He comes when he is least expected. You hear a knock at the door. You fear the worst: it’s Little Death. But is he here for you? Or your cat?
Little Death, the pint-size death merchant in the black suit, is the creation of Thomas Kriebaum. Created initially as a response to his previous, critically-acclaimed book Life, and riffing on the premise of Death in Venice, it wasn’t until Kriebaum saw Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman that he thought of Little Death as a world-weary, door-to-door salesman, plying his trade to the unwelcoming public.
The result is Little Death, a smart and witty interpretation of the time-old question of what to do if death came knocking at your door. Told in 14 stories, Kriebaum’s Little Death may be child-like in size, but sports a smart black suit, a dashing cap and tinted glasses over his ‘deathly’ pale face. Along his journey to collect his due souls, we are transported from a Nighthawks-styled diner to various apartment complexes – meeting dramatic starlets, the familiar little old ladies, and the unsuspecting public just going about their errands.

“Perfect ... for, well, anyone. Big or small, young or old, male or female, whether of not they like comics. And if you get the gag that the French for “Little Death” is a euphemism for an orgasm, then even better ... I think this has the potential to be a massive cult hit.”
