Neil Gaiman on Watchmen

Back in the days before Neil Gaiman was a renowned author, even before his work on the acclaimed Sandman graphic novels, he was a newspaper journalist writing book reviews. Here's an old newspaper clipping from the now long-defunct daily tabloid Today, dated Sunday July 27th 1986, where a 25 year old Neil Gaiman promotes a then-new comic called Watchmen.

It's a good little article, with quotes from Alan Moore, and an accurate impression of the mid-1980s comics scene. That same year Neil would sell his first comic strips to 2000AD. The rest, as they say, is history.


I'm currently selling a complete set of the first printing of the WATCHMEN limited series from 1986. Click HERE to see the item on eBay!

I was interested to see how your eBay auction went, as I have a set of originals as well. Time to flog 'em and buy the Absolute Edition, I think!

Yep. I bought the Absolute edition for £40. Well worth it.
