On sale now in comics shops and bookstores everywhere are two new hardcover graphic novels that are essential reading not just for fans of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, but for their children as well. Written and fully painted by Jill Thompson, Delirium's Party sees the artist return to the world of The Endless for a new all-ages tale depicted in her trademark fanciful style. Also on sale is a new hardcover edition of The Little Endless Storybook, another of Thompson's popular all-ages twists on the Vertigo characters.

In 2001's A Little Endless Storybook, Jill Thompson set talking puppy Barnabas on a quest to find his missing companion, Delirium of the Endless. Along the way Barnabas inquires within the realms of all Delirium's esoteric siblings, Death, Dream, Desire, Despair, Destruction and Destiny. In Delirium's Party, Thompson tells a new tale of the childlike Endless as Delirium tries to cheer Despair up by throwing her a characteristically strange soiree.

Also the author of the English language Endless manga Dead: At Death's Door and a contributor to such Vertigo highlights as Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall, House of Mystery, The Invisibles, The Sandman and Finals, Jill Thompson's Little Endless Storybooks are worth picking up for the beautiful artwork alone, but lovers of Neil Gaiman's compelling fantasy worlds will enjoy Thompson's especially whimsical twists on the Sandman mythos. Both hardcover books can be purchased now from finer comics shops and bookstores everywhere, including Things From Another World.

The diminutive versions of the Endless from Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN mythos are back by popular demand in DELIRIUM'S PARTY: A LITTLE ENDLESS STORYBOOK.

In an effort to rid Despair of her unhappiness once and for all, Little Delirium throws a party for her dour sister and invites siblings Dream, Destruction, Death, Destiny and Desire. But this is no ordinary affair. We're talking about a party planner who is the personification of delirium, so you can only imagine that this event will be as outrageous and unpredictable as Little Delirium's haircolor. But whether Delirium's party will be a smashing success – or whether it will end in tears – is anyone's guess.

Brought to life through whimsical prose and watercolor by multiple award-winner Jill Thompson, DELIRIUM'S PARTY: A LITTLE ENDLESS STORYBOOK will be an affair to remember for all time – and all ages.
