Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"While Gaiman brings a gritty urban contemporaneity to the fantasy genre, the story also suffers from a TV script-like sensibility — danger-defying quips, the good-hearted overweight black neighbor, melodramatic villain. Nevertheless the combination of wry mystic immortal and MTV slacker produces an engaging chemistry. Top-notch production, and although the illustration is a bit stiff, it's stylishly rendered and very nicely colored." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

One day in every century, Death walks the earth to better understand those to whom she will be the final visitor.

P.M. Bradshaw, February 26, 2015 (view all comments by P.M. Bradshaw)
One day every century, Death walks the earth like a normal person, to better know and understand those she takes away. On this day, she meets a confused teenager and a centuries-old homeless woman. Death is portrayed as an oddly sweet goth-girl rocker, somewhat troubled by her duties and her desire to help these sad, sad humans. A story of immortality and yet humanity at the same time. One of the best by author Neil Gaiman.
