I didn’t see this one coming. I suppose that isn’t surprising, since I cannot see much through the womb of caffeine and masturbating that I exist within. Neil Gaiman is returning to Marvel, and the good man is bringing Angela with him. Yes, that Angela. The one he co-created with Todd McExpensiveBaseBalls way back in the day.
Neil Gaiman is stepping up into the fray. The good sir has donated a lovely amount of funds through his foundation to Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
Listen, this ain’t Before Watchmen. This is a creator diving back into a world he created. At least that’s the delineation I see.
[Note: William Gibson and Neil Gaiman will not be attending. See comments for more info.]
I enjoy steampunk whenever I pass by it in my cultural travels. Not enough to dress in its elegant swag, nor to delve deeply into the literature. Enough to appreciate it. Even at this novice level however, I’m beyond bonerized for the steampunk festival coming to my home state.
Remember when Toddy McFarlane said to Robert Kirkman, “they only sue when there’s money” and we all had a good laugh at his reductionist tendencies? Oh, good times. ‘Cause it really doesn’t mean there can’t be money and just cause or whatever. Such was the case in the Gaiman vs McFarlane court battle, where Gaiman ended up winning. A considerable amount of money, that he is going to donate to charity.
[Caff note: This originally started as an "Awesome Comments" post a few days ago, but Neil himself commented to clarify so I've since updated it.]
Did you have any idea that Neil Gaiman was a Scientologist? Or might be one? I had no idea either. Then a Truth Bomber by the name of John Constantaine drudged up a post from last June and went to down with his knives of illumination.
Hit the jump for the entire spiel.
Neil Gaiman is lending his voice to an animated Bluntman and Chronic project that I had absolutely no idea existed. Jay Mewes accosted the writer and overall Dork Legend, and the dude? He said yes.
The whispered-about, rumored-about HBO adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is officially a fucking go. Tom Hanks and his totally mint production team are planning a six-season adaptation.
If you haven’t read Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, you need to get the fuck on it. If you have read it, and you’ve made your peace with our insatiable urge to adapt everything, this may be good news. If the novel is going to get adapted, there’s much worse ways than with HBO helming a television version.
