The 2000 AD ABC #106: The Dead

Delve into Peter Milligan and Massimo Belardinelli's psychedelic series set in the far future where death has been eliminated ... or has it?

1 year ago

Created by Peter Milligan and Massimo Belardinelli, The Dead was a philosophically psychedelic set in the far future where, thanks to a cure for sickness and ageing, a highly-evolved human race believes it has conquered death itself - only to be proved wrong when demons suddenly start erupting from their bodies and mortality again becomes a profound threat. After inadvertently defeating a demon, a nihilistic 'subversive' called Fludd is deliberately killed so he can be sent to the land of the dead to discover where these demons come from and whether ever-lasting life can be made possible again...
