So with Thanos' Death now be younger and Spidey's Sandman look like Edward Scissorhands?

The answer is... nothing.

This is Gaiman's M.O. in comics now. He pops up every few years, does a mini-series, or an issue of something or other, then goes back and takes a leisurely swim in his pool of cash from his real job as a novelist.

Chris is right, the only thing new is now he doesn't sign books because he's too good for that kind of thing. :roll:

Bet he'd never admit to jerking off 20 times in a day or peeing in a jar because he's too lazy to go to the bathroom.

I'll bet his girlfriend would though, and call it performance art.

Well, good. That'll make my signed copy of Sandman #8 more valuable. :P

Yah. That was terrible. But then again, I think the Eternals are pretty crappy all around.

Yes, Eternals was bad, and so was 1602. Everything he has done for the last decade has more pretentious than interesting.

1602 was okay.

Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader was okay too.

The only thing I've ever liked by Neil Gaiman is Sandman. I like some of of his short stories too but I'm not a big fan of his novels at all.

As I've said somewhat jokingly in my articles about him (because I do like his novels), he is the favorite novelist of people who don't read novels. :P
