The deadly God of Death

God of Death? It's all so morbid. Why can't we have a God of Death by Chocolate?

But we can soften the blow and call him the God of Everlasting Sleep. That's much more pleasant, isn't it? And don't forget, he may be a God of Death but his mommy NYX loves him just the same.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Thanatos graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Thanatos movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Thanatos statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Thanatos. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
