The Many Violent Deaths of David Maybury…

My dear housemate, David Maybury, is kind of a big deal in Kids literature. Recently he was written into and killed off by fellow Children’s author Derek Landy in his book ‘Skulduggery Pleasant: Mortal Coil’. Seeing David killed off in print has delighted friends, family and fans so much so that Mr Colm O’Brien decided to create ‘The Many Violent Deaths of David Maybury’…

For those of you who cannot read the small print, it basically details that David works about seventeen jobs concurrently. This is the gospel truth, although it’s more like 4 jobs, which require David to leave the house at 5am and get home after 8. Insanity, the likes of which a normal person could only handle if they had infinite clones of themselves… Hence the blog!

The blog asks you to devise and storyboard the many grisly ends that David’s clones meet. There’s only been one so far. But, I am submitting mine tonight and encourage you to do the same! If you know David or if you don’t it makes no difference, we can all enjoy killing him off!

Go! Do it!
