But still, grim-reaping is a chore for Sod. Every day after school he's expected to guide souls into the afterlife. And it's really going to get in the way of playing guitar with his band. But when he starts neglecting his grim-reaping duties things go awry in the universe. It's up to Sod, and his new goth friend, Graveyard Girl, to work out how to put things right again.
