Die, #7 picks up the other half of the story readers left behind after the dramatic conclusion of the first arc. Since that sequence of events all transpired way back in #6, some months ago, recall Chuck “the fool” and Isabelle, or Izzy, “the godbinder.” Both decide to stay in the land of DIE, though for different reasons. This #7 sheds light on these characters’ motives.
Izzy can barely hold it together. She journals about the debt she owes to the gods. Sure, she might be a godbinder, but that comes with a price, one that will someday need to be repaid. The problem is, she just keeps asking more of the beings above, and when Chuck acts like–well, like Chuck–a complete asshole, Izzy calls in another favor from the Mistress of Woe. The consequences are unintended and perhaps catastrophic.
