For those who aren’t familiar with the Lady Death story line, here’s some information taken directly from the Kickstarter page:
“Lady Death: Her Story”
“Lady Death is a supernatural sword-wielding anti-hero who battles evil in Hell (and wherever 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.”
“The New Story, Lady Death: Apocalyptic Abyss #1”
“This is the story we’ve been leading up to – Lady Death and The Hellriders are imprisoned in the Hellcity Dis while Hellwitch and her army descend to decimate Lady Death for once and for all. Their only chance of survival? Infiltrate the lair of the Hellbourne Edlers, guarded by ten thousand Hellbourne! Can Lady Death deliver her beloved mother’s soul to Heaven? Hell, can Lady Death even survive this epic onslaught, or is this her final stand? This is the BIG ONE, Fiends!”
“Lady Death: Apocalyptic Abyss #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, & Unholy Ruin #1.
