Each one of these stories was exceptional! I loved how they packed a punch despite being short. ( )

Four standalone separate mini stories with the Dream King (or Death) making some sort of appearance in them. These four stories are definitely worth a change from the "graphic novel" format. Featuring Shakespeare, Element Girl, a couple novelists, and a bunch of cats. Includes the script to 'Calliope', which is a fun look behind the curtain of comic making. (I love that he asked Alan Moore to see his scripts for an example.) ( )

This volume is a little bit different from the other two. It's all about short stories, some of them are really good, the others are ok. Nevertheless, it was a very pleasant read. ( )

very good but seemed shorter. loved the cats. ( )

Just keeps getting better and better. I loved the Kelly Jones art, I loved the one-off stories, each one so unbelievably different from the one before.

This stuff is magic. ( )
