Neil Gaiman's 1994 safe sex PSA starring Death from Sandman and John ConstantineS

In 1994, Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean of Sandman created this HIV awareness PSA comic designed for a high school readership. The comic starred everyone's favorite goth anthropomorphic depiction of Death, an abashed John Constantine, and a banana.

Sadly, this comic didn't spur a series of Vertigo-themed PSAs. I would've liked to have seen the Spider Jerusalem anti-drug, booze, and prolapse-inducing firearm ad. After all, his get-out-the-vote commercial was priceless.
