In 1934, Art Young created his satirical take on Dante's Inferno, producing not just one of the most searing indictments of capitalism ever published but also an exquisite work of art. Capitalist oligarchs, condemned to Hell, lead a hostile takeover, throw out Satan, and turn the Inferno into the last bastion of the free market. Each page of Young's art has been scanned from the original art and is reproduced here in full color. Inferno also includes a new introduction by Steven Heller, a foreword by editor Glenn Bray, and the original 1934 essays by Young himself.
