Death Talks About Life

 DTAL   (Vertigo, 1994)

Vertigo

This free comic was originally published as a special six-page insert in DC’s various Vertigo books. It stars Sandman’s Death—portrayed here as a young woman—with a very serious message for today’s youth.

Death, along with a cameo by John Constantine (Hellblazer), gives explicit instructions about avoiding AIDS. Included is a frank discussion of condoms, safe sex, and other topics that, as the cover warns, “some people might find offensive.” To these people, Death warns, “Just don’t read it. After all, the most it could do is save your life.”
