With the 20th anniversary of Sandman right around the corner, Neil Gaiman talks about a new poster — and shares some art — being created to commemorate the occasion:
Mark Buckingham and Shelly Bond and I have been plotting and planning over the last month. We’ve been planning a Sandman 20th Anniversary poster, with as many of the pencillers and inkers who drew Sandman as possible coming back to draw a character or two. We pondered a couple of different ways of doing it, decided that a party would best, and Mark laid out a party and where everyone would be…
Most of the forty-something artists on Sandman who are still alive and drawing said yes — a handful were simply too busy (alas, no Matt Wagner or Michael Zulli) and there are a couple that we’re hunting for.
But the first piece of art came in. It’s from Sam Kieth, and is the first time he’s drawn Morpheus professionally in, well, twenty years.
