2 The Hereafter as Sitcom By Damien Glez Distributed by WittyWorld International Features and Bulls Press GmbH

3 Divine Comedy …is created in Africa by a French-Burkinabe cartoonist …translated in Egypt into British English by a noted international journalist …forwarded to Japan where a resident American prepares the text for the American market …edited by a Hungarian-born American editor in the United States …then sent to agencies, such as the German bureau of a Swedish syndicate, where it is colorized and translated into more languages and marketed internationally A TRULY UNIVERSAL COMIC STRIP

4 Excerpts from the musings of a New York City Radio Personality, John Weber

5 “Do you believe in an afterlife? Do you buy into the concept of heaven and hell? What’s your vision of life behind the pearly gates? “ Divine Comedy tweaks the traditional vision of fluffy clouds and harp-playing angels and takes it down the road of television situation comedies.”

6 “Based on Michelangelo’s painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, in Divine Comedy, God (Lord) is more than a presence. He’s a full-fledged character with perhaps more human qualities than we are used to in depictions of the Supreme Being.”

7 “The other main character (Pete) is based on St. Peter and is in charge of the keys to heaven. Think of this traditional, easily flustered gatekeeper more as a frustrated hotel manager trying to accommodate his strange and unusual permanent guests.”

8 Supporting cast? Oh, just about anyone you can imagine from the annals of recorded history, from show business, to politics, sports, and science, to whoever else might elicit a chuckle or two. Let’s take a peek…

25 Beyond frequently reuniting us with noteworthy personalities from history, Divine Comedy is funny, entertainingly cerebral, worldly, educational, and is refreshingly contemporary.

26 Although the stories take place in heaven, Divine Comedy is not about religion. Yet, time to time, with delightful delicacy, it manages to bring us a smile of awe.
