Lady Death: Her Story

Lady Death is a supernatural, sword-wielding anti-hero who battles evil in Hell (and where ever she pleases). Once she was Hope, a teenaged girl who is deceived by demons in an effort to save her mother’s soul in Hell. She renounces her mortality for eternal life in Hell. To ensure her survival, she turns to the darkness within herself and begins a transformation into Lady Death.

What is the new story, Lady Death: Unholy Ruin #1?

By choice, Lady Death rides alone. Having saved Jake – and Hell itself – from the insane treachery of Herr Reich, the rogue Nazi scientist, she has separated herself from her allies Haxan and Hellrider, convinced that anyone close to her will die.

Unknown to Lady Death, insurmountable forces – and former enemies – rally against her. On earth, a group of supernatural saviors plan to invade Hell and bring Lady Death back to earth to save it from the extinction level villainy of The Trinity.

Things are about to get messy…

The Details

Lady Death: Unholy Ruin #1′ is a 48-page, square-bound all new graphic novel that builds on the mythology we created in Chaos Rules #1, Damnation Game #1, Extinction Express #1, Oblivion Kiss #1, Merciless Onslaught #1. It is the 6th chapter in Lady Death’s NEW story. And…as we launch this Kickstarter campaign, the creative work is 100% done. All we gotta do is print and ship — and that is where YOU come in! Printing and shipping ain’t cheap! Heck, no! We need your support to get this done!
