Death: At Death's Door is a comic penned and inked in manga-style, by Jill Thompson, author of the Little Endless. It seems to take a more child-friendly and humorous approach, through the eyes of one of the more popular of the Endless characters, Death, to the storyline Season of Mists. The story begins with brief profiles of each of the Endless, a reference to manga where brief character bios (in statistic form) are often displayed in the margins, and then segues right into Destiny's council

I like Sandman a lot, I like Death a lot. I sometimes like manga. However, there's something not quite right about this book. It may be seeing the Endless lose their temper, it may be the many many pages without such a good story, or it may be the use of cheap blinks at sandman fans just to win them over but without really making good use of stuff like, for example, green mouse and telephone icecream. Dream screaming may have done it for me. From that moment on I just didn't take the book or the story too seriously and I ended up having more fun with it. After all, it is what it says it is: A party at Death's door held pretty much by Delirium... What would you expect?
Don't get me wrong, I liked the book. Some of the drawings, especially of Death, are great, and I laughed at the jokes about the perky goth girl. It's just that I think the book isn't really at Sandman level and I expected a bit more from Jill Thompson (though I do give her points for drawing AND writing it) because it sometimes looked like fanfic.
Still, a Sandman fan must. (Though I certainly do not crave for a second part (it says "N° 1" on the cover))

Let me start by saying I am a huge Sandman fan/addict. Withdrawals were hitting me hard, so I picked up the 3 Death books: The High Cost of Living, The Time of Your Life, and At Death's Door. At Death's Door was obviously the only book that Neil Gaiman didn't write. Turn an intellectual story, that is considered literature by some critics, into a dumbed-down manga, and this is what you get.
The story quotes from Season of Mists and has the same major characters, but the content is largely in contrast with Gaiman's Sandman atmosphere. Death is no longer a mature adult woman that generally looks on the bright side of things, but is written like an overly dramatic 15 year-old girl. This works well for Delerium, but that's because she was originally written as a 15 year-old girl with attention problems, but it totally butchers the Death character.
This is a minor thing, but it proves how little effort was put into the writing. In the introduction there is a reference to Death: The Time of Your Life and to Foxglove and Hazel's son "Ralphie". The kid's name was Alvie. This leads me to believe Jill Thompson was not at all familiar with the Sandman stories before she started At Death's Door, and as a consequence anyone who bought this had to suffer.

This is a cuter side of Death. I enjoy the pics that go with it. This makes me want to check out some of the graphic novels with her in them. It does however say, Death #1... and that is all there is. There is no #2 or #3 or so on. So it seems strange that they put #1 on it when there was never any others released. Maybe this one did not sell well, or maybe they are just trying to get my hopes up. Either way, strange or not, I wish there was more.

Arrived in good condition and it was a fair price

Meh. That's pretty much my unprofessional opinion on this book.

-I understand that this is simply a personal preference, but I am not a fan of using grayscale in graphic novels. It makes everything drab and it's hard for me to mentally fill in the color.

-To be honest, I found it hard to follow. Everything moved along really fast and there were too many names that started with D. I found skipping between panels to be almost random, and it didn't follow a cohesive string, in my opinion.

+ I like the concept of Death being a goth girl. It's a cool twist, and I really liked the way that she was drawn.

-This felt like a fan fiction to me, not an official manga published by DC comics. It just felt like this was done unprofessionally, and to me, that is not a very good thing.

This was my first attempt at manga. I'll give it another shot, but not from Jill Thompson. If you like The Sandman by Neil Gaiman and manga, maybe this is up your alley. If you're just starting out with this medium, I recommend getting something else first.

Diehard Sandman fans may be annoyed at Thompson's creative re-imagining of Gaiman's world. Though At Death's Door is not exactly heavy on substance, it is filled with plenty of amusement. The story runs parallel to The Sandman: A Season of Mists. While Dream is dealing with his unwanted ownership of Hell, his sister Death discovers that Hell's evicted tenants are now squatting in her modest apartment. Delirium and Despair, the other females of the Endless, show up for basically no reason and help Death deal with the problem, using their imaginations, lots of antics, and plenty of grrrl power.

Thompson has chosen to draw this silly story in the appropriate style of shoujo manga, lending a very different tone to the Sandman universe. Even those moments drawn directly from A Season of Mists have a different character, in keeping with shoujo-style melodrama. There is a lot less brooding and a lot more yelling. Delirium seems to have reverted temporarily to Delight; gone are her hallmark leather-and-fishnet outfits, replaced by a parade of summer and party dresses. Her morose self-absorption has also moved aside for a cheery, outgoing, and thoroughly zany personality. Even Despair seems upbeat.

Fans of The Sandman should find the volume amusing but of little consequence. They will likely notice that scenes from A Season of Mists have been poorly--sometimes painfully--forced into this volume. The story of Dream's dealings with Hell is more like an excuse for At Death's Door than an explanation or background. Fans of manga unfamiliar with The Sandman may be a little confused about some sequences. And if they use this as an entrypoint into the Sandman series, they may be disappointed to find that the "canonical" Endless are harder on the eyes than Thompson's manga versions, and the stories, though containing (often macabre) humor, are frequently grim.
