    3.5 stars I want to start off by saying "wow" that art was absolutely incredible. Well done. This comic is not a typical read for me but I had received it in a Comic Bento subscription box so I figured I'd give it a try. The world building is interesting. Human souls are used to fuel an endless war against heaven and hell with Death stuck in the middle. His court will rise up and end the fighting. This book is a collection of their origin stories, my favorite being the Siren. I honestly just wanted 3.5 stars I want to start off by saying "wow" that art was absolutely incredible. Well done.

This book is a collection of their origin stories, my favorite being the Siren. I honestly just wanted to keep reading about her. Go back a little further before she became a siren and then the after. She was the most compelling to me. I liked the way everything was written in a very flowery but trickstery type approach. It felt like I was in a middle age court where everyone pretends to like each other with riddle like prose all whilst hiding a dagger behind their backs. Well done all around.

    I ordered my book directly from Sideshow Collectibles and read it immediately. The 9 comics previously produced for THE COURT OF THE DEAD are included as well as some behind the scenes content. I have to say the color graphics are incredible. The story of how Death and his court rise up to deal with the warring factions of Heaven and Hell. I adore this series of tales, and learning how the various characters were created by Death and why. I want to dive into this book and stay.

I want to dive into this book and stay. The tale is rich in detail for being a comic book but carefully planned out. It's like watching a fantastic play. A find companion piece to the hardback Court of the Dead book which explains how the original characters come to be. These are the tales and the intrigues. A must have for any fan and what a conversation piece. Everyone will want to read it/steal it. It will be released in time for Halloween -- let Death's Queen know you are with her by ordering your copy.

    COURT OF THE DEAD completely enthralled me, so as soon as I learned there was a collection of comics, I snatched up the paperback. I'm head over heels for this unique take on the afterlife and the beings who rule it viciously. Each story focuses on a select member from one of the factions and is accompanied by absolutely beautiful artwork. Like the book that inspired it, there is little by way of connecting story. Mostly, this is a collection meant to introduce you to some unique and dangerous i COURT OF THE DEAD completely enthralled me, so as soon as I learned there was a collection of comics, I snatched up the paperback.

    Insight Comics seems to be a new company, but this tome full of short stories does act as a good introduction to the company's setting and characters. It's a fantasy/horror type of thing involving a land of the dead trying to survive in the middle of the never-ending war between Heaven and Hell. Sample this, and if you like it, look up more stuff.

    It came across as short stories in the same Universe. Yes, it's all connected and the same characters. Perhaps this is just setting up for the next books. I felt it was all introducing each character. Still an interesting read with creative, detailed and gruesome character design! It came across as short stories in the same Universe.

    Some stories had better art than others. Sometimes the story was a little too disjointed to easily follow. Overall, interesting and I would consider reading more later on.
