Λιγότερο φλύαρο από το Gurds!Guerds! και με λίγο πιο "ανοιχτό", ευανάγνωστο σκίτσο.

I have read this book some time ago, so I will keep this brief.

Terry Pratchett is, for me, the best fantasy-comedy writer. As such, almost all of his books are must reads, for me.

Mort tells the tale of a boy who "apparently" was good for nothing, but Death offers him a job...

This book was great, because it revealed a lot of what Death is about in Discworld.

His writing is, as always superb. The story is interesting and all the characters as well.

No much more to say without spoiling anything, exce

If you are a fan of Terry Pratchett, you'll like this adaptation of 'Mort'. If you haven't heard of him & want to get into the Discworld series, this is a good place to start for the most part.

Not sure why, but I didn't like this anywhere near as much as the actual book. Still a good story, just not my favourite version of it.

I'm not sure the things I love about Pratchett really translated into the comic form? Faintly disappointing.

I had a copy of this for my birthday 20 years ago and loved it then as much as I do now.

One of the best novels of all time - not sure if it entirely works as a comic, it's confusing in parts and lacks a lot of the charms of Sir Terry's writing*. Nice art though and it's fun to take a look at if you've already read the book.

*like his famous footnotes...

Terry worked for many years as a journalist and press officer, writing in his spare time and publishing a number of novels, including his first Discworld novel,
