I like to have a peek at Neil Gaiman’s blog every few days, and I’m delighted to see that he is coming to Scotland in October for a signing. Hopefully I’ll get along to it because I went along to what I believe was his last visit to God’s Country around a decade or so ago, and I got him to sign Sandman #1 and the hardback of Mr Punch. When he saw the Sandman issue he put down his normal pen and pulled out a special gold marker, doing a quick embellishment of the cover.
Anyway, I don’t need to go into how seminal Sandman is, I just wanted to let you see this cracking new poster that is being released to celebrate the book’s 20th anniversary. It’s a jam session featuring art from Sandman luminaries like Jill Thompson, Tony Harris, Steve Leialoha, Mike Allred, Bryan Talbot and more than 25 other great folks. It’s pretty spiffing.
