What if you arrived at the conclusion of your voyage only to find yourself in hell? While most of us are confident that we will exit this world, it is difficult to envision what lies beyond. When it comes to the afterlife, hell and paradise are two of the most well-known options, and the artist Burly, who is behind the comics “The Immortal Grind,” writes comics based on those two topics as well. And, despite the fact that his comics are usually about hell and its inhabitants, such as the Grim Reaper, the Devil, and his miniature helpers, they never fail to make one grin.
In a previous interview Burly told us a little bit about himself that, “My background is in graphic design, but with more of a focus on vector-based designs (like logos and icons). I decided to start a webcomic as a way to get more experience with digital drawing and the associated tools.”
Here’s what the artist had to say to us when it came to discussing the afterlife subject in his comics.
“In my comic, I believe it to be less glamorous and more akin to the daily drudgery that people face on Earth. Is it really that bad? Hopefully not!” Perhaps this is why, according to his bio, the author employs only a few lines to communicate the concept of his work to the audience: “Chronicling the daily life of the afterlife.”
As we have seen so far, the world appears to be becoming progressively frightening. What used to be the Roaring Twenties became a global pandemic two years ago, and if we’ve learned anything from it, it’s that we must be prepared for anything at this time, including the world’s impending destruction if it comes to that. That is why we might perhaps take a page from Burly’s book (comics) and consider what awaits us in the afterlife.
