Land of the Dead: Lessons from the Underworld on Storytelling and Living

by Brian McDonald Author and Toby Cypress Illustrator

Every culture has tales of death and the land of the dead. Throughout each unique tale, there is a similar theme - our need to survive, whether it be physically, emotionally, or spiritually. From Brian McDonald, an expert on the narrative arts, comes a remarkable non-fiction graphic novel about the art of storytelling and the lands of death in these stories. Land of the Dead shows how the arcs of character development are driven in ways to make them complex and compelling, how plot and circumstance create deathly nightmares. With electric illustrations throughout, this book will offer new ways for you to see character development, the crafting of plot, and issues of morality and mortality themselves.
