Death: The Time of Your Life picks up after Neil Gaiman's earlier story about Death of the Endless in The Sandman: A Game of You and features the characters Foxglove and Hazel McNamara. Unlike Gaiman's earlier story, The High Cost of Living, Death herself does not appear until the end of the first issue and the story itself focuses primarily on Foxglove and Hazel with Death serving as an interlocutor for them to discuss their hopes and fears. Fans of Gaiman's writing and his method of exploring larger themes will enjoy this volume, but those who want a story in which Death makes more of an appearance might find the story lacking. ( )

Death: The Time of Your Life is another story which includes Hazel and Foxglove, their son, and Death. You need to have read Death: The High Cost of Living and the volume of the main series which involves them, or you won't really get what the big deal is. It's quite a strange story, in which Hazel actually makes a deal with Death -- something apparently unheard of, and which certainly doesn't seem to fit into The Sandman canon. It basically has a message about/from Death: that she and her job, in a sense, remind us to live. Still, it's not really a story about Death, despite the title, it's a follow up on Foxglove.

It's an interesting little story, the art is good, and it's good to see some old characters again. Again, like many of the spinoffs, not wonderfully special. ( )

Well drawn, a little story of death ( )

I do enjoy his portrayal of death. Endlessly (heh) fascinating. ( )

Death is a hugely likeable character, more so than Dream who on occasion doth get on my tittenz, and I like that Gaiman writes the kind of characters who might be considered not mainstream enough for the traditional comic (or maybe he just has a thing about lesbians). So, it's a little sad that despite the things I really like in this particular story, it left me a little bored and detached. The ruminations about life, death and meaning were there, but felt inaccessible. I could sympathise with the characters, but they and the story were easily forgettable.

Not one of my favourites. ( )
