Mercy (1993) is a graphic novel, written by J. M. DeMatteis, and illustrated by Paul Johnson, published by DC Comics' Vertigo imprint. It tells the tale of a bitter cynical Joshua Rose, who while in a coma after a stroke, finds himself drifting through states of Limbo. There he witnesses the personification of Mercy battling many of the personal demons and anguishes that afflict humankind, and in the end, those which afflict him, as long reluctant and even hostile to recognizing the worth of her activities and presence, he enters into a state of acceptance and appreciation of the qualities of Mercy.
