Directionless after high school. Confused by strange dreams she can’t quite remember. No idea what to wear when she’s asked to a date at a bonfire. Then the guy who asked her isn’t even there, and things start to get really weird.
Anne’s Story begins the day she dies. We discover the world of The Deathlings along with her, as she hunts for her own killer, discovers that powers over life and death won’t solve her real-life problems, and eventually has to choose between joining an ancient war with the undead or trying for a slim chance at keeping her friends and family.

Tony says, “The Deathlings: Anne’s Story contains a lot of elements I love in comics and stories in general. I love the dark, gothic feeling from this book of hidden races, secret wars and a main character who is attempting to understand her place in it all. The art is nicely rendered and only enhances the mood. Great stuff!”
