From Aleister Gilgrim, the creator of The Cemeterians, this all new graphic novel tells the story of a recently deceased girl who is transported to the after-life. She quickly discovers that the after-life is nothing compared to what she expected and is briskly swept up in a twisted plot of intrigue, deception and danger between the Dead Realms. This graphic novel grew from a short story for Rising Stars of Manga from TokyoPop.

Ferrymen is a story of action, intrigue, and philosophical examinations. Follow Dorothy, a Newlydead soul, who being recently deceased, is transported to an after-life she never expected. Without any memory of her prior self or her mortal life, she wanders through the Dead Realm of Purgatory meeting rulers and monsters alike. Among those she meets are the Ferrymen of the Styx Tunnels., specifically assigned to the protection and trafficking of Newlydead souls to find their final home in Heaven or Hell.

Lurking in the tunnels are Lost Souls---terrible, hungry, relentless creatures who want nothing but to destroy everything they come in contact with . Soon, Dorothy discovers that it is not this danger alone that threatens her as she is quickly wrapped up in a twisted plot of intrigue, deception, and danger between the Dead Realms---one that will decide the fate of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory themselves.
