One of the most celebrated writers in the history of comics teams up once again with one of the industry's most accomplished artists! For the first time in nine years, since the award-winning 50th issue of Sandman, Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell once again venture into the world of myth and angels. Constructing and maintaining all of heaven and earth is an immense task, which God has divided up amongst the various ranks and stations of angels. As with any such huge effort, there are bound to be casualties. This unique passion play sheds light on the hands behind creation, as well as one lonely man in Los Angeles who gets to hear the whole story of a most unspeakable crime: a murder in paradise! P. Craig Russell adapts Neil Gaiman's poignant short story with the subtlety and grace which earned him two Eisner Awards last year for his work on Dark Horse's Ring of the Nibelung series. The reunion of these two legendary comics creators is a guaranteed masterpiece.

This was my first Neil Gaiman comic. It. could debatably by my last. While I do like Neil Gaiman in general this was trash in my opinion. There is one thing about the thing I liked. That's it. Just one (which I will share down the line). And let me also start off with informing readers-this is...
**I received a copy of this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review** This was a Meh all round. It's the first time I've ever been less then impressed with a product carrying Neil Gaiman's name. When it comes to graphic novels, I don't mind a bad story too much if the artwork is outstandin...
I liked the story here very much. I don’t think I’ve actually read the prose version (which is a little surprising to me), but it has a very nice dual structure, with the main, internal story adding to and reflecting the more opaque ‘shell’ story. When I finished; I wanted to go back to the beginnin...
Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley. I got this via Netgalley because the original short story is one that I loved. This comic version of it, I do not. Perhaps it is because what works in prose form doesn’t always work in picture. Perhaps it is because I really don’t n...
So... unsettling, really. It's also beautiful, and intricately woven, but them I am a sucker for stories dealing with the Fall--the events leading to Lucifer's turning away from/ being ejected from Heaven. Which is exactly what this is, framed within a very painful modern-day story.
