Ovre på Wild River Review har de et rimeligt langt interview med Neil Gaiman. Der kommer ikke så meget nyt på bordet, men han snakker en del om tegneserier og hvordan det var at begynde i branchen for 20 år siden.
for me, at least, one of the joys of comics has always been the knowledge that it was, in many ways, untouched ground. It was virgin territory. When I was working on Sandman, I felt a lot of the time that I was actually picking up a machete and heading out into the jungle. I got to write in places and do things that nobody had ever done before.
Han kommer også ind på mytologien i tegneserier og tanken om tegneserier som den moderne myte:
Superman and Batman have to be a very specific kind of evolution of myth. A friend of mine pointed out to me recently that if you combine DC Comics and Marvel Comics, or even look at them individually — they are probably seeing that all of their stories are theoretically within a coherent universe. You’re looking at the largest story ever told.
Alt i alt spændende læsning hvis man er fan af Gaiman – også selv om man ikke er så hardcore en fan, at man må eje denne serie af Neil Gaiman-inspirerede dufte.
