Infernal Comic Magazine Series
in the process of planning Dante's Hell Documentaries, we felt the need of having more visual material than
the one everybody knows, and sometimes not well interpreted.
So, Dante's Hell comic magazine was an idea
which was born early in 2007, after producer Boris Acosta met Avetik Balaian, who asked for a chance
in the development of Dante's Hell magazine
in 2007 Boris Acosta presented his vision of
the magazine series to Avetik Balaian, and both
started working together. They agreed on something crucial,
that Dante's Divine Comedy must be ketp to Dante's own vision and that the changes will only be made on
the vocabulary to make easier for children
to understand Dante's poem.
website, then, was born to explain the process and to
later market the magazine series, www.DantesInfernoComics.com . Boris Acosta and Avetik Balaian continued
working on the project, after they stopped for a while
to produce a book of images, which was important for the
documentaries, and later the animation films. Then, we
learnt that this company based in San Francisco was stealing
the idea of producing their own Dante's Inferno series
of magazines, so we decided not to update the comic magazines
website with the new images. The website is currently
as it was created in 2007 and updated later during the
same year and part of 2008.
is a long process to adapt a classic while respecting
the story itself as much as possible. However, this can
only be accomplished by true artists that respect other
artists' works instead of producing false stories and
false adaptations for pure greed.
