Wretchedly illustrated the book is saved by a decent story. Guy Roberts is a horror writer. He's had three books that did very well and several that were paperbacks. Guy suffers from writers block and see's that as a sort of Hell. One day he is invited to the Rocklynn Institute to be a consultant for paranormal research. He is offered $100,000 to participate as an advisor and historical scribe to witness Dr. Keith and Dr. Ross attempt to summon a demonic entity. The goal is to be able to trap a minor demon and then conduct scientific research on it to ascertain the nature of demons. The Ritual known as Richalmus Ritual is performed by Dr. Ross in order to draw in the demon and trap it in a pentagram. If the pentagram is unable to hold they have an emergency switch that drops a glass cage onto the demon. Well once the ritual is complete nothing seems to have happened. Yet Roberts is convinced he felt something during the ritual. Confused, Dr. Keith looks over the ritual and is shocked to discover Dr. Ross has read the wrong incantation. Now, one would think that she would know what incantation was what, but apparently not. The ritual she actually performed was called Georgiso's Incantation of the Devil. Soon they realize that there IS something in the room with them. As the lines on the pentagram begin to wiggle and a cloven hoof print forms on the chalk dust, Roberts is able to drop the cage and trap the Devil. Yet, now that they have him-what are they going to do with him? The rest of the story is with each of the main characters Dr. Keith, Dr. Ross and Roberts all fall under the malign influence of the Devil and will attempt to free him. It is an interesting look at how certain people fall to the Devil and in what ways. Just as each of the three view the Devil in a different sight (one see's him as dressed in red, the other as a serpent, etc), they each fall under it's power. Each time Roberts is able to exorcise the influence. Eventually he also falls into the influence of the Devil who wants him to open the portals of Hell and summon a vast horde of demons. Roberts finally is able to trick the Devil and is able to banish him. Want to know how? Read the book. The art was not to my liking. Shame really, this book could have used a good complementary art style to the written words. In lacking a good visual representation one ends up focusing on the written story more. Sadly the written story while good can not support this format by itself. Just certain elements in the plot make this just a 3 star story. Had the visuals backed up the story more then it would have helped. But on its own the story of three people's struggle with the Devil and them making the same mistakes (why do they keep confronting the thing alone? 2 people should be in the room at ALL times) and the Devil's susceptibility to common exorcisms make what is a truly wonderful idea fall a little flat. Still an interesting GN. With better art and a slightly more imaginative plot this could have been a classic.

    Hell on Earth was originally published in Weird Tales (where else) back in 1942. DC made a number of these thin volumes of graphic adaptations of old Sci-Fi classics in the 1980s with varying degrees of success. A horror writer is paid $100,000 to be part of an experiment to determine through scientific principles if magic is real. It is and through misadventure the scientists, his assistant, and the writer accidentally conjure up the living devil whom they trap under a protective glass (similar Hell on Earth was originally published in Weird Tales (where else) back in 1942.

A horror writer is paid $100,000 to be part of an experiment to determine through scientific principles if magic is real. It is and through misadventure the scientists, his assistant, and the writer accidentally conjure up the living devil whom they trap under a protective glass (similar to Dream in the first issue of Sandman). The next question is, what to do with the creature? One by one, the participants in the experiment succumbs to the Devil’s power. For those familiar with the story it may seem that 48 pages isn’t enough space for this tale. However the format of this book is larger than usual. Each page has a 16 panel grid, which was necessary to accommodate a faithful adaptation of the story. And they succeeded. Visually this was a stunning work that pumped new life into an old classic that nobody remembers.

    A corny, dated story about using science to summon Satan, which is worthy of interest for the deeply formalist, nearly semiotic approach to the visuals - some fascinating design and illustration used for faintly ridiculous ends, which is nothing new for readers who like to dwell on the fringes of mainstream comics.
