Some envision Death as a grim reaper or dark angel to be feared. But as created by Neil Gaiman for DC Comics’ line of Vertigo comics, the Sandman`s older sister is pretty, perky and always gets the job done. She`s been around since the beginning of time and is exactly the kind of girl you`ll want to follow into the unknown.

A collection of comics by the legendary creator of Scrooge McDuck, Carl Barks.
The Big Book of Carl Barks’ Barney Bear reprints these strips for the first time in color and in English, and while I’ve never heard of it before, it’s high on the list of things I want to pick up. As much as I love Barks’ work on the Duck books — and Yoe’s previous collections of “lost” classics like Dan DeCarlo’s Jetta — this one’s an easy sell.
