Reading Journal Entry: Death: At Death's Door, by Jill Thompson

Punk/goth meets anime in this retelling, from Death's perspective, of certain events originally told in the Sandman series. Hell is closed - and the dead start showing up at Death's door. And her sister Delirium throws a party for them.

It's fun. The art is fun, the writing is fun, the idea of Edgar Allen Poe with a crush on Despair is fun. I'm not too sure what the point is - and I can't recommend this as a starting point for the Sandman universe - but it's fun.
