Neil Gaiman’s Death: The High Cost Of Living was one of the first comics that actually hit me on an emotional level. Before that, comics were funny, or adventurous, but seldom about existence on an almost visceral level. I still reread it regularly, although I seldom take the actual issues out of their sleeves.
A band of voice actors now translated the first issue of that series into an audiodrama that quite nicely captures the varied layers of the comic. I particularly like how Mad Hattie (one of my all time favourite Gaiman characters, together with Bilquis and the Marquis de Carabas) comes to life. Death is chilling though, in her lack of emotion.
Hello again, by the way.
