In the years following World War III, a new and
powerful faith has arisen from a scorched and poisoned
Earth, a faith that embraces the architect of world
wide devastation. The Servants of Wrath have deified
Carlton Lufteufel and re-christened him the Deus Irae.
In the small community of Charlottesville, Utah, Tibor McMasters, born without arms or legs,
has, through an array of prostheses, established a far-reaching reputation as an inspired painter.
When the new church commissions a grand mural depicting the Deus Irae, it falls upon
Tibor to make a treacherous journey to find the man, to find the god, and capture his terrible visage for posterity.
