For this Throwback Thursday #TBT , I give you how I met dear friend and prolific author, Neil Gaiman on the set of HELLBOY II: The Golden Army (He’s the one on the right, not in Abe Sapien’s make-up  ) Neil and his princess of a daughter, Maddie, spent roughly 6 weeks with us there in Budapest…. Among my happiest memories from that shoot, and the beginning of a delightful friendship.

Doug is the sweetest man in the world. I’d known him for 3 weeks before I saw him out of Abe Sapiens make up, and it took some getting used to, to discover my friend wasn’t actually a blue creature from the black lagoon…

"My parents would frisk me before family events. Before weddings, funerals, bar mitzvahs, and what have you. Because if they didn’t, then the book would be hidden inside some pocket or other and as soon as whatever it was got under way I’d be found in a corner. That was who I was…that was what I did. I was the kid with the book."

Well. It’s almost Halloween, so I thought I’d take a break from work to make a festive public service announcement from Neil Gaiman.
I don’t have nearly as many fabulous escapades in graveyards as I once did, unfortunately, but this was a fun way to remember those days.

This is glorious!

BEHOLD: DAVE MCKEAN’S FIRST ‘SANDMAN’ COVER IN YEARS AND A NEW ‘OVERTURE’ PAGE BY JH WILLIAMS III

By Andy Khouri

Vertigo’s The Sandman prequel by Neil Gaiman and JH Williams III is DC Comics’ biggest publishing story of the year, so we can expect more and more items like this Entertainment Weekly piece in which one or two tantalizing images are released over a period of months. Normally this would be kind of annoying, but the truth is it is very good news that Gaiman and Williams are revisiting the early Sandman era and telling the story about what the titular lord of dreams was actually up to before his capture at the start of the classic series, and every teased image will be beautiful — especially if they happen to be created byclassic Sandman cover artist Dave McKean.

EW notes that The Sandman: Overture is Gaiman’s first Morpheus story since 1996, which is of course not accurate. The last Gaiman wrote a story featuring the original Sandman of his perennial series was in the 2003 graphic novel The Sandman: Endless Nights — which was also the last time McKean drew paintedillustrated photographed manifested a Sandman cover. McKean’s Overture piece invokes the multimedia collage effect and logo remix treatments of his many, many creations for The Sandman’s 75 issues and numerous compilation volumes, but with a modern sheen that seems to catch the eye and tell the reader to get ready for something weird.

“There is something special about Dave McKean that makes it feel real,” Gaiman told EW. “I get the same thrill I got 25 years ago seeing his covers…”

Also released was JH Williams III’s first page of the first issue, which while revealing little about the story does express the kind of visual approach the artist is taking with this most anticipated story.

I loved this exchange so much, I just spent a stupid amount of time turning it into a mediocre graphic. Neil, you complete me.

I love living in a world where I write something on Tumblr and the following day it’s an excellent graphic. Thank you!
