Over twenty years as a professional writer, Neil Gaiman has been one of the top writers in modern comics, and is now a best-selling novelist, whose most recent novel for adults, American Gods, was awarded the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, SFX and Locus awards, while his children’s novel Coraline, has been, like American Gods, an international bestseller and an enormous critical success.
2003 sees the publication of several works by Gaiman: a new children’s picture book, The Wolves in the Walls, illustrated by his longtime collaborator Dave McKean; a serialised story for Marvel called 1602; and the first Sandman graphic novel in seven years, Endless Nights.
2004 will see the release of MIRROR MASK, a film written by Neil Gaiman and directed by Dave McKean for the Jim Henson company and Columbia Tristar.
He was the creator/writer of monthly cult DC Comics horror-weird series, Sandman, which won Neil the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards for best writer (1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994), best continuing series (1991, 1992 and 1993), best graphic album-- reprint (1991), and the Best Graphic Album - New (1993); the Harvey Award for best writer (1990, 1991) and best continuing series (1992); and Sandman #19 took the 1991 World Fantasy Award for best short story (making it the first comic ever to be awarded a literary award).
