Death at Death's Door

by WinterGrimm

A graphic novel with art and story by Jill Thompson. Its the mythic story that asks what would happen if Lucifer decided to give up the power of hell and all of the souls that were in hell crash at Death's place. There is another plot that follows her (Death's) younger brother Dream or Morpheus and his delema of having the key to hell in his posession and debating on what to do with it. In the mean time many other supernatural entities vie for control of hell including the demon Azazel, Egyptian god Anubus, and father of the Aesir, Odin. This story, a spin off of Neil Gaiman's Sandman is a blast to read and has alot of great dark humor. For Sandman fans its a must, as well as anime and manga fans because Jill's style is very remeniscent of a Japanese manga. It says vol. 1 on the cover but I'm unsure as to whether more have been released or if there even is anymore to release. Since I read this I'm probably going to go and pick up all 10 volumes of Sandman.
