YOU DIED: An Anthology of the Afterlife


Death is, truly, the one thing we all have in common. But that doesn't make it easy to talk about.

None of us can agree on what happens after the end comes, or how much we should think about it beforehand, or even what death should mean to the living. But who says there's anything wrong with that? Not us.

This Iron Circus Comics anthology features a line-up of cartoonists, both new and notable, relating their favorite stories, myths, hopes, and suspicions about death, dying, and even The Great Beyond.

Featuring a foreword from the New York Times bestselling author (Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory, From Here to Eternity: Traveling the World to Find the Good Death) and founder of death positivism herself, Caitlin Doughty, YouTube's very own Ask a Mortician, YOU DIED upholds the Iron Circus tradition of uniquely intriguing subject matter and artful execution in this frank and honest exploration of what it means to be "death-positive."

Additionally, YOU DIED won the 2022 Eisner Award for Best Anthology, and its story "Funeral in Foam"—by Raina Telgemeier and Casey Gilly—won the 2022 Eisner Award for Best Short Story!
