Gary Whitta and Ted Naifeh were onto something special last year with Death Jr.
While there’ve been plenty of cute/horror hybrids over the past few years, there was something utterly charming about the combination of Whitta’s characters and Naifeh’s drawings.
So DJ, as his friends (all fellow young monsters) call him, was certainly due a sequel and the creative team has made it happen.
Volume 2 finds DJ headed for a summer interning alongside dear ol’ dad, A.K.A. Death, at the company business, Terminal Industries. Meanwhile, all of DJ’s friends, including his would-be girlfriend Pandora, are all off to a very special summer camp with barbed-wire fences and guard towers called Happy Trails.
The charm, wit and humor of Death Jr. is back and we’re all the better for it.
