Description The paper deals with the motif of death shown in the comic book Ljubazni leševi by Ivica Stevanović and Zoran Penevski. The author focuses on death “stolen” by the government of the fictional country, which is then used as a commodity in the process of controlling citizens. Death is not feared any more by anyone, which may have catastrophic consequences. Enslaving death may lead to the furious destruction of ethics in society, which is one of the main messages of this comic book allegory.
