Death is like space—a seemingly unknowable, terrifying blackness, that yields incredible discoveries and truths—if only you’ve got the right kind of rocket ship.

What if suicide isn’t a desire to die, but a desire to be somewhere else?

What if there is a place we can go after death, but we have no way to phone home about it?

What if the Freudian death instinct is not destructive…but discovery?

After a near-death experience, lonely funeral home receptionist Thalia Rosewood is recruited into the Euthanauts, a select group of psychonauts, sick folk, and other intrepid explorers who pass over willingly to determine What Lies Beyond.

Tini Howard (Assassinistas, Rick and Morty) combines her trademark black humor and grounded, realistic storytelling with an otherworldly and mind-expanding exploration of the one thing we all have in common.

Publication History: TR original

Collects the five-issue series.

Not since The Sandman’s sister took the comics world by storm in the early ’90s has a comic taken a hard look at the death industry.

Explores the growing Death Positive movement: the right to die as we choose, for reasons that aren’t suicidal, but intrepid. Life-after-death. Answering the big questions without tidy answers.

Tini Howard is a writer and swamp witch from the Carolina Wilds. Currently, she writes Assassinistas (with Gilbert Hernandez) and Hack/Slash: Resurrection, with occasional stories for two of her favorite things: Rick and Morty and WWE. Her previous work includes Power Rangers: Pink, The Skeptics (Black Mask Studios), and a contribution to the hit Secret Loves of Geek Girls.
