I was recently contacted by Jon Lock, with a look at the very impressive world of Afterlife, Inc. This is one of those rare independently created online comics that has so much going for it, all across the creative board, that I get a little wrapped up in it. I didn’t want to wait to read it and review it before putting something out there (I’ve got five collected volumes to get through!), so here’s a preview… Please, follow the links to the website and take a look at what this team has put together.

Afterlife, Inc.

The afterlife is under new management…

When corporate con-artist Jack Fortune’s life comes to an abrupt and brutal end, he discovers a business opportunity on a previously unimaginable scale. A mysterious Calamity has struck the afterlife, wiping the ruling body from existence and plunging the Empyrean – the great golden city of the dead – into chaos. The time is ripe for modernisation.

With the vision, the business-smarts and a ragtag collection of allies behind him, Jack strives to reinvent the afterlife as a modern-day corporate entity. Establishing a new business is always challenging, but now Jack must balance the demands of a free market with rampaging archangels, a misplaced God and the dark secrets at the heart of their world.

This may be the job he was born to die for, but has Jack’s reach finally exceeded his grasp?

Jack Fortune

The star of the show: self-made man and con-artist extraordinaire. Jack’s got it all. The look, the attitude, the smile of an angel… Whether or not his conscience is as pure remains to be seen. Jack’s spent a lifetime (two, arguably) deceiving people, and there’s no reason to assume he’s changed his stripes now. But Jack’s on a mission, and under his leadership the afterlife is changing for the better. Death is no longer a disadvantage.

Jack’s dangerous thinking has challenged an eternity of tradition. But with the entire afterlife dancing to his tune, can he be trusted with the power?
