Puppy hiatus! Reruns daily; new comics restart 1 January 2019
The Death CastStrips in this theme: [First | Latest]
DeathWell, actually a Death. There are Deaths for all sorts of different fatal events. The one we usually encounter seems to be stuck in menial jobs enforcing the sort of deaths that only occur under really stupid circumstances. Funny that. He started employment as Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs, but has been demoted, fired, rehired, redemoted, reredemoted, and reinstated.
Death of Choking On A Giant FrogThis guy is one of the work rivals of the former Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs. He's a smarmy, highly competitive sort of guy, who will do anything to get ahead in the business. He's taken the radical step of not using a scythe in his work, seeing it as a relic of old-fashioned management principles.
Head DeathDeath, being a bureaucracy, needs supervisors. The Head Death wears a purple robe to mark his rank, and constantly promotes and demotes the other Deaths based on their job performance. His office is in the middle of an infinite featureless grey plane, which can only be navigated successfully by non-mortals.
Death of Being Ground By A Mars Rover Rock Abrasion ToolAfter a really long time waiting for some action, this Death finally got his chance. Having done such a good job, he was promoted to the demanding Insanely Overpowered Fireballs portfolio, albeit briefly. This Death wears a cool space helmet (so he can breathe on Mars, of course) and carries a big gun.
Death of Being Wrestled To Death By SteveThis Death usurped Fireballs' plan to redeem himself when demoted to Living For Over 900 Years. Unfortunately, he ended up being wrestled to death by Steve, precipitating a major metaphysical cleanup operation. He seems to have recovered though.
Death of Inhaling Hatmaking ChemicalsThis Death made a low-key debut as part of the Death strike picket line. He has a Cockney accent, but wears a fine top hat because, as he says, "The class system's dead, guv."
Death of Drowning In A Reactor PoolThis Death supervised Dr No's demise in the James Stud theme. He has a nice green radioactive glow. It's handy for reading at night.
CharonCharon is the Ferryman of the Underworld, who carries dead souls across the river Acheron to Hades. He demands a coin for passage, but isn't too fussed if you don't happen to have any spare change on you. His role in the greater organisation of Death is mysteriously unclear...
Death Scorecard The Deaths change assignments a lot, and I've ended up confused as to what they're all doing at times. So here's a scorecard.
