The modern master of comic satire, Moore delivers a hilarious and heartwarming story in which the ultimate Beta Male—the kind who is very, very careful and very prepared—takes a nosedive into the deep end of uncertainty when he's recruited to handle a new role: Death.
Charlie Asher is a pretty normal guy with a normal life, married to a bright and pretty woman who actually loves him for his normalcy. They're even about to have their first child. Yes, Charlie's doing okay—until people start dropping dead around him, and everywhere he goes a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Charlie Asher, it seems, has been recruited for a new position: as Death.
It's a dirty job. But, hey Somebody's gotta do it.
