Editorial Reviews

You can’t just talk about one of the most ambitious contemporary comic-book series without calling in the big guns. Thankfully, the 92nd Street Y goes right to the source, bringing together Sandman’s author, Neil Gaiman, and leading graphic designer and editor Chip Kidd. Listen along with delight to this hyper-engaging and wildly riveting discussion as two consummate professionals poke and prod each other about their respective craft and examine the behind-the-scenes action that led to the creation of Gaiman’s most original and creative comic-book to date.

The skinny on Sandman

Neil Gaiman is Mr Cool. Love any talk he gives because he blends humor, literary history, anecdote and insight.

In this talk he speaks with Chip Kidd on the anniversary of Sandman. Talk of origins, influences and storyline. There is even time for a William Shatner impression.

Enjoyable & insightful. For anyone who likes to know a bit more about how the magic works behind the scenes. The Sandman and the people who made it happen.
