Haunting Vision

Faust, in search of knowledge, makes a deal with Mephistopheles. And what a deal it was. Goethe wrote about it over a period of 60 years. Artists were inspired to illuminate the tale of a man who sells his soul. August von Kreling was one of the most successful to do so with this haunting vision.

Don't tell me you wouldn't sell your soul for a long box of mint golden age comix.
