As much as I love Dream, Death is my favorite Endless character in the Sandman universe.

She is such a happy person especially when you consider her "responsibility". I want more stories about her.

Excellent tale of how Sandman/Morpheus' sibling, Death, becomes mortal for one day every set period of time in order to learn about what it is to be alive. Neil Gaiman's storytelling abilities are amazing and his work doesn't disappoint. Long time readers will also see some marked improvements in Chris Bachalo's pencils from this book to his current work in Uncanny X-Men. If you've read the Sandman series, you want to add this to your must read list.

**CONTAINS PROFANITY**
"My name is Sexton Furnival, but I'm pretty much used to it by now, and this is the last thing I'm ever going to write. This is because there's no point to anything, and I've thought about this hard and long. Okay. I figure, I'm mature. I know my own mind. I'm sixteen - almost sixteen and a half. And what have I got to show for it? For a start I don't have anybody I'm in love with. To be honest, I think love is complete bullshit. I don't think anyone ever loves anyone. I think the best people ever get is horny: horny and scared, so when they find someone who makes them horny, and they get too scared of the world outside, they stay together and they call it love."
- beginning of Sexton's suicide note
