Spent this morning at the Marge Simpson Studio recording my part as a British Fantasy Writer named "Neil Gaiman" in an upcoming Simpsons Episode called "the Book Job". It's a wonderful script, by Dan Vebber, and I play a character very different from the "Neil Gaiman" I played on Arthur. For instance, I'll probably be yellow, and I definitely won't have cat ears.
I love this one of Mike Dringenberg drawing because of all the mint Sandman #1 and Black Orchid #1s in front of us.
Another Hanley photo (Chris Conroy took 'em): me, looking truculent. Black Orchid poster. Dec 1988 Sandman #1 signing
The signing line. It was about a dozen strong, as I remember. First American signing ever, Dec 1988 for Sandman 1.
Mike Dringenberg and I had huge piles of SANDMAN 1 in front of us. Most were unsigned...
December 1988. Jim Hanley's Universe on Staten Island. Mike Dringenberg & I sign copies of Sandman #1.
Going through some old notebooks. Here's the zeroth draft of a famous scene from The Doctor's Wife...
On the wall of The Golden Notebook in Woodstock, NY. They have copies of Hansel and Gretel there, signed by me.
See All Neil Gaiman
