The toes in the foreground or the orange, my eyes bounce between them; very eerie. This is a wonderfully horrible scene. Great work!

This is a very powerful, disturbing image...almost too much for a comic book I feel. Superb work none the less.

There were little touches I likes that I found interesting.

Like the hanged man in the immediate foreground is wearing pinstriped pants. Also, all the hanged men are dressed in what look to be the remains of formal attire.

It brings up so many questions; I feel like the two hunters.

Cheers, Mr. Palumbo.

like two hunters walking into a ring of hanging corpses? I have to warn you, there's a reason I paint pictures instead of write books ;)
