Sandman Writer Neil Gaiman Taking 6 Month Break On His Social-Media Accounts To Concentrate On Writing

SDCC_2013_Neil_Gaiman

Author Neil Gaiman will temporarily bid adieu to his millions of followers on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and Google+ as he takes a break from social media to focus on his upcoming projects.

“I’ll be taking about six months off,” Gaiman told The Guardian, “a sabbatical from social media so I can concentrate on my day job: making things up.” The break starts this month.

In 2013 alone, Gaiman released two best-selling books: “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” (named the National Book Award’s 2013 book of the year), and “Fortunately, the Milk.”

He also published a prequel comic “The Sandman: Overture,” not to mention guest writing episodes for the hit sci-fi TV show “Doctor Who” and his frequent book readings and tours.

It will be interesting to see how much more the prolific writer can accomplish when he’s not regularly tweeting.

“I feel that I’m getting too dependent on phones, on Twitter,” he told The Guardian. “It’s a symbiotic relationship. That instant ability to find things out, to share. I want to see what happens when I take some time off.”

Fans worried they’ll get the shakes from Gaiman withdrawals shouldn’t fret yet. While Gaiman will be absent from his official social-media channels, he still promises to keep everyone updated on his life occasionally through his personal blog at NeilGaiman.com.

“If you are used to hanging out with me on Tumblr or Twitter or Facebook, you are very welcome here,” Gaiman wrote on his blog. “Same me, only with more than 140 characters. It’ll be fun. Or it’ll be like watching someone giving up smoking.”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt May Direct & Star In Sandman Film

jgl-sandman

According to Deadline, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is finalizing a deal to produce Sandman at Warner Bros with David Goyer, who pitched his treatment for the Neil Gaiman comic book classic. 

It has been rumored that Gordon-Levitt might direct and star as the protagonist. They will hire a writer shortly.

The Sandman series shifts between horror and fantasy, and the central character is Morpheus, the personification of dreams. After being held captive 70 years, Morpheus escapes, gains revenge and rebuilds his crumbling kingdom while trying to adapt to the times.

Gordon-Levitt next stars in another seminal graphic novel-based film, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which Robert Rodriguez and creator Frank Miller helmed.

Twenty-five years after Neil Gaiman broke through with his classic series ‘The Sandman,’ DC’s Vertigo imprint is bringing it back in a limited run this fall.

“Well, one pretty obvious question that nobody actually asked when the comic book came out was basically why was the Sandman so easy to catch,” Gaiman says of deciding to go back to the beginning of the story now.

Click HERE to read the full Q&A at Rolling Stone. The Sandman: Overture # 1 arrives on Wednesday October 30, 2013.

Miracleman Returns: Marvel To Publish Ground-Breaking Original Series & New Stories By Neil Gaiman

Long out of print, Marvel Comics is pleased to announce that the stories that injected new levels of sophistication into the super hero genre will finally see the light of day once again! Starting this January, Marvel will begin publishing the legendary run of Miracleman by the original creators that began in Warrior Magazine and continued under now defunct publisher Eclipse Comics!

Fans lucky enough to have read these trailblazing stories when they were originally produced have often referred to this legendary run on Miracleman as “the lost Watchmen,” and Marvel is proud to finally bring these incredible comics to an audience that has clamored for them.

“We’ve been working with the Miracleman artists to obtain original artwork or photostats in every instance possible, and then applying the same painstaking restoration methods and rigorous quality standards that are utilized on the Marvel Masterworks line. The Marvel Special Projects team have even been developing some new techniques specifically for this project. These Miracleman issues will receive the most advanced restoration possible to ensure the most authentic reading experience,” says SVP of Marvel Publishing David Gabriel. “The art is crisp, clear, and looks as good – if not better than the day it was published! Also, the stories are being completely relettered to meet today’s standards.”

Making these stories available to an entirely new generation is one thing – but following the original groundbreaking run, the epic more than 30 years in the making will reach it’s cataclysmic conclusion! You heard correctly – Marvel will also be publishing all-new Miracleman stories from legendary creators Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham! Long left unfinished, Gaiman and Buckingham’s famous storyline will ultimately see the light of day!

“The tragedy of Miracleman was that we published two issues, wrote three and a half – and then it all stopped,” Gaiman said, in an interview with Marvel.com. “And Miracleman #25 has been sitting in the darkness – nobody has seen it. It was drawn, it was written, it was lettered over 20 years ago.”

Re-presented in serialized form, each issue of Miracleman features additional content including new art, interviews with the creators as well as new covers from some of the industry’s most legendary artists! Look for Miracleman #1 in print and digital this January!

Neil Gaiman Announces His First Video Game, Wayward Manor

about

Critically-acclaimed, best-selling author Neil Gaiman (“The Ocean at the End of the Lane,” “The Sandman” series of graphic novels, “American Gods,” “The Graveyard Book” and “Coraline”) today announced the launch of his first-ever video game, Wayward Manor. Set in a 1920s Victorian Gothic pastoral estate, Wayward Manor players unravel the mystery of a ghost (player) seeking a peaceful after-life. After a remarkable cast of characters moves into Wayward Manor and wakes him from his post-mortem slumbers, the ghost must find ever-more inventive and brilliant ways to scare them away. As the ghost learns more about the living characters, he also learns more about his own death and after-life, and the danger they are all facing. Wayward Manor will be available just in time for the holidays on PC, Mac, and tablets.

