Synopsis

During the making of the film, "The Gladiator," Sandra discovers the Trumpet of Dis among other real Roman artifacts to be used in the movie. When she learns that, by blowing the trumpet, she'll come under the spell of the ancient Roman god Dis and will share his powers, she decides to blow it and get revenge on the other cast members who do not want her to star in the film.

Notes

Page correction from 6 pages to 7 pages by Craig Delich.

Inker credit by Craig Delich.

The Roman god, Dis, was believed by the Romans to be the ruler of the infernal regions, and the Romans would surrender a bride to him each year to win the mercies of this grim deity.
