What if we found a cure for death?
  
Two of comics' most acclaimed creators, SCOTT SNYDER (WYTCHES, Batman, American Vampire) and JEFF LEMIRE (DESCENDER, PLUTONA, Moon Knight, Sweet Tooth) unite to create an epic like no other, set in a future where a genetic cure for death has been found. Years after the discovery, one man starts to question everything, leading him on a mind-bending journey that will bring him face-to-face with his past and his own mortality.
  
A unique combination of comics, prose, and illustration, A.D.: AFTER DEATH is an oversized hardcover graphic novel written by SNYDER and fully painted by LEMIRE.

    Wow what an unbelievably beautiful and moving piece of art. First off it must be said there is ALOT to read in this "comic", but if you're willing to invest the time it takes to read it its an amazing journey. The writing in both the prose and comic sections are fantastic. Really giving you a very strong connection with Jonah and his battle to overcome his anxieties and fears. The art from Lemire give this book a very dream like almost children's picture book type feel to it with very simple drawling and a phenomenal watercolor palette. Overall this is simply a stunning work from two of the best creators in comics.

    Utterly stunning minus a somewhat muddled ending. But a tour de force by the team that brought you Rotworld.
