I Am Death
Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid
Panel 1: An OLD MAN, and DEATH stand together to the side of a old farm house, somewhere in the country.
You’re him, aren’t you?
I am death.
Panel 2: The OLD MAN and DEATH stand together, in conversation.
Where’s the robe? Where’s the scythe?
Oh, uh…I’m trying something new.
Well, it sucks.
Panel 4: The mailbox sits quietly nearby, flag up, ready to be emptied.
Did I hurt your little feelings? Is wee Death going to cry? Boo hoo!
The kid in the shop said I looked cool.
Panel 5: The stone chimney of the old house stands patiently, awaiting the smoke from a warm winter fire.
He lied! HA HA HA HA HA
I’m beginning to understand why your wife poisoned your tea.
Panel 6: The ghost of the OLD MAN and DEATH look casually on, over the corpse of the now dead OLD MAN.
You enjoyed that, didn’t you?
Not as much as this next bit.
Panel 7: The world slips away slowly from the ghost of the OLD MAN and DEATH.
Why? What’s the next bit?
Panel 8: Nothing.
