“How would you feel about life if Death was your older sister?”
From the pages of Newbery Medal winner Neil Gaiman's The Sandman comes the young, pale, perky, fan-favourite character Death (Dream’s older sister) in a new Absolute Edition collecting her solo adventures! Featuring the miniseries Death: the High Cost of Living issues #1 to 3 in which Death befriends a teenager and helps a 250-year old homeless woman find her missing heart.
Also included is the Death: the Time of Your Life 3-issue miniseries featuring the story of a rising star in the music world wrestling with revealing her true sexual orientation just as her lover is lured into Death’s imminent realm. And enjoy a plethora of extras including the Death Talks About Life AIDS pamphlet (with help from John Constantine and a banana), stories from Vertigo: Winter’s Edge #2 and The Sandman: Endless Nights, the short story “The Wheel” from the 9-11 tribute book, Sandman #8 and #20 and extras from the Death Gallery one-shot along with an intro from Amanda Palmer, the lead singer of the hit musical group The Dresden Dolls!
It’s all combined right here for the first time in one volume. This Absolute Edition slipcased hardcover is also the perfect companion for The Absolute Sandman and ideal for fans of Gaiman’s sprawling, intimate comics work! Written by Neil Gaiman, with artwork by Mark Buckingham, Chris Bachalo, Jeffrey Jones, Dave McKean and Mark Pennington; features cover art by Dave McKean.
