On a futuristic earthlike world, in the vast, technologically overrun megalopolis of SIVARSI 9, citizens live what seems to be a utopian existence.
But Anton "Prince" Prosper, last scion of a fabulously wealthy, morally bankrupt dynasty, lusts for more. A scientific genius secluded from the world on his own private island, Prosper dedicates his giften young mind to perfecting the science of nanotachnology. His goal: eternal youth and immortality.
Aiding Prosper in his quest is his stunning assistant Steffan Kabala. Their intensely erotic, volatile relationship explodes in an act of bitter revenge amid the decadent delights of the most glamorous and sinister masked ball ever held.
Originally published as an animated web comic, this is the first appearance of the entire tale in print. Wendy Pini's adaptation of Poe's short story as a darkly erotic, science fiction techno-thriller represents a distinct change of pace for the best-selling artist-writer of "Elfquest."
