For those of you who like comic books, Neil Gaiman, or both, I thought you’d like to know that Vertigo Comics has the first issue of Death: The High Cost of Living available as a free download. Here is a synopsis of the comic from their site:
From the pages of Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN comes the young, pale, perky, and genuinely likable Death. One day in every century, Death walks the Earth to better understand those to whom she will be the final visitor. Today is that day. As a young mortal girl named Didi, Death befriends a teenager and helps a 250-year old homeless woman find her missing heart. What follows is a sincere musing on love, life and (of course) death.
I haven’t read it yet, but I have downloaded it read when I get some “free time”. Enjoy!
