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?

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...
