When the last living thing dies, my job is finished. I’ll put the chairs on tables, turn out the lights and lock the universe behind me when I leave.

So, I made this. Goldie’s hands were the most difficult bit. I wanted them to look more human and less cartoony.

Death: Rebirth

Death is necessary for Rebirth to spring from its fertile remains.

In Sandman, Neil Gaiman’s Death is often depicted as someone you’d be pleased to meet at the end of your life. Drawing on a myriad of funerary goddess myths akin to Isis and the apocryphal Eve, Death was not so much a Grim Reaper as she was a guide into the next phase of being. Perhaps it is no small coincidence that Eve brought life to humanity and Isis resurrected her dead brother-husband, linking the notion of rebirth so inextricably and cyclically to death.

And like a modern birth/funerary goddess myth, Death herself reflects rebirth with her entire countenance and approach towards life. It is this aspect that I wished to capture.

Poppies are for remembrance. And for Dreams.

Change. Change. Chaaange. When you say words a lot they don’t mean anything. Or maybe they don’t mean anything anyway, and we just think they do.

BEHOLD: DAVE MCKEAN’S FIRST ‘SANDMAN’ COVER IN YEARS AND A NEW ‘OVERTURE’ PAGE BY JH WILLIAMS III

By Andy Khouri

Vertigo’s The Sandman prequel by Neil Gaiman and JH Williams III is DC Comics’ biggest publishing story of the year, so we can expect more and more items like this Entertainment Weekly piece in which one or two tantalizing images are released over a period of months. Normally this would be kind of annoying, but the truth is it is very good news that Gaiman and Williams are revisiting the early Sandman era and telling the story about what the titular lord of dreams was actually up to before his capture at the start of the classic series, and every teased image will be beautiful — especially if they happen to be created byclassic Sandman cover artist Dave McKean.

EW notes that The Sandman: Overture is Gaiman’s first Morpheus story since 1996, which is of course not accurate. The last Gaiman wrote a story featuring the original Sandman of his perennial series was in the 2003 graphic novel The Sandman: Endless Nights — which was also the last time McKean drew paintedillustrated photographed manifested a Sandman cover. McKean’s Overture piece invokes the multimedia collage effect and logo remix treatments of his many, many creations for The Sandman’s 75 issues and numerous compilation volumes, but with a modern sheen that seems to catch the eye and tell the reader to get ready for something weird.

“There is something special about Dave McKean that makes it feel real,” Gaiman told EW. “I get the same thrill I got 25 years ago seeing his covers…”

Also released was JH Williams III’s first page of the first issue, which while revealing little about the story does express the kind of visual approach the artist is taking with this most anticipated story.

My daughter Helena as Delirium and myself as Death from Sandman at Vancouver Fan Expo!
I’ve cosplayed for years, so my daughter has grown up seeing me in all kinds of costumes, but outside of Halloween stuff hadn’t taken much interest in dressing up herself so I never pushed the idea of cosplaying on her. Some of her favorite books in her collection are the little endless books about Deliriums adventures, she’s even shown them off at show and tell at school. So I’d been talking to her about this upcoming con I was going to and working at and she excitedly asked me if she could dress up as Delirium and have me go with her as Death. I was beyond excited at her request and quickly whipped these costumes up for us! Was so fun having her along with me and she really loved coming with me to a con for the first time. It was also awesome having her be the one who wanted to do the costume as she was in character the whole time introducing herself as Delirium and singing about her fishy balloon, even had her stuffed dog “Maribelle” cosplay with her as Barnabas.

You have no idea how happy this makes me.

*gasp*
