War was last seen in What Is It Good For; Death, in Ghosts of Iscariot Past; and they haven’t gotten to hang out together since way back when.

Please note: No matter how many fish I put in, the rest of this storyline can’t avoid being bloody, painful, and generally tragic. If you have a weak stomach, or like Seras and Pip a lot, you may want to skip to next Sunday, when the action switches gears from “dismember-y” to “flashback-y.” And if you have severe triggers, you might be better off just skipping the rest of the storyline altogether.

War: Admit it…this is better than cable.

I would like to mention again that I find it strange that Gaimen’s death would be eating popcorn as people try and kill each other. She’s never shown enjoyment in her work, just that she is what she is. Death. That and trying to make it less traumatic immediately afterward.

I hope I don’t sound harsh or judgmental. I don’t mean to be. I love this comic and I love your art. You make a wonderful story. It’s just Death treating all this like a show seems… off to me.

All that aside, HIT HER AGAIN PIP!

You think? It’s not like she’s jumping up and down for joy, or egging on the killers, or anything like that. But she doesn’t do tears or solemnity or grieving, either. (Especially since she knows what comes next. She’s very matter-of-fact about it all.) She’s here to do a job, and she’ll do it, quite charmingly. Meanwhile, as she’s waiting in the wings (she’ll be coming onstage next week), War has popcorn and is willing to share, so why not?

There’s also the possibility she knows she’s in a comic and is choosing to “Sit back and relax.” I think she showed 4th wall breaking powers back in “Shine or Die.”

True, there is that. I agree that she treats it as a job, a duty towards those who will die. She should, since that’s what she decided after she lived as a human for a day and met herself. War’s treating it like a show. I guess his is just my further confusion for why she was with the Horsemen in the first place. The other three seem to imply they wish to spread their aspects. Death, as Gaimen wrote her, just is. No inclination to make more people die.

But then, now that I think about it a bit more, she hasn’t outright said that’s what she wants like the others have. So maybe I’m guilty of judgement by association. So I’ll just wait and see. I love your writing. I can appreciate it as a writer myself. So I’ll just trust in your impeccable ability to make beautiful plot and see where it leads.

you’d think Death would be a bit busy with everything happening? I’m shocked she doesn’t have her jogging stuff on. Then again this might me a five min brake between moving soles on and just wanted some popcorn. Or She want’s to hang out with a girl that isn’t insane, depressed or desire.

I’ve been thinking she’s not the only Death. But like, the Head Death In Charge, and there are other deaths who are her minions and underlings.

Yes, I realize Irregular Webcomic’s done that, and yes, I am suggesting this cause I kinda hope I see Grim in the near future.
