Feb. 17, 2018: Kim Reaper: Grim Beginnings Signing

Sarah Graley signs KIM REAPER: GRIM BEGINNINGS at Forbidden Planet Birmingham on Saturday 17th February from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.

In KIM REAPER, Kim works at a part-time job to make ends meet. Unlike most university students, Kim’s job is pretty dang cool: she’s a grim reaper, tasked with guiding souls into the afterlife.

Like most university students, Becka has a super intense unrequited crush. Unlike most university students, Becka’s crush is on a beautiful gothic angel that frequents the underworld. Of course, she doesn’t know that. Unaware of the ghoulish drama she’s about to step into, Becka finally gathers up the courage to ask Kim on a date!

But when she falls into a ghostly portal and interrupts Kim at her job, she sets off a chain of events that will pit the two of them against angry cat-dads, vengeful zombies, and perhaps even the underworld itself. But if they work together, they just might make it… and maybe even get a kiss in the bargain.

Sarah Graley is a UK based comic artist and writer, who wrote and drew the Rick and Morty comic mini series Lil’ Poopy Superstar, and creates the comic series Kim Reaper for Oni Press.

She is also known for her popular diary comic series Our Super Adventure, and is currently working on her graphic novel Glitch for Graphix/Scholastic, pencilled for release late 2018.
