Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Get ready for an authentic Manga makeover of the Sandman mythos — in a unique digest format — based on Neil Gaiman's Season of Mists storyline and featuring appearances by members of the Endless, the Sandman's uniquely dysfunctional family.

Written & illustrated by Eisner Award-winning artist Jill Thompson (The Sandman: Brief Lives, Scary Godmother) and printed in black-and-white with gray tones. The story is told as a traditional girls' manga tale — or shojou — replete with family drama, strong interpersonal relationships, dramatic pacing, symbolism, and a cast of alluring, androgynous characters with a flair for fashion.

Also incuded: a special sketchbook section, an introduction to the character Death, and summaries of the 10-volume Sandman library.

Death: At Death's Door reveals what Death and her sisters were up to as Morpheus contemplated what to do with the key to Hell in the Season of Mists storyline. After the Sandman cut off Lucifer's wings, the Morningstar abdicated his kingdom and left the Key to Hell in Morpheus's hands...which meant that Hell's nastiest denizens were free to vacate the premises. Unfortunately for Death, they ended up in her apartment. Little sisters Delirium and Despair decide to throw a party for the dead — which quickly gets out of control. It's up to Dream's older sister Death to figure out how to save the day and the afterlife — not to mention the carpet. Will the power of the ankh prevail?

Review:

"[A]n entertaining story...and a pleasant reminder of Season of Mists from a different stylistic perspective, but it does work more as an enjoyable series of skits rather than an overall story. (Grade: A-)" Paul O'Brien, The X-Axis

Synopsis:

Written and illustrated by Eisner Award winner and Sandman fan-favorite artist Jill Thompson, this digest also features a special sketchbook section and an introduction to the character and twelve-volume Sandman library.

Synopsis:

A member of the Endless, a family of beings who have existed longer than the gods, Death enjoys manifesting herself in the persona of a young Goth girl. Along with her siblings, she interacts and influences the lives of humans on a daily basis. In this managastyle adventure, Death's little sisters, Delirium and Despair, have thrown a party at her apartment for hell's escapees. But as the festivities get out of control, it falls on Death's black-clad shoulders to regain order and save the afterlife. Printed in black, white, and gray tones, this trade paperback weaves an eccentric tale of danger, romance, humor, and fun. SUGGESTED FOR MATURE READERS.
