This is the story of a girl named Emily who befriends Death.
Together, they grow and learn and are forced to challenge
everything they think they know.

Generally updates on Saturdays.

This comic is almost entirely created and set on the stolen lands of the Boon Wurrung
and Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin nations. I would like to pay my respects to their elders
past, present, and emerging, and to their rich tradition of art and of storytelling.
Sovereignty was never ceded.

Written and drawn by me, Ira A Francis. I am a nonbinary arborist
with one degree in philosophy and literature and another in geoscience and physics.
I do not believe in substance dualism even though that’s how this story works.

Just a headsup: some kinda heavy themes sometimes.
May contain traces of death (including suicide and genocide), mental illness, abuse, and trauma. Also occasional swear words.
