Death: At Death's Door

Author: Jill Thompson; Status: In Season

Hell’s closed for business, and that means one thing: dead man’s party! For her dip into the Sandman mythos, writer-artist Jill Thompson uses the Dream-doesn’t-know-what-to-do-with-the-key-to- Hell story line (see Season of Mists) as a backdrop for a tale of sisters Death, Delirium, and Despair and their frothy solution to a deluge of the dead. Funnier – and much girlier – than most Sandman tales, it’s both a welcome return to that world and a neat diversion from it.
