Rime of the Ancient Mariner (Part 07)

Chapter: English Literature During The Romantic Period
Your Gal Death hops over to the Mariner's boat and his entire crew (some two-hundred men) instantly drops dead. So now the Mariner is lonely, on top of starving and being dehydrated. On the upside, at least Death was pretty hot.
Note that this strip was drawn before I realized I'd misread the poem slightly. Technically, the lady version of Death is supposed to be "Life-in-Death" and tortures the Mariner while regular ol' Death kills all the sailors. I decided the strips weren't worth redrawing and rewriting based on this technicality, but I thought I should mention it here, before anyone started correcting me in the comments. We'll just say that my retelling of the story in the comic is slightly different than the poem and leave it at that.
