Vertigo to publish sequel to <i>The Little Endless Storybook</i>

DC's Vertigo imprint announced on their blog today that Jill Thompson will write and paint a sequel to The Little Endless Storybook.

Delirium's Party: A Little Endless Storybook, reunites all the Endless siblings "in an effort to break Despair of her unhappiness."

“I’m so pleased to be able to play in the Sandman playground again," Thompson told Graphic Content's Pamela Mullin. "I love the Endless and I really enjoy being able to tell quirky and cute stories with them in their ‘Little Endless’ form! They are such a fan favorite that I always want to create something that lives up to everyone’s expectations, mine included-because first and foremost, I am a fan of these characters! I think Delirium’s Party will be a nice follow up to the first Little Endless storybook! Despair is the best ’straight man’ for comedy ever! Well, after Neil and Sandman, of course…!”

The original book was published back in 2001 as a prestige-sized one-shot, and was later repackaged as a hardcover. The plot involved Barnabas, Destruction's dog, trying to find a lost Delirium.

The sequel is due out next year.
