As the world's oldest and most powerful witch, Thessaly has
learned through millennia of experience to be prepared for
almost anything. But she could never have foreseen the persistence
of one lovesick ghost named Fetch - or the conniving, underhanded
lengths he would go to in order to win her heart. Attaching
her name to a monster slaying business behind her back is
one thing, by agreeing to take on the universe's ultimate
destructive force - well, that just proves that love makes
you stupid. Faced with this kind of courtship, it'll be a
miracle if Thessaly can survive long enough to smack some
sense into Fetch's intangible head - never mind stopping the
unstoppable doom he's unleashed...
Witch For Hire is
a collection that no self-respecting Sandman fan should
be without. From the first few pages it's obvious that this
release means business. And the great thing is, you don't
even have to be a Sandman fan to appreciate this. In
fact, if you've never even read a Sandman story, you
can still pick up Thessaly and latch onto the characters
in no time.
story is simple. Fetch, a ghost, has been sending monsters
to Thessaly, whose been in hiding, for ages. She was a little
curious as to how they'd all managed to find her. When she
slays them all, Fetch informs her that there may be one more.
A crazy old man told him that he was haunted by a monster.
Fetch humoured the old timer and told him that he would rid
him of this "imagined" beast. However, it transpires
that the beast is indeed real and the one thing that Thessaly
can never kill. So Fetch and Thessaly set about trying to
do what they know is impossible - slay the beast before it
tears them apart.
art work for this collection is fantastic, and the writing
is spot on - leaving you wanting more. I particularly liked
the scenes where Thessaly goes around letting loose all the
demons she has kept prisoner - for goodness knows how long.
