Rowland and Paine, the dead British teenagers who first appeared in Neil Gaiman's The Sandman: Season of Mists, travel stateside to investigate a strange missing persons case at a posh International Academy for Girls.

Nor did Jill Thompson's manga-style run with the characters. The stories across all 12 issues of the Dead Boy Detectives are rich in ideas, but too many ideas. Neil Gaiman's original Sandman series provided an interesting set-up for the characters, but every time they're dug up, they're stripped of all characteristics except their English accents and crammed into crummy stories written, somewhat confusingly, for 'mature audiences. Transitions between lines of dialogue, between pages, between groups of panels - they consistently lack coherence.

Not what I expected. Not much happens, and non-supernatural storyline (dead boys, aside, that is).

Jill Thompson, The Dead Boy Detectives (Vertigo, 2005)

Thompson gives us another riff on Sandman, as she did in Death's Door the year before. This time, we get an adventure from two relatively minor characters from A Season of Mists, a pair of young ghost detectives who head off to Chicago to solve the mystery of a missing schoolgirl. When they get there, they find out it's an all-girl school. Wackiness ensues. Thompson's manga-style art is appealing, and while the ending is at least somewhat predictable (as are Thompson's constant jabs at anachronism, here extended to both characters rather than having them play off one another as Gaiman did), Thompson manages to throw in yet another pop-culture twist that's liable to floor the reader. Ultimately a minor Sandman spinoff, but an enjoyable one nonetheless. *** ½

Though it's hardly up to the epic storytelling of the Sandman series that inspired it, Jill Thompson's little spin-off title is a quirky, enjoyable, and affordable read.
