Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Death)


Death of the Endless is an important character in the series, though the extent of her appearance is not confirmed.

"Dead Boy Detectives" it's about two dead guys who solve mysteries as ghosts. The show has funny parts and it's a bit weird. The story is connected to the Sandman Universe.

The main characters, Charles and Edwin, choose not to go to the afterlife.They don't leave Earth. They solve spooky crimes.The show is mainly for young adults.It has lots of small mysteries, but they're not too complicated.

I liked a few characters a lot, especially Niko and Jenny. They are very fun in the series. The special effects are okay but not perfect. Sometimes they look fake. The show is long, with eight episodes that are each about an hour. But it moves along quickly.

Some parts try to be funny but didn't work for me. There are some gory scenes too. I already mentioned it, this show is for teens and young adults, but even olders can enjoy it. One thing I didn't like was a side story about a government group chasing the detectives. It felt unnecessary.
