"Only Death Can Save Us" is a bronzeage inspired, cosmic, fantasy romp, bringing together action and pathos as the ancient elemental known as 'Death' leaps from his ethereal retirement to help a young soul protect her loved ones, her world... and even existence itself!

Metaphysical and inter relational themes are touched upon whilst an energetic chase and confrontation takes center stage. This world runs deep with cosmic and ancient human mythologies constantly crossing streams!

The story firmly plants itself in the all ages readership audience with Ex-Marvel Editor Tim Quinn guiding the art and story duties of 'Dr Who' and 'Marvel artist' Russ Leach and award winning writer Rik Hoskin, in a tale that is in many ways a love letter to the way comics used to be!
