A deconsecrated church in the remote hamlet of Ffestiniog is the scene of a remarkable discovery: a fresco has come to light which depicts “The martyrdom of Saint Sebastian” painted by Hyeronimus Quail, an artist who earned himself the nickname of “Painter of Death Agony” because he only ever portrayed dying figures, illustrating their sufferings with unusual realism. There are many, in town, who fear that Quail has come back in search of new pictorial inspiration… And so, the mayor of Ffestiniog hires Dylan Dog to look into the case, but also to demonstrate that the gruesome stories and whispered rumors about Quail are nothing but a pack of lies…
