Joe, a notorious gangster and killer in the late 1920’s New York, was finally killed in a shoot-out with the cops. He finally ended up in Hell and met up with some of his gang buddies, some who were killed in previous gun battles, as well as a few of Hell’s inmates whom he befriended.
Having been allocated work in one of the factories producing clothes for Hell’s army, Joe decided this was no place for him and he made up his mind to do whatever possible to get back to Earth. He secretly brought his friends together and they formulated various plans that might get them out of Hell and back to Earth.
Gregor, one of the Enforcers of Hell, took a special interest in Joe and his friends and gave them a hard time. Time and again when they embarked on their numerous escape attempts they got caught and punished. During the last attempt they got caught and sentenced to the ‘outback’ to spend their sentence amongst the stinking sulphur pits, but Joe and his friends overcame their guard (Idi Amin) and managed to get back, only to be brought before the management of Hell and be sentenced harshly.
The executives of Hell were in the final stages of planning for the war against God and they couldn’t afford anything going wrong. When Joe and his mates started rocking the boat these executives began to get very jittery and the CEO (Hitler) issued instructions that security had to tightened up to the limit. No rebellious behaviour would be allowed or tolerated!
When Joe, who didn’t know when to give up, organised a general strike in the many huge factories as well as in the army, all hell broke loose! This was serious business and Joe was finally identified as the ringleader of the conspiracy. He escaped down into the never-ending Dimension Spiral that has many doors leading to all sorts of intersting and sometimes terrifying dimensions. He finally arrived in the dimension of ‘nothingness’, that had no way out, and after nearly loosing his mind he was met by one of the senior security agents of God’s dimension, who was actually waiting for him to arrive!
Joe was taken through the magical portal into God’s dimension and he marveled at the wonders he saw. Eventually, after being introduced to the top executives and closely questioned he was brought before the arch angels who were aware of his efforts to get back to Earth, as well as the mayhem he had caused in Hell. They made Joe an offer he could hardly refuse. After he accepted their proposals they magically transported him back in time to the factory where he was stationed. This caused major confusion in Hell, as the alarms had gone off when the door to Hades had been opened, and it was impossible to explain who had actually escaped, seeing as no one was missing!
Joe had a hard time convincing his friends that what had happened to him was actually true, but in the end they accepted it. Joe decided on a plan of revenge against the few evil crooked cops who had taken bribes and then double-crossed them during the time he was still in the gang on Earth, but even that last plan of his mis-fired and Joe, together with his friends had to escape. God’s agents and top executives plan Joe’s escape and with seconds to spare he and his friends enter the machine that takes them back to Earth, where they had contracted to do work for God. Failure to stick to their contract would result in them being sent back to Hell!
