As Blackest Night starts week I thought I'd post these cameos of everyone's favourite Goth
Possibly NSFW due to Ken Dollish nudity.
Firstly, from Lucifer, where Death comes to observe after he is sent as close to dying he can by a magical tarot pack called Basanos,
He is then brought back to life by the timely intervention of his niece, Elaine, who is the daughter of his brother the archangel Michael.
Note the comparision here to how she was with Lucifer,
I have Death's appearence in Lobo around somewhere, but until I, or someone else, posts it, here's her cameo in Ambush Bug, which sadly seems to have even more resonance now then back in 1992 or when it was published,
And here is her most recent appearence (I think) in the current Madame Xanadu series.
Madame X is in prison, and her immortality running out, she is rapidly aging to death.
Out of desperation, she performs what seems to be the same ritual they tried at the beginning of the Sandman series,
Xanadu askes that she be allowed to perform Death's card reading in exchange for not dying, and out of amusement Death agrees,
And here's the artwork from the above Lucifer issue, 'cause it's pretty,
Will possibly post her appearence in Books of Magic at some point in the future, depending on whether my photobucket bandwidth doesn't decide to go tits up.
Anyway, here's the thing.
Although I know that the current (kind of stupid) mandate between Vertigo and DC is that characters can't cross over anymore, I'd... Like it so that when characters like the Dibnys die, they have this particular anthropomorphic personification there waiting for them.
Not the Black Racer. Not Black Flash. Not Nekron. Just... Death.
Personally, I think that life in the DCU must be scary enough with the possiblity of that lot coming after you.
Anyway, here's to Death of the Endless, the joint first nicest personification of death after this guy,
