Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens
“Current theories on the creation of the Universe state that, if it was created at all and didn’t just start as it were, unofficially, it came into being between ten and twenty thousand million years ago.”
When the Antichrist goes missing, all Hell breaks loose when the world is supposedly ending soon. Although, it may be good news for an angel and a demon who weren’t too keen on the end of the world.
