Series editor Jonathan Stevenson:
Alisik is a beautifully illustrated comic by German creators Hubertus Rufledt and Helge Vogt. It tells the story of a young woman, cut down in her youth, and her struggle to cope in the afterlife. Not so much a coming of age story, as a coming of death one.
When Alisik wakes up alone in a cemetery, she thinks she’s in the middle of a nightmare. Terrified, she flees into the night, but realizes she is invisible to everyone she meets. She really is dead, with no memory of how it happened…and only the ghostly residents of the graveyard can help her unravel the mystery of her afterlife.