“For quite a while there’s been a story that I’ve wanted to tell, something inspired by the kinds of films that I loved when I was a kid,” said Gaiman. “But I kept running into the same problem: it didn’t really feel like a novel. It felt like something that you would have to experience yourself. So today, I’m proud to announce my first-ever game, Wayward Manor.”

Wayward Manor is being developed by The Odd Gentleman (The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom), an award-winning independent video game studio, in conjunction with Moonshark, a game publisher co-founded by Creative Artists Agency (CAA). The release is supported by a unique, exclusive presale campaign, offering rewards for fans including limited-edition merchandise, the opportunity to name a game character, and even a private dinner with Gaiman, among others. Presale orders are now being accepted at www.WhoHauntsNeil.com.

The same day Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean At the End of the Lane hit No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list the author’s book tour made a stop at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, Ca., where he was joined onstage by Entertainment Weekly’s Geoff Boucher for a lively 80-minute conversation about the spooky art of writing.

Gaiman did a reading from the slender new release and (in a surprise) also from Fortunately, the Milk, an endearingly daft children’s book due in September.

The event, put on by Live Talks LA, is presented in its entirety below and reveals the unexpected path of The Ocean at the End of the Lane and the reason its protagonist resembles the author far more than the central characters in his best-known works, which include Coraline, The Graveyard Book, Stardust, Neverwhere, American Gods and The Sandman series for Vertigo and DC Comics.

DC Entertainment’s Vertigo Reveals Details Surrounding Neil Gaiman’s Highly Anticipated Return to The Sandman

DC Entertainment’s Vertigo Reveals Details Surrounding Neil Gaiman’s Highly Anticipated Return to The Sandman

This October, author Neil Gaiman returns to the realm of the Endless for an eagerly anticipated tale that will bring readers back to one of the most critically-acclaimed comic book series ever. The Sandman: Overture will unite Gaiman with visionary artist J.H. Williams III and reveal a previously untold story in The Sandman mythos. The announcement was made today by Shelly Bond, Executive Editor of Vertigo, an imprint of DC Entertainment.

“We’re honored to have Neil back for a story only he and J.H. can tell. It’s a testament to the lasting power of Vertigo, Sandman and Neil’s amazing creativity.”

One of the most popular, groundbreaking, bestselling and award-winning comic books of the last twenty-five years, Gaiman’s The Sandman stands tall as one of the few graphic novel series ever to be on the The New York Times Best Seller list and lauded by critics the world over for its transformative storytelling in the comic book industry.

On October 30th, Gaiman returns to his beloved universe for the first time in more than 10 years since ending the series. The story will explore Morpheus’ world before he was captured, which is bound to captivate the hearts and imaginations of the most loyal fans and new readers alike. Brought to life by renowned artist J.H. Williams III (Batwoman, Promethea), The Sandman: Overture #1 will be an oversized issue and will showcase his talent with a spectacular interior gatefold.

“This is the one story that we never got to tell,” Gaiman told The New York Times today. “In Sandman #1 Morpheus is captured somehow. Later on in the series, you learn he was returning from somewhere far, far away – but we never got to the story of what he was doing and what had happened. This is our chance to tell that story, and J.H. Williams III is drawing it. It’s the most beautiful thing in the world.”

“Neil Gaiman returning to the lush, evocative world he created with Sandman is a literary event,” said Diane Nelson, DC Entertainment President. “We’re honored to have Neil back for a story only he and J.H. can tell. It’s a testament to the lasting power of Vertigo, Sandman and Neil’s amazing creativity. “

The Sandman: Overture will be published bi-monthly with issue #1 arriving on October 30th, 2013. Each issue of The Sandman: Overture will feature stunning covers by Williams and original series cover artist Dave McKean and will be published on the same day digitally.

Also bi-monthly and alternating with the main Overture series, Vertigo will publish The Sandman: Overture Special Edition. These deluxe issues will include original scripts by Gaiman, additional concept art and sketches by Williams, Q&As with the creative team and more, starting in November.

The Sandman Omnibus Vol. 1 To Be Released On August 21, 2013

The Sandman is the universally lauded masterwork following Morpheus, Lord of the Dreaming—a vast hallucinatory landscape housing all the dreams of any and everyone who’s ever existed. Regardless of cultures or historical eras, all dreamers visit Morpheus’ realm—be they gods, demons, muses, mythical creatures, or simply humans who teach Morpheus some surprising lessons.

Upon his escape from an embarrassing captivity at the hands of a mere mortal, Morpheus finds himself at a crossroads, forced to deal with the enormous changes within both himself and his realm. His journey to find his place in a world that’s drastically changed takes him through mythical worlds to retrieve his old heirlooms, the back roads of America for a twisted reunion, and even Hell itself—to receive the dubious honor of picking the next Devil. But he’ll learn his greatest lessons at the hands of his own family, the Endless, who—like him—are walking embodiments of the most influential aspects of existence.

This massive hardcover book published by DC Comics is over 1000 pages and collects the first 37 issues of Neil Gaiman’s groundbreaking series plus Sandman Special # 1!

The Sandman Omnibus Vol. 1 ($150) will be published on August 21, 2013.
