It’s not easy being Death’s little boy.
This fact is hammered home even harder when Death Jr. decides to accept a summer internship with his father’s company, Terminal Industries.
Instead of swinging the old scythe around like his old man, DJ finds himself starting out at the bottom — way down in the accounting department as an assistant deputy clerk under the management of one of his dad’s old friends, Mr. Cracy.
As he’s beginning to lose hope of having any fun over the summer — and wishing he was with his friends at camp — DJ ambitions to be promoted out of the cellar see him tricked into getting his old man in hot water with the board of directors.
The result is Death: the homemaker, while DJ’s mom decides to become the breadwinner.
Can DJ help his dad get his job back before bureaucracy destroys the afterlife?
The creative team of Gary Whitta and Ted Naifeh never disappoint and Death Jr. 2 is another fine and funny adventure.
