Forget everything you know about dark, hooded figures with scythes: these days grim reapers dress like everyone else, have families of their own and scythes that look a lot like mobile phones.

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.
