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. ( )

Wow, 5 stars for that whole first half, so eerie and interesting. I loved the opening when Hazel takes the baby out in the rain, and something bad has happened. And when Larry appears with a warning, it's so good. I really really liked watching Foxglove go through her paces. It was really great.I wasn't nuts about the story once it came together, though, the deals with Death and the visit to her realm. It was a little simplistic, so, not as exciting as its surroundings. Still, loved it. ( )

Haiku summary

A New York Times Best Seller! From the pages of Newbery Medal winner Neil Gaiman's THE SANDMAN comes fan-favorite character Death collecting her solo adventures! 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.' Collects the DEATH: THE HIGH COST OF LIVING and DEATH: THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE miniseries, a must have for any fan.… (more)
