seen of Image Comics’ Hell to Pay though, it looks like the new comic might just be not he right track.

From writer Charles Soule and artist Will Sliney, Hell to Pay casts the dark dimension of hell as a very different place than most of us might be used to. As the first preview of the opening issue explains, this version of hell doesn’t have a religious connection. Instead, it’s filled with all manner of creatures that act, well, more like people.

And that includes a desire not for souls, but money.

In Hell to Pay, readers meet married young couple Maia and Sebastian Stone. Years ago, they made a deal with the mysterious Shrouded College to give them magic… but they incurred a debt. Until it’s paid, their lives are not their own. Maia and Sebastian have worked for the College ever since, using their new abilities to track down 666 cursed coins: qurrakh…aka, the Devil’s Dollar. Only a few remain. The Stones are almost free…but the devil’s in the details.
