Dearest Friends,
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Margaret Mars, philanthropist, globetrotter and onetime lover of Antonio Luna. Her noble pursuit of humanitarian causes dates back to the first word she ever spoke ("Peace"), which is juxtaposed with the seven words she uttered right before being assassinated ("Who let these ninjas into my house?!"). Indeed, these seven words paint an inexplicably bizarre, yet accurate, picture of her final moments on earth. Who let these ninjas into her house, and why were they there to begin with? What business did a pack of inhuman zombie-mummy-ninjas have with Ms. Mars, and more

    Deathbed #2 pushes the concept of this series up another notch. This time adding a more thoughtful component into the series, taking Luna down a peg from his high horse. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Mar 21, 2018

    The madness and chaos are thrown at the audience in a relentless storm that is almost overwhelming. This is a roller coaster of action and emotion where it is marvelously hard to tell the difference between truth and fiction, madness and reality. It is all so much fun, and should not be missed.

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Mar 21, 2018

    I feel like Antonio Luna is pretty out-of-touch with the real world because of his ridiculous adventures. The fact that he doesnt keep in touch with any friends is a bit jarring. Basically what I got from this issue is that he just kind of meets people on his adventures. Then they do whatever it is Luna needs help with. And, then he moves onto the next person. I hope Vals story doesnt end like the rest of Lunas friendsat a funeral. For Deathbeds dynamic character development, absurd action sequences, and pitch black dark humor Im giving this issue gets a high score. Read Full Review

    The issue continues the inappropriateness that is the exploration of Luna's life and when you think it can't get anymore cringeworthy funny, you're proven wrong. A fantastic series that delivers laughs with some heart underneath. Read Full Review

    After a first issue that seemed like it wasn't sure what it wanted to be, I enjoyed this issue a whole lot more. The tone of this book definitely isn't dark like I thought it was going to be coming in, and the goofy storytelling was a lot of fun in this one. The art continues to surprise me with how much I like it and the story has just enough intrigue to keep me reading. This was a big jump up from the last one, so I'm going to hope that it keeps with that upward trajectory moving forward. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason Dincauze Mar 26, 2018

    In all, Death Bed continues to be an intriguing entry in the medium of comics and has the potential to be a strong addition to Vertigos currently-lacking stable, though its unclear how much longer it can keep readers in the dark about the real plot of this story without feeling like it no longer has a pulse.
