Description

"Embraces death as a concept with due complexity." — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, Starred Review

"A very powerful collection that aims right for the heart, and is strongly recommended." — CEMETERY DANCE,

Death — the one aspect of life we all have in common — is waiting for everyone, yet our practices, beliefs, myths, and stories about it are as diverse as we are. YOU DIED celebrates these vibrant cultural expressions of the great equalizer in a thrilling, life-affirming whirlwind of a book, an inspirational volume to be treasured through times of both loss and abundance (and every day in between).

At turns both brazen and insightful, morose and optimistic, YOU DIED asks a wide array of cartoonist newbloods and all-stars to relate their most unforgettable tales of death and what comes next. Filled with beautifully illustrated accounts of grief and mourning, ancient myths, memorial rites around the globe, afterlife in the far reaches of space, and the simple and touching ways both the living and the dead carry on, this lively collection starts a comforting and much-needed dialogue about death as a natural part of life.

Featuring an introduction by death positivity movement pioneer and activist mortician CAITLIN DOUGHTY and a murderer’s row of comics talent including RAINA TELGEMEIER, SHAE BEAGLE, and LISA STERLE.
