Death: The High Cost of Living and Death: The Time of Your Life by Neil Gaiman

I’d have enjoyed these more if I’d read them the right way round… They were both still very good though.

I’ve been looking at graphic novels more this year and have read the first collection in the Sandman Library. In the last story Death turns up and I think I preferred her character. I went back to the library for more Sandman but the next book wasn’t there, so I picked up these instead, and I still think I like her more.

The High Cost of Living tells the story of her day as a mortal, takinggreat delight in simple things like eating, going to a nightclub etc while also searching for a 250 year-old mad woman’s heart. The Time of Your Life concentrates more on some characters who pop up briefly in the first one (which made more sense once I’d realised that). I didn’t like this as much, but it was still very good.

Definitely looking forward to more Sandman now 🙂
