A Date With Death

A Date With Death

by ZzizzR
( Mature Audiences Only )

What starts off as a typical day for Iku (death) turns into an unforgettable challenge to his power over everything within the universe. What force could be MORE powerful than death itself?

The Setting: Present day, just outside of a norther downtown metropolis near the coast.

Expect regular updates schedule permitting!

Comic Contains:
Some Mystery, Gore (very little in fact), Supernatural events, Suicide, Death & Dying, Suspense/ Thrills, Humor and some Romance thrown in the mix.

All disturbing scenes will be marked RDA (Reader Discretion Advised) so you're pre-warned of any violence or gore.

Note: Some of the characters are loosely based on the universal forces of nature known throughout the African Diaspora.

***ALSO NOTE Patrons get 1 week early access to pages as well as exclusive access to NSFW content***

Èṣù probably should have made his other wives queens too, he was a King, why the hell not? Then again, he already screwed up marrying someone with no royal bloodline. -_-'

Lastly, the word Akata is a Yoruba word meaning a feral/ non-domesticated cat (think the opposite of a house cat that has a home). Historically it's been used to describe "African Americans" (like myself) as well as Nigerians who "no longer live at home" [Nigeria] for example. Depending on the receiver, it can be taken as an insult or just a description. Today the word is VERY polarizing/ controversial and I wouldn't recommend anyone using it Yoruba or not.

Also, the next update of page(s) will be July 20th for folks not on my Patreon to get the perks.

The warning is for the graphic image of a mutilated ear.

Now we learn what happened when Èṣù (as Ṣàngó the then king of Oyo) brought Mami Wata (as Ọya) home to join his other wives Ọba and Ọṣun. He remembers how he lost his temper and all of his wives on the fateful day the assumed he was being poisoned.

This is from the myth where Ọba cuts off her ear to serve to her husband Ṣàngó with his favorite stew, because one of her co-wives ( Ọṣun ) has convinced her this will get Ṣàngó's attention. Once Ṣàngó sees the ear and realizes Ọba has mutilated herself, he chases her from his house and into permanent exile. In grief she transform into the river that's named for her that intersects with the River Ọṣun flowing in West Africa today.

Èṣù seems to know about Ọṣun's ability to disabuse others of their free will using just her eyes. ^_^'

Things must be getting serious when Ọṣun has to show up. Also, looks like Ògún in the background has ring side seats for this rumble, warriors are never too far from battle. ^_^

Uh, Jason isn't available to wash dishes w/o his flesh and bones right now and that check he ripped up just turned into cowrie shells. This guy clearly isn't too spooked about shells magically appearing on the table.

Iku may be powerful, but he's no match for The Sky Father, Danbala. I figured you'd like to know who Mami Wata's serpentine companions are. ^_^

Looks like Mami Wata has helped Iku remember their past, in another place and time.

Èṣù has a pretty elaborate way of getting over his ex and Iku doesn't seem too upset about dying over it.
Jason learns why you don't cross death, the results aren't pretty.

There goes Luís AGAIN... Mami Wata is right to not be at ease with Iku around.

I think Jason made his loathing of Luís perfectly clear. -_-'

Luís had enlisted Mami Wata's help with making past wrongs right for his cousin Jason Nommo who doesn't seem to happy too see him... Dead or alive.

Mami Wata can exist in many places simultaneously, so yes she's helping Luís out while she's getting ready for her date. ^_^

Mami Wata clearly knows about the King of Oyo's weakness for women curvy like his favorite [Batá] drum . That got her out of trouble for now... ^_^

This interestingly enough this is similar to a legend about of how Ṣàngó met Ọya .

Mami Wata Reveals her real identity to save herself, but Èṣù (in the incarnation of Ṣàngó, King of the Oyo Empire) is not letting her off so easily.

Can't blame the buffalo for wanting out of this predicament.

What does Mami Wata and a Water Buffalo have in common and why does it involve Èṣù in a previous incarnation?

Iku is not too pleased being ignorant of Èṣù's past connection with Mami Wata.

We finally get to meet Aline the waitress (one of the new characters on the list http://adatewithdeath.smackjeeves.com/a-date-with-death-characters/ ), Èṣù is showing great patience with her in spite of being hungry.

We get a cameo of Baron Samedi & Maman Brigitte, they obviously love the food at Sexi Mami.

Mami Wata's up to even more tricks, setting up a dinner date and all. By the way, Iku normally cannot be seen by us mere mortals, but Orisha's like Èṣù are a different story.
