This volume was exquisite, but could have done without the last 6-page arc. It wasn't the material that troubled me, but rather the artwork. Ah, well. It wasn't a pretty subject, so I guess it didn't have to look pretty, either. ( )

I bumbled upon this volume in our local library and just loved it. Death appears in the form of a girl once per year and we watch as she assists her assignments during this fleeting period. Several stories are linked through plot line and the artwork is to die for. Comic book, graphic novel, whichever, just pure heaven. ( )

She is arguably the best character from the Sandman comics and would definitely rank highly on my personal "top 10 favourite fictional characters of all time." When I think of "death" as a personification of a concept, she is who I picture. This is a great tribute, containing both mini-series, The High Cost of Living and The Time of Your Life as well as a couple of the short stories from the Sandman comics, like The Sound of Her Wings (beautiful) and Façade. Even though I had read all of these before, I didn't own them - I borrowed them from friends or my local library, so I had no qualms about purchasing this collection. It's great to be able to read these stories again, and bound in a beautiful hardcover. It also includes a gallery of bonus art by some famous comic book artists. Reading this made me nostalgic. I miss Sandman. ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The first story introduces 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. In the second story, a rising star of the music world wrestles with revealing her true sexual orientation just as her lover is lured into the realm of Death that Death herself should make an appearance. A practical, honest, and intelligent story that illuminates "the miracle of death."… (more)
