    Death and Agatha McMurray

    Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid

    Panel 1: An open apartment window. The breeze moves a curtain, gently.

    Panel 2: AGATHA, in comfy clothes, carries a large bowl of popcorn.

    AGATHA

    Munch, munch, munch.

    Panel 3: AGATHA clicks a button on the remote control.

    AGATHA

    Munch, munch, munch.

    Panel 4: AGATHA sits on her couch, in front of the tv eating her popcorn. She chokes on her snack, and dies.

    AGATHA

    Munch, munch, munch, munch. Choke.

    Panel 5: The moment AGATHA dies, DEATH arrives. She berates him for making her wait. DEATH checks his watch, but doesn’t respond.

    AGATHA

    Finally! What took you so long?!

    Panel 6: DEATH escorts the fuming AGATHA away.

    AGATHA

    This life was stupid! A lousy education, a boring job. I was miserable all of the time! All I wanted to do was make art. But I had no confidence! I took no chances! Nothing!

    Panel 7: AGATHA, still ranting.

    AGATHA

    I want to lodge a formal complaint! Who’s in charge here, anyway? Do you have a manager? My next life better be an improvement over this one, or there’ll be hell to pay!

    Panel 8: AGATHA and DEATH are gone. The apartment is empty.

    Panel 9: The popcorn sits quietly on the arm of the couch.

    Panel 9: Suddenly, DEATH pops back into frame. He grabs a hand full of popcorn. He apparently kind of loves popcorn.

    DEATH

    Mmm…

    Panel 10: DEATH exits, leaving a trail of popcorn behind.

    DEATH

    Munch, munch, munch.

    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.

    OLD MAN

    You’re him, aren’t you?

    DEATH

    I am death.

    Panel 2: The OLD MAN and DEATH stand together, in conversation.

    OLD MAN

    Where’s the robe? Where’s the scythe?

    DEATH

    Oh, uh…I’m trying something new.

    Panel 3

    OLD MAN

    Well, it sucks.

    DEATH

    That’s harsh.

    Panel 4: The mailbox sits quietly nearby, flag up, ready to be emptied.

    OLD MAN

    Did I hurt your little feelings? Is wee Death going to cry? Boo hoo!

    Death

    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.

    OLD MAN

    He lied! HA HA HA HA HA

    DEATH

    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.

    OLD MAN

    You enjoyed that, didn’t you?

    DEATH

    Not as much as this next bit.

    Panel 7: The world slips away slowly from the ghost of the OLD MAN and DEATH.

    OLD MAN

    Why? What’s the next bit?

    DEATH

    It’s nothing.

    Panel 8: Nothing.
