Publisher Comments:

From the pages of Newbery Medal winner Neil Gaiman's The Sandman comes the young, pale, perky, fan-favorite character Death in a new Absolute Edition collecting her solo adventures

Featuring the miniseries Death: The High Cost of Living #1-3 in which Death befriends a teenager and helps a 250-year old homeless woman find her missing heart.

The Absolute Death collects the miniseries Death: The High Cost of Living and Death: The Time of Your Life together with "The Sound of Her Wings" and "Facade" from The Sandman #8 and #20, the P. Craig Russell-illustrated "Death and Venice" from The Sandman: Endless Nights, and the never-before reprinted stories "A Winter's Tale" and "The Wheel." This deluxe volume also features an introduction by The Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer as well as extensive galleries of Death portraits and retail products, sketches by artist Chris Bachalo, and the complete original script by Gaiman for The Sandman #8.

Synopsis:

From the pages of Neil Gaiman's Sandman comes the young, pale, perky, and genuinely likable Death. One day in every century, Death walks the Earth to better understand those to whom she will be the final visitor. Today is that day. As a young mortal girl named Didi, Death befriends a teenager and helps a 250-year old homeless woman find her missing heart. What follows is a sincere musing on love, life and (of course) death. A practical, honest, and intelligent story that illuminates "the miracle of death."

Death, Dream's charming and often misunderstood sister, is a delightful character from the Sandman series and her stories are included in this very collectible Absolute edition. This book would be a treat to own for any Sandman lover or for anyone who Death made an impression on over the course of the series.
