The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service: Book One Gets Omnibus Edition


Death and taxes are really the only two things guaranteed in life. The IRS handles the taxes, but the dead get different attention. They may have unfinished business that needs attending and Dark Horse has just the thing to help them finish things up. The last wishes of the dead are about to be realized in a big way this August when acclaimed manga series The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service gets the omnibus treatment from Dark Horse Comics.

The quintet uses their special skills of channeling, dowsing, ESP and more to help the dead move on to their next reincarnations.
