Laila is the goddess of death. Or she was, until she got fired once the afterlife was discontinued. So she’s left to her own devices as a mere mortal. Not exactly a core competence of Laila’s. Fortunately for her, with a little help from her friends, she can twist the mortal coil to come back to life again, as many times as is needed to complete her vendetta versus the prophet who foretold the end of death forever. That’s after all where the trouble begins in this tale of magical (sur)realism. Trippy story by writer Ram V and ravishing visuals by illustrator Filipe Andrade, a dynamic duo in graphic novels.
