'TODAY, TOMORROW, THE GRAVE' A murder at a wedding reveals a fifty year-old secret. At great cost, a man with a dying wife is given the opportunity to save her. A lost tribe is reborn in another time. Seemingly disparate events that force relics from the Greatest Generation to come together for one last hurrah. Brought to you by award-winning writer JONATHAN HICKMAN and fan-favorite artist RYAN BODENHEIM, THE DYING AND THE DEAD is high adventure meets end-of-life care. It's Indiana Jones for Old People. There are no fedoras, only bedpans.

BONUS REVIEW by Gavin Rehfeldt


What did I just read? Jonathan Hickman weaves another far out tale with multiple layers of tone, conflict, and purpose. This is his biggest endeavor yet, with a scope that keeps expanding, evolving, and mutating. The intimate balloons into the epic with perfectly suited art by Bodenheim. If you like a meaty, multifaceted, and cinematic read, this book is for you. If you like your reading a bit more focused, you may find this a bit bewildering by the end. Still, this is an interesting read that calls to mind Hickman's East of West by way of Paul Thomas Anderson's film Magnolia.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
