World’s Finest: An Exclusive Interview With Death

dd2 (1) (1)

Welcome fellow Agents of Precinct1313 to another exhilarating episode of  “World’s Finest”  a series of exclusive interviews that aim to introduce you to some of our very favourite convocation of comic-book characters of… all… time!

Each episode we cordially invite one of our most treasured – Superheroes, SuperVillains, Costumed Crimefighters, Dimension Dwelling Demons, and, of course, Super-Pets to answer a quotient of quintessentially quirky questions about life, the Universe, and cake (’cause everyone loves cake)

And so, let us welcome to Precinct1313’s sacred sanguine sofa of significantly satirical secrets: the Dame of Demise and Duchess of the Deceased – Death, of the Endless…

Precinct1313: Hi there Death, and thanks so much for joining us on this week’s Worlds Finest.

Death: Hi, thanks so much for having me, you can call me Didi, if you prefer.

Precinct1313: Didi? as in die die?

Death: Uh, that’s a little morbid don’t you think? no, as in Deedee.

Precinct1313: Got it, though I do find your morbidity comment rather amusing, I mean, you are the Grim Reaper after all…

Death: Ha ha, nope, that’s my predecessor, although we had to let him go… he was literally scaring people to death!

Precinct1313: Isn’t that kind of the point though, y’know, harvester of souls and all…

Death: Mmmmm, I tend to keep things a little lighter, I mean that whole skull and scythe thing is a little too on the nose, don’t you think?

Precinct1313: Umm, I guess… though technically you perform the same service, right?

Death: In a way, but I tend to gently lead people into the afterlife as opposed to, how did you put it… harvest their souls?

Precinct1313: So, I’m intrigued, how does this whole cycle of life thing work, I mean, how do you specifically know when someone’s about die?

Death: Mmmmm, it’s a little complicated, but I guess the best way to describe it is that I can see the tapestry of their lives unfolding before me as a cartographical certainty. Would you like me to reveal your fate? your ultimate denouement as an example of this?

Precinct1313: I’d really rather you didn’t, thanks…

Death: Ah okay, I understand, you’ll know soon enough anyway…

Precinct1313: Uhhh, what does that mean?

Death: Oh nothing, shall we move on, I do tend to lead a rather busy life y’know…

Precinct1313: Erm, okay… So, my first ever encounter with your character was through the Neil Gaiman masterpiece – Death: The High Cost Of Living, any thoughts on Mr Gaiman and his prodigious writing talent?

Death: Neil is fantastic, a true gent and an outstanding talent, it’s through him that I’ve been able to share my many wonderful adventures and memories.

Precinct1313: I see, and he has been relaying said adventures about yourself and extended family, The Endless, since 1989 I believe.

Death: That he has.

Precinct1313: Well Death, uh Didi, may I just say, once again, thanks so much for joining us on this weeks World’s Finest.

Death: It’s been a pleasure, it’s time for us to go anyway…

Precinct1313: Us?

Death: Why yes, why else do you think I’m here?

Precinct1313: For the interview, of course…

Death: I’m afraid not… it’s time, just take my hand…

Precinct1313: But, but, I have an appointment at 3pm.

Death: Unfortunately, you’re not going to make it…

  3. Good work Death and 1313 – hope they give you some time off in the afterlife to come back and write. Ironic that the 3 pm appointment you missed was to update your life insurance plan, oh well 🙂

  5. Haha! Hooking up with Death for an interview wasn’t such a good idea… 😀 Speaking of Gaiman’s creations, I’m reading Norse Mythology right now. Highly recommendable (and I’m of Viking blood ;))

    • Yes indeed, she had an alternative reason for stopping by, much to my chagrin! 😉 I love anything Gaiman and though I’m personally more partial to Greek mythology, I am most definitely intrigued to find out more about his take on Norse mythology!! 🙂
