Okay, it’s not a comic. But it is a lavishly illustrated and pleasingly offbeat childrens’ book by the great comics and prose writer Neil Gaiman (his latest longer work is THE GRAVEYARD BOOK) and the best-selling picture book artist Adam Rex (FRANKENSTEIN MAKES A SANDWICH). Last spring at MoCCA Fest, the Children’s Literature panel spent […]

In a post on her artistic techniques, Colleen Doran reveals that she’s working on a graphic novel with Neil Gaiman, to be published by Dark Horse. The two previously collaborated on issues of THE SANDMAN.
It’s the 25th anniversary of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. Could DC let this go by without new material? No. And not only did they get Gaiman to agree to do a new tale, they got a real artist’s artist to illustrate it in the form of J.H. Williams III. Technically, this sounds like it will be a prequel, if not a prologue, to the original series. It should end just as the original issue #1 is about to begin.
Although when a final settlement was reached in the epic Gaiman/McFarlane legal battle a few weeks ago, most people thought it was all over. But now there is The Accounting. Daniel Best dug up the settlement papers which mentioned just how much money Todd McFarlane might owe Neil Gaiman. Just to be clearer about this, the money in question is in an escrow account and there is really no discussion over its exact disposition. As noted it would go to legal fees, or Neil Gaiman or other things. In addition, the profits from the characters Gaiman co-created—the actual subject of the lawsuit—have yet to be audited.
If you follow our Twitter feed – and who doesn’t! – you know we’re been having lots of computer problems. We’ll share our exciting process when it’s finished, and hopefully successful (for the moment we have to use our travel backup) but it’s already taken up the whole weekend, which, what with FMB being out of town for a (from what we hear) very successful signing at Black Cat Comics in Salt Lake City, we slaved away all weekend with a steady background of whatever happened to be on the TV, giving us a chance to rewind with a fine selection of films from our nerd heritage collection and a few new gems as well.
A Minnesota budget battle has expanded into an attack on Neil Gaiman, as one fiscally-minded politician called the Newbery Award winning writer, whom he “hates,” a “pencil-necked little weasel who stole $45,000 from the state of Minnesota.”
Back in the Summer of 1994, I was visiting my relatives in Germany. I had heard of the Erlangen Comics Salon, a comics festival being held in the Bavarian city of Erlangen. So I rented a room in a student apartment building and spent the weekend at what was my first comics convention. Fortunately for me, […]
Celebrated literary figure Neil Gaiman turns 50 years old today, surely the man who did as much to make comics part of the mainstream as anyone who ever lived. He marks the occasion on his blog, of course:
Vulture has one of the chattiest interviews with Neil Gaiman we’ve read in a while. HE talks about co-editing BEST AMERICAN COMICS and much more:
The CBLDF board is having a meeting today. And Neil Gaiman has been doodling.
Not to worry …the doodles have been donated to the CBLDF to be auctioned off. A productive meeting indeed.
He’s been a goth, comics and literary idol for decades…but now Neil Gaiman is turning into am anthro. Wired reports that the best-selling author willguest star on Arthur, the long-running (13 seasons) cartoon about a little aardvark and his world.
