bookshelves: sf-and-fantasy
Read in January, 2012

Much more confident than the previous volume, with finer artwork and a more consistent tone, despite the variety of strytelling devices and styles.The stand-alone piece about the human Death decides to make immortal isn't as interesting as it could have been (despite living for over half a millenium the guy doesn't seem to learn very much), and as for the main plot I think Gaiman finds serial killers more fascinating than I do, but still, it's full of memorable images, characters and narrative twists and turns.
