Review: The Many Deaths of Laila Starr #5

Writer: Ram V
Artist: Filipe Andrade
Color assists: Inês Amaro
Letterer: AndWorld Design

What will Laila Starr do when she’s finally given the chance to resume the mantle of Death? Finding herself back in the world, Laila searches out Darius and discovers that for the first time she will be witnessing the death of someone close to her. When they are both given a chance at immortality, their individual decisions lead to a surprising and touching series finale.

What an absolutely amazing series this was to experience. In five issues, a life story is told. In five issues, we explore the roles of Life and Death, what it means to be alive, and how we as humans need each other. This is honestly one of the most beautiful comics I’ve ever read.

The art really adds so much to what makes this series so special. There’s something so charming and beautiful about the art. The colors are absolutely perfect, and the lettering is fantastic.

Don’t miss issue #5!
