Neil Gaiman talks about a video game he created called ‘Wayward Manor’

Wayward Manor is a puzzle/adventure game hybrid that invites players to solve the mysteries of the mansion any way they choose. You play as a disgruntled ghost, trying to reclaim your house from its newfound owners. This dysfunctional family of misfits and eccentrics have stifled your power and brought their own abysmal possessions into your humble abode. Each level is a playground for scares where players absorb fear to take back control of the room. If you want free reign over your mansion once again, you must uncover their deepest anxieties and drive them mad with fear using your wits and their hideous belongings. Coming Fall 2013 for PC, Mac, and tablets!

How Dave McKean created those gorgeous Sandman covers before Photoshop

These days, you never really question how a comic book cover or book cover is made, because even if there are a variety of tools in use, they’re all going to be digital.

Neil Gaiman’s Doctor Who episodes will have Cybermen and Warwick Davis

Even though Cybermen have been used a hell of a lot in the last several seasons of Doctor Who, I’m always up for a Neil Gaiman penned episode of Who any day. So if it has Cybermen, whatever. But it will also have actor Warwick Davis… you know, that little fellow from Willow.

Concept art for the 1990s Sandman movie that never was

Neil Gaiman’s Sandman is one of the most popular comic book series of the past 30 years, you would think that it would have been snatched up by Hollywood execs and spun off into an unrecognizable blockbuster franchise by this point. As it turns out, Gaiman actually met with Warner Bros. to pitch a film adaptation of his work back in early ’90s, but they just didn’t seem to get the sprawling narrative — in spite of some really lovely visual aids that had created by Jill Thompson.

Neil Gaiman writes a one-page comic for some lucky guy to get tattooed on his back
Burton Olivier, a fan of novelist and comic book writer Neil Gaiman, wanted a special tattoo to cover his back, so he reached out to Gaiman to create one for him. Gaiman agreed, if Olivier would make a contribution to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Gaiman hired comic book artist David Mack to make the visual design, then composed the following poem:

I will write in words of fire. I will write them on your skin. I will write about desire. Write beginnings, write of sin. You’re the book I love the best, your skin only holds my truth, you will be a palimpsest lines of age rewriting youth. You will not burn upon the pyre. Or be buried on the shelf. You’re my letter to desire: And you’ll never read yourself. I will trace each word and comma As the final dusk descends, You’re my tale of dreams and drama, Let us find out how it ends.
