As per [personal profile] ravenous_raven 's request; "Death Talks About Life"

This was released as a giveaway for use in American high schools, so I don't see a problem with posting the whole thing. If Mods feel otherwise, let me know.

And I probably shouldn't sully this post with a cheap smutty gag, but c'mon, there are only so many opportunities for sex and banana jokes I get!

Thanks for posting. I wish Dave McKean would do more pen-and-ink work - it's just lovely.

I sometimes wonder if all those blurbs and messages written in this style are dictated to Gaimain directly by Death. It would make a lot of sense.

Thanks for posting this! Just as amusing and straight-forward as I thought it would be. Though fifth page, panel 2 definitely made me do a double-take...despite already knowing about the banana!

Banana in the Batman XD

No matter how many times I see the Death and Constantine AIDS talk, I nevvvvver get tired of it. I just wish there were more instances Constantine gets to interact with other Endless. ESPECIALLY Death, and moreso new!Dream.

Yeah, you'd think that considering just how many people John has, inadvertently or not, brought people to their deaths, he would probably be pretty familiar with her. :O

I noticed something:
Death states that anal sex is more risky than vaginal sex. I have never, ever heard that before. Is it even remotely true, or was Neil just misinformed?

A lady (who seemed at the time to be an old lady) showed my year (when I was seventeen, a bit late but there we go) how to put a condom on a banana.. but not in such a jaunty manner as Death does it unfortunately.

Think that's bad? My MOM did the banana thing during her version of the talk. I mean, looking back I can appreciate it, but at the time I was justifiably mortified.

I appreciate stuff like this because it's so INFORMAL. I think a lot of people tend to go 'yeah, yeah, whatever' about this sort of thing because they feel they're being PREACHED to. Something that lays out the basics in simple, conversational language that you can understand is for more effective than the other kind, because it doesn't sound like a lecture, it sounds like you've actually asked someone about the subject, and they've obliged you by telling you about it.
I read something Roald Dahl wrote for the London Underground that was something similar to this - not to do with condoms, of course; it involved train safety. He basically said, 'look, I understand all this stuff sounds boring when it comes from your parents or teachers, but seriously, nasty stuff could happen if you don't watch out, so here are a few pointers to help you do so.' (Of course, it helped that he was Roald Dahl - I mean, if Roald Dahl told you not to do a thing, would you really have the nerve to do it?)

Are there any other social messages by the Endless?

Like Dream and Delirium advising against the use of drugs?

Destruction explaining what to do in the event of a natural calamity?

Desire giving relationship advice?
