Last Temptation
by Neil Gaiman, Michael Zulli, & Alice Cooper
Paperback: 104 pages
Dark Horse Comics
ISBN: 156971455X
Steven is afraid. Afraid of ghost stories, afraid of growing up ... just afraid. That is, until he meets the mysterious Showman and his Theatre of the Real. Steven takes a ticket and watches the show on a dare, but getting out of the performance will be harder than he ever imagined. And Steven learns what it is to be truly afraid.
Neil Gaiman, internationally acclaimed writer of both prose fiction (Neverwhere, Stardust) and graphic novels (The Sandman, Signal to Noise) and artist Michael Zulli (The Sandman, The Dreaming) team up to create this dark and brooding morality tale. Originally published as part of the short-lived Marvel Music line of the early `90s, this stunning trade paperback features sepia-colored ink on cream paper to better showcase the lush beauty of Zulli`s duoshade artwork in an affordable 6x9 format.

From Publishers Weekly
A spooky collaboration between novelist and comics writer Gaiman (Sandman; and see review of American Gods, above) and creepy shock rocker Cooper, this is the story of Steven, a boy with many fears: girls, ghost stories and growing up among them. On a dare, he steps into an odd theater and meets a mysterious, top-hatted showman, an Alice Cooper-like figure (complete with dark eye-circles) who offers him a way to avoid his fears by simply giving up his "potential" and staying forever in a dreamy netherworld of spirits and wraiths. And after encountering Mercy, a beautiful ticket-taker in the ghostly theater, Steven gives the offer serious consideration. Cooper is the inspiration for the Grand Guignol of this demonic theater, a chilling metaphor for the seductive allure of complacency and indolence. Gaiman's story is a whimsical horror tale about confronting the fears within, and Zulli's black-and-white illustrations have a dark, emotive line, presented in a brownish, bloodlike hue that makes even a mundane, autumnal street scene seem eerie and foreboding.

Order Black Orchid by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean
by Neil Gaiman & Dave McKean
Paperback: 160 pages
DC Comics
ISBN: 0930289552
BLACK ORCHID is one of Neil Gaiman's early forays into comics for DC Comics. It his revamp of a little-known superheroine who is a hybrid of human and orchid, with the ability to control minds with the use of scent. As befitting to a story that utilizes a lot of flora and fauna as metaphors, the fully-painted artwork is lush and almost want to reach out and touch the leaves of a tree or smell the flowers. Look for cameos from well-known DC characters such as Lex Luthor, Batman, Poison Ivy, the Mad Hatter, and others.
The Books of Magic
by Neil Gaiman, John Bolton, Charles Vess,
Scott Hampton, & Paul Johnson
Introduction by Roger Zelazny
Paperback: 196 pages
Warner Books
ISBN: 1563890828
In this supernatural tour-de-force by award winning writer Neil Gaiman, DC's occult characters guide young Tim Hunter on his journey through the awakening of his own magic.
With BOOKS OF MAGIC, Neil Gaiman pulls together various loose threads in the DC Universe, and creates a consistent realm of magic through the familiar theme of a young boy exploring a strange world. Gaiman intertwines stories of ancient sorcerers, modern-day magicians whose sleight-of-hand is only a convenient front, and the evolution of humans - and magic - in the future.
Various DC characters make appearances, notably Gaiman's Dream, Destiny, and Death of the Endless. The choice of artists for each chapter is perfect, so we have a John Bolton Merlin and a wonderful Charles Vess Fairyland . The book gives us glimpses of many characters and stories that could use further development, but it stands alone as a powerful parable of the roles of faith, power, and, of course, magic, in our lives.
The Day I Swapped My Dad for 2 Goldfish
A child's book
by Neil Gaiman & Dave McKean
White Wolf Publishing Inc.
ISBN: 1565041992
Written for children and the young at heart, Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean have teamed up once again to create an unforgettable story that takes its readers on a lavishly illustrated journey into the quirky mind of a young boy and the perils of striking a bargain.
Full color.
One day Nathan comes over with two goldfish named Sawney and Beaney. "I'll swap you them," says the little boy of the house. "What for?" asks Nathan. As it turns out, Nathan doesn't want anything that the boy and his little sister suggest for trading... not an old spaceship or even Clownie the clown. Finally, the boy has an idea, the kind of idea (like discovering "electricity or fire or outer space or something") that changes the whole world. He decides to swap his dad (the silent guy behind the newspaper) for two goldfish. After all, the boy brags, his dad is as big as 100 goldfish and he swims better than a goldfish ("Liar," says his little sister.) But Nathan agrees to take their dad anyway. When their mother gets home, she is very mad, and sends her kids over to Nathan's to get their dad back. Sadly, Nathan has already traded their dad for an electric guitar. Page upon hilarious page goes by, as the father is traded again and again. When they finally track him down, he is still reading the newspaper! (Mom makes them promise never to swap their dad for anything ever again, and they promise.) Comic masters Neil Gaiman and artist Dave McKean have created a wonderful graphic short story for all ages. The artwork is magnificent, funny, multi-textured, and scritchy--the perfect visual accompaniment to this hip, kid-friendly exploration of the perils of bartering family members.

by Neil Gaiman, Chris Bachalo, Mark Buckingham,
& Dave McKean
Paperback: 103 pages
DC Comics
ISBN: 1563891336
From the pages of THE SANDMAN LIBRARY, Neil Gaiman tells the story of the one day every hundred years when Death, older sister of The Sandman, walks among humans to gain a better understanding of the lives she takes.
Death takes a holiday.... 
Death spends one day as a mortal each century, to understand what it means to be the barrier between life and everything else... Gaiman is masterful here as usual. "Didi" spends a day with Sexton, a youth who's considering suicide, and her enthusiasm for the world makes him realize that maybe life is worth living. But Gaiman's tale is not sappy, or overly moral - it's simply a reminder that the most important thing to do in your life is to stop and remember you're alive. As Sexton says, "It would be nice if Death was like Didi... someone funny, and friendly, and maybe a little crazy." In Gaiman's poignant work (perfectly rendered by Chris Bachalo), Death becomes something worth living for.

Do you have someone you'd die for?
In the hands of most ordinary writers, this book would be a disaster. It juggles a myriad of complex issues, such as sexuality, the fleeting nature of fame, the multiple meanings of love, desire, and committment, and the value of friendship and life. Each of these concepts would be enough for a book on its own... Aren't we lucky that Neil Gaiman is definitely no ordinary writer? And his character of Death is extraordinary too; she cares.
Foxglove is struggling personally even as her fame shoots through the roof - she wonders whether she should stay in the closet, and whether she should stay with Hazel and their son Alvie or go it alone. Hazel is struggling too; she wants to know the value of her relationship, and to save her son's life, most of all. Death listens. Understandingly. Patiently. And because of her, Hazel and Foxglove realize what matters most to them. Though it lacks the immediacy and emotional power of Death: The High Cost Of Living, this is still a captivating companion piece. It carries through the same message as D:THCOL - the most important thing in life is to remember to live.
