First appearing in "Weird Mystery Tales" #1 from 1972, Destiny predates Neil Gaiman's work with the Endless in the "Sandman" series and, like Death, is able to work as the driving force of a short story of his own if not a continuing series. Alisa Kwitney's "Destiny: A Chronicle of Deaths Foretold" shows Destiny as the cause of the Plague of Justinian (541–542) after creating Pestilence, who brings the plague through time, causing the later Black Death during the 1300s, the Eyam plague outbreak in 1665, and a 21st century recurrence of the bubonic plague. Kwitney uses these parallel narratives to explore Destiny's role in the DC/Vertigo universe with art by Kent Williams, Michael Zulli, Scott Hampton, and Rebecca Guay to give each time period its own unique aesthetic. This story could be read as a companion to Gaiman's "Sandman" series or as a continuance of Destiny's older incarnation, as Kwitney only mentions the other Endless in a passing manner and none of them make an appearance. The open ending could either set up a future standalone Destiny story or feed back into the "Sandman" series or DC Universe at large.

Although I like Neil Gaiman and Destiny is one of my favorites character, this graphic novel wasn't my cup of tea. I expected it to be better and Destiny to be more... himself. It was a waste of money if you ask me. But I kept it because I am a fan.

I've recently re-read this and after noticing the mixed-reviews, felt compelled to write my own. What I noticed in most of the other reviews, is that everyone seems to bring their own expectations to what a Sandman-related story should be. But like Destiny himself, it's better to approach this story without any preconceptions of what it should be. Others have commented on the mixed art styles. For me, the art is always secondary to the writing. I loved the mixture of styles and found that particular choice enhanced the story. Other reviewers have tried to explain their take on what the story is about, but I didn't feel they really hit the mark. The story rewards careful reading and re-reading and as in most art, one should be careful to avoid just accepting someone else's interpretation of it. For me, what I require most, is that the story flows and remains interesting. I also look for snippets of genius within, that let me know I'm on a journey with a talented writer that will catch me off guard and make me think a bit. Ms. Kwitney's writing definitely flows and there were many snippets that both entertained and caused me to reflect on them a bit. I'll close this review with one of my favorite throw-away lines: " And then a stranger came and talked to me and made me remember what it was like, to discover the echoes of yourself in someone else's story." In a nutshell, it's an excellent extension of the Sandman mythos.

There are people that do Neil Gaiman's world well (Mike Carey and Jill Thompson are two that come quickly to mind). Alisa Kwitney, a former editor at Vertigo attempts to tell the story of our near-future where the bubonic plague has struck and killed off most of the world's population a la Stephen King's "The Stand." Narrated by Ruth, Kwitney's stand-in, the story wants to be a meditation on what it is like to live simply because one is alive. Into this mix (and to justify the comic) appears a "mysterious stranger" who has a book that contains a stolen page from Destiny's book. How the page was stolen, how it pertains to the plague and the previous plagues through the centuries, plus the random appearances of Destiny of the Endless become the bulk of this bulky sloppy book. There is a story in here SOMEWHERE, but Kwitney seems to confuse her shallows with her depths with characters who are obvious archetypes. We've seen this story before, better written, with more clarity and skill than Kwitney delivers. The fact of her familiarity through her editing work on (or near) the Vertigo books DOESN'T make her writer of greater insight into the Sandman's world, which is really why anyone would pick this book up in the first place. For a read on a character that steps out and stands alone without losing any of the magic of the world of Sandman and the Endless, try "The Furies," which follows the story of Lyta Hall, the distraught former mother and destructor of the Sandman. That story is handled with grace, creating a new and unique story which doesn't attempt to force the history of another writer's book into its own. Ultimately, "Destiny: A Chronicle of Deaths Foretold" acts as a crass attempt to capitalize on the Vertigo character. In a better writer's hands, who knows? But in Kwitney's: you're destined to be disappointed.

I feel like I just had my mind blown.

The book got here, and was pretty much store quality. The last page stuck a little to the cover, and when I tried to separate them the darn page ripped a bit. It's mostly my fault for forcing it though.

The story itself is a bit draggy in spots, and features less of destiny than one would think. But over-all I find anything that comes out of this universe is worth a read/purchase. Totally worth it.

Written by Alisa Kwitney, this book is beautifully painted by, Kent Williams, the cover art and framing sequence artist, Michael Zulli in part one, Scott Hampton in part two and Revecca Guay in part three. This time, Kent renders his works mainly with pencils and watercolor washes.
