About the Author
Neil Gaiman is the New York Times bestselling author of the Newbery Medal-winning The Graveyard Book and Coraline, the basis for the hit movie. His other books include Anansi Boys, Neverwhere, American Gods, and Stardust, (winner of the American Library Association's Alex Award as one of 2000's top novels for young adults) as well as the short story collections M Is for Magic and Smoke and Mirrors. He is also the author of The Wolves in the Walls and The Day I Traded My Dad for Two Goldfish, both written for children. Among his many awards are the Eisner, the Hugo, the Nebula, the World Fantasy, and the Bram Stoker. Originally from England, he now lives in the United States. Chris Bachalo is an artist whose body of comic book work covers a wide spectrum of genres; ranging from fantasy and science fiction to super hero and action-adventure. His work for DC Comics includes stints on the critically acclaimed Sandman series, Death: The High Cost of Living, and Shade: The Changing Man for DC's Vertigo imprint as well as the creator-owned projects The Witching Hour, with co-creator Jeph Loeb, and Steampunk, with co-creator Joe Kelly. His other comic book work includes among others Wolverine & the X-Men, Captain America, and the quirky Generation X, which he co-created with Scott Lobdell for Marvel Comics. In addition to his comics work, Chris has provided artwork for publications such as MAD Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, and Playstation Magazine, and for companies such as Activision, EA Games and Def Jam Records. Chris is a Canadian citizen and was born in Portage La Prairie, Canada. He currently resides in Southern California with his wife, Helen, his son, Dylan, and his Siamese fighting fish, Spike Four. Born in 1966 in the English seaside town of Clevedon, Mark Buckingham has worked in comics professionally for the past twenty years. In addition to illustrating all of Neil Gaiman's run on the post-Alan Moore Miracleman in the early 1990s, Buckingham contributed inks to The Sandman and its related miniseries Death: The High Cost of Living and Death: The Time of Your Life as well as working on various other titles for Vertigo and Marvel through the end of the decade. In 2002 he took over as the penciller for Bill Willingham's Fables, which has gone on to become one of the most popular and critically acclaimed Vertigo titles of the new millennium. When not in Clevedon, Buckingham can be found with his wife Irma in the Asturias region of northern Spain.

Beautifully bound and full of Death. I'm a hardcore fan of Death, but not a hardcore Endless fan. So this was a total win for me! I got into The Books of Magic in the very beginning of that series. So I know some Death featured there too, and bought The Books of Magic 30th Anniversary Edition as a companion to Absolute Death. Tim Hunter and Death have a kind of cool interaction in BoM, so if you're a diehard Death freak like I am, you might want to check that out too. Ok, and one last thing because I can. Amazon is selling the Death shirt I wanted in the 90s. It was sold out when I tried to get one Back In The Day, but is available for all Death cult members. Back then, I was only able to find the other Death shirt, which I bought because it was the only one left! And I still did buy the postcard with the art I wanted.....and the Vertigo Tarot Deck 😜. Now though....One might say I've Died and gone to Heaven.
It's to die for!

If you're even considering buying this you probably already know how good Neil Gaiman's Death stories are, so I'll just focus on the book itself. You get both Death ministries (The High Cost of Living and The Time of Your Life), issues #8 (The Sound of Her Wings) and #19 (Facade), as well as two other short stories that I hadn't seen before. The extras are also very nice: we get the full Death gallery and a ton of promotional drawing and material, as well as the original script for The Sound of Her Wings, which is extremely cool (I always wished this was the script they had included in Absolute Sandman #1, so it's great to have it here). And of course the oversize artwork is gorgeous. If you already own the Absolute Sandman, this one is really a no-brainer; and if you're just looking to pick up the Death stories, well, this is the nicest looking collection of them you'll find by far :-)
