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.

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.

This multi-part statue is a must-have for Superman fans. High atop the roof of a Metropolis skyscraper, a family born from the ashes of Krypton stands tall, guardians and hope bringers to the people of the city.
The statue is made up of three separate pieces (sold in two parts) which form a single statue.
Solicited this month is Part 1 of the SUPERMAN FAMILY MULTI-PART STATUE, featuring Superboy and Power Girl, with the upper half of Superman. Part 2 (to be solicited next month) features Supergirl and Steel, and the lower half of Superman and eagle base detail. The bases of each piece slide together to form a multi-tiered rooftop on which all the characters stand. Each of the two parts includes a piece of the third portion of the statue, which can be easily assembled to form Superman, who rises up from the center of the piece. Both parts of the statue are needed to make Superman.
This hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statue measures approximately 10.15” high x 8” wide x 8.9” deep, while the entire multi-part statue measures approximately 10.15” high x 17” wide x 8.9” deep when fully assembled.
