From the pen of comics legend P. Craig Russell (Elric: Stormbringer, Sandman) comes an epic as enduring as time itself! Russell continues his masterful adaptation of Richard Wagner's epic cycle, The Ring of the Nibelung. In this installment, a handsome and forlorn stranger in need of help comes upon a house in the middle of a dark wood. Who this stranger is and what brought him here forms a mysterious question that the woman of the house is compelled to answer -- which, in turn, may drive her husband to murder. But the stranger is more than he seems, as are all those connected with the cursed Ring!
