Sideshow Collectibles is probably best known as a fine purveyor of incredibly fancy (and expensive) premium figures and statues. But it has also branched out into making its very own fantasy world—and to celebrate a new book based on it, we’ve got a new comic miniseries to set it all up.

Court of the Dead, which Sideshow has so far used as a setting to create its own line of collectibles, is set in a world where only Death himself can stop a battle between Heaven and Hell that is tearing the planes of existence apart. Now, it’s expanding even further, with a new book filled with art and lore snippets to flesh out the series into its own universe.

To celebrate, we’ve got an exclusive look at the first part in a series of three weekly comics that tells the story of Death and his Court, as well as a few pages from Court of the Dead: Chronicle of the Underworld to fill you in on the back story.

Tune in next week for the second part of the comic, and to learn more about Court of the Dead, you can head on over to Sideshow’s website here. Chronicles of the Underworld is available now.
