  • SYNOPSIS

I WELCOME DEATH IS STORY OF MARCO. HE COMMITTED SUICIDE AFTER LOSING HIS SON TO CANCER. HE AWAKES TO FIND HIMSELF IN SOME SORT OF PURGATORY. HE IS VISITED BY AN ENTITY THAT CALLS HIMSELF THE BOOK. A HELLISH LAWYER WHO IS INSTRUCTED TO TAKE HIM THROUGH 4 TESTS. TESTS THAT IF COMPLETED WILL GRANT HIM A SECOND LIFE.

BUT DOES HE WANT IT?

  • STORY SO FAR

As Marco wakes up from what became a sudden nightmare, screams from a child. He opens his eyes to the piercing scream of a lone child wrapped  in cellophane screaming in agony. He falls off of what seems like a gurney and he also notices that his right arm is tied to the rails of it. The child, it seems to be tortured, is screaming non stop. The door opens in a big SLAM! Abraxas the child silencer walks in an completely ignores Marco, who is now cowering under the gurney. Abraxas turns to the child and lifts up his gigantic sledgehammer he was dragging behind him, he raises in the air and he comes down on the child screaming....

He gets visited by a suicide who is condemned to wander with a second head behind his own that talks to him and torments him.

THE 2 HEADED HAG

Just when Marco thought that it couldn't get any more creepy or weird, a demon calling himself THE BOOK shows up and lays out the rules for the ressurection that he has been chosen for.

THE BOOK

Here the judgement begins. Marco  has been given the opportunity to get a second life after his suicide. He only needs to pass 4 judgments. The Feeder, the Goat, The Pig and the Landlord. He has to test himself to obtain the sigils lost to time. Uriel, Redemption, Resurrection and Forgiveness...BUT, does he want them?

 .GIF of the process it takes to do the prints 

This is my first kickstarter and I'm pretty nervous about doing it. The funds would go to production of the comic and the compensations in it. I just want the world to know about my stories and what goes in the universe i created. 

Depends the pledge you back, you get more stuff. And stretch goals are even better.
