What to do when done, though? When I first picked up Sandman: Overture in Deluxe Hardcover last Christmas, I noticed an understated volume next to it simply called Death. Sounds fairly grim, I thought.

This review will focus on the edition of the book itself rather than the work of Neil Gaiman (who writes every story collected here), Chris Bachalo (who illustrates the main Death mini-series) and the plethora of talented artists, some of them real masters, that illustrate the rest of this book. You can find many great reviews about the stories included in this volume right here in Amazon, checking these links: Death: The High Cost of Living,Death: The Time of Your Life

ABOUT THE EDITION:
This is a very handsome, high quality book and an excellent alternative to the much more expensive Absolute Death edition if you have a budget to keep but want something better than average TPBs.

- The paper stock of this volume is glossy and heavy weight, and the printing quality is excellent.
- The book features a fully printed hardback under the dustjacket (unlike most of DC/Vertigo HCs that sport an awfully cheap black cardboard presentation).
- It's a solid glued-binding volume. Of course a sewn one would have been better, but given that this isn't a huge Omnibus edition there's very little gutter loss, so it's fine.

The page count of Death: The Deluxe Edition is of exactly 320 pages. It packs a lot of material and you get great stories and wonderful illustrations. Also included is a 2 page introduction by Tori Amos, originally published in 1994 and 3 pages worth of biographies of the main artists of the book. Unfortunately, I don't own the Absolute Death edition, so besides the presentation and the massive size of that volume, I can't tell if there are any differences content wise between the 2 editions.

CONCLUSION:
I'm really happy with this book, I think it's a great value. It looks like DC/Vertigo is definitely improving the standard of quality of their Deluxe line. Now all that I wish is that they eventually release the complete Sandman series in this same Deluxe HC format.

If you're reading this review, I'm going to guess that you're already acquainted with Death and the rest of the Endless (if not, get reading -- The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes (New Edition) (Sandman New Editions)). This edition is a perfect choice for people who are already in love with Death or want to get to know her better.

It's a collection of stories featuring Death, her "standalone" stories, a couple random bits (including a sex education leaflet featuring Death and a reluctant John Constantine), and some beautiful portraits of Death by various artists.

For the price, the quality is amazing. The cover is high quality, the dust cover is beautiful, the paper is glossy and heavy, and the printing is first rate. I bought it for myself, but my first thought in turning through the pages is what a great gift it would make for anybody who loves Gaiman and the world he created with Sandman (selfishly, though, I still kept mine for myself). Even if you own most of this content elsewhere, it's worth buying.

Death is a collection of Neil Gaiman's stories about, well, Death. Death of the Endless, to be more exact. From her first appearance in the pages of Sandman, to The High Cost of Living and The Price of Life, as well as other appearances, we get to see Death, not as a scary, vengeful apparition, but as a personable being who takes it upon herself to live one day every hundred years as one of us, to always keep in mind how precious to us the lives she comes to claim are.
Gaiman's writing is dark and rich and imaginative, inviting to reader to wander strange paths on a journey to oddly familiar yet hauntingly alien places.

Death in Neil Gaiman's universe is a Goth Chick.
Death in Neil Gaiman's universe has a sense of humor.
Death in Neil Gaiman's universe thinks Apples taste Absolutely Amazing (and I could swear I'd heard something similar about Death elsewhere ????)

Neil Gaiman's DEATH THE DELUXE EDITION is a MUST HAVE for every Collector!

I'm a comics fan from way back, (circa 1984) I remember when this series was new. I was curious about it, but hadn't read this title when it was new. ,I was still intrigued by the artwork. I love Chris Bachalo's art style and Gaiman's storytelling. Both set a distinctive mood. And you can't help but like death as it is portrayed here, it's a creative and charming rendition of a human concept.

I bought these issues after a childhood friend was murdered. I was looking for something to help me through the grieving period, put life into perspective, and remembered I had read these as a young teen. I honestly loved these spin offs more than The Sandman. Gaiman's personification of Death gives you heart when you thought yours was too broken to mend. I recommend this set for grieving teens and young adults.

If you've read Neil Gaiman's Sandman series then you are familiar with Dream's sister Death. Here the ever kind and loving gothic personification of life's end gets a series of stories all about her. A must have for any Sandman fan. And lets be honest, if you're a big enough fan to buy this for your collection, you might as well get the Deluxe edition. More Sandman goodness is always better than less.
The first story is part of The Sandman run as a sort of introduction to the character of Death. The rest of the stores are in the same universe but revolve around characters who fascinate or interact with Death instead of Morpheus. (Dream) There is a hard cover for people building a physical collection but the digital version is much more reasonably priced.
