really liked it

The devil kicks all the souls out of hell and locks the gates shut. With their newfound freedom, the damned wander throughout creation, causing varying degrees of chaos as they search for a new place to reside.

Hilarity ensues.

This story of what was going on outside of the main storyline of 'Season of the Mists', is a delight. It obviously does not have the gravity of the original tale, but that is just fine by me. With Death, Despair and Delirium leading the way, it is a very funny romp about how the they deal with the sudden influx of souls that, for some reason, want to be close to the Eldest Sister. It's a nice piece of whimsy that enhances the Sandman canon.
