In the intricate woods teeming with nightmares and apparitions, ranger Ryoko has to face her past, but this time her faith is lacking. Portia, the suicidal young woman, has to face a vital decision. Although in any case, the forest calls them both, and will not cease to call them until keeping them both into its dark heart.
This miniseries is the sequel of the acclaimed graphic novel The Suicide Forest, written by El Torres with art by Gabriel Walta, masterfully written by Desiree Bressend with the artwork by Ruben Gil, but it can be read independently. And this time, a Retailer incentive cover, served 1:10, by Pasqual Ferry!
“Bressend and Gil play with the codes of horror by searching outside the genre.”
“Desiree is able to bring us this whole idea behind the story and tell it like it’s this beautifully horrific lullaby that sings off the page.”
—Steven Leitman, Reading with a Flight Ring
Toni Fejzula (Dark Horse’s Dead Inside, Veil…) has created the covers of the miniseries, a set of five connected covers!

Acclaimed Spanish artist Irene Roga brings an independent, non-canon Rogues tale! In a time beyond our memories, war roared endlessly. When the Bewitched King attacks the kingdom of Beth-mos, the legendary Blade of Heaven becomes the last hope for the humankind. But for Weasel, there’s nothing more important as the Brotherhood of Warriors!
Irene Roga, born in Madrid and raised in the south of Spain, her biggest influences were the European and Japanese comics and animation. She has published several works in Spain and USA, illustrated books for children, magazines, advertising and mobile apps.
Each month, we will present a book with a different team. Some stories take place in the Rogues continuity, but others are “Elseworlds”. We just wanted to give our creators complete freedom to show how cool their stories and their skills are!

From the master of Horror El Torres and art by Jaime Martínez! Self-exiled priest John Brennan, a troubled exorcist, is summoned to Rome to stop an ancient evil spreading within the Holy See itself. A revolutionary story about possessions and exorcisms, with ties to the church’s shady past, and a man, almost helpless and alone before the evil that would bring the end of the Catholic church.
This volume collects the acclaimed four-issue horror miniseries ROMAN RITUAL, published by AMIGO COMICS.
“Roman Ritual has an excellent pacing that uncomfortably keeps you mesmerized and eagerly turning the page. ”
–Mike Peluso, ComicMonsters
“I love horror comics. They are primarily what I collect. The more horrific the better. I picked up one this week that was incredible. Roman Ritual.”
-Comics Heating Up
“Infused with human drama and the supernatural element, Roman Ritual is the best book you aren’t reading!”
-Steven Leitman, IndieComix
“By the time you get to this end of this book, you will be wanting more. If you are a fan of the supernatural and horror genres, you will enjoy this book. Help support the suppression of evil and put this book on your pull list.”
“El Torres is perhaps the most underrated horror comic writer working today. He comes at every subject he takes on with an edge that’s sharp and deadly that you never quite see coming. Roman Ritual is no exception.”
–Stephanie S. Gray, Horror Network
