Purgatori is first mentioned in Lady Death #2 (1994) when the Cremator hands Lady Death her trademark outfit, claiming that Lucifer had made it for his lover Purgatori eons ago.
Unfortunately there has been some miscommunication among internet sites and articles that claim Purgatori’s first appearance is in Lady Death #3 (1994) – but she neither appears nor is mentioned in this issue.
I get some satisfaction thinking about how Lady Death actually has to wear Purgatori’s wedding dress. I thank the Lady for supporting #TeamPurgatori!. Here is where I will start a tally exclusively for Purgatori when it comes to Lady Death.
