Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this manga-esque spin-osff of Neil Gaiman's popular series, Thompson presents a retelling of some of the events of the fourth "Sandman" volume, Season of Mists, interspersed with new material of her own. Here, the Sandman (a.k.a. Dream) goes to Hell to try to free an old lover, and Lucifer, who has closed Hell and sent away all of the demons and souls, gives Dream the key to Hell. As Dream deals with the various gods and other beings who desire the key, Dream's sister, the popular goth girl Death, throws a party for Hell's inhabitants. Thompson's Death is undeniably cute, and the retelling of the original story in shojo manga (girls' comics) style is compelling, but the comedy at Death's party clashes with the seriousness of Dream's story. This is probably a better introduction to "Sandman" for manga fans than vice versa, but those who are already fans of both will be entertained. There's a bit of nudity (actually, Despair is always nude). Recommended for older teens and adults, wherever "Sandman" is popular. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Saving The After World

    I loved this. The drawings were amazing and I liked the idea of Delerium deciding to throw a party! I would reccomed this to anyone who can handle a little morbid humor and an AWESOME story. It made me want to save the after-world!

    Death:All a Girl Wants is Her Couch.

    I've read all the Sandman graphic novels,and just recently read Endless Nights.I remembered this was about the house,and figured what the hey.It's Seasons of the Mist,from Death's perspective.She told Dream the dead were returning,but said nothing to him they were crashing in her pad.With the help of Despair and Delirium,she seems to keep things in some minor control while the Dream King decides who should own Lucifer Morningstar's realm,after his abdication.Besides,all she really wants is her couch....and her fish.I think this book is for anyone who's ever had a sibling who has put them in a dilemma of any kind.You'll get a kick of this.Trust me.
