An award-winning comic book writer and a best-selling novelist, Neil Gaiman is considered one of the most talented and imaginative modern-day authors. An amazing storyteller who weaves intricate plots into thought-provoking tales, Gaiman is credited with expanding the comic book medium into other literary genres. Providing tantalizing glimpses into the fantastical worlds he would create and nurture, NEIL GAIMAN’S MIDNIGHT DAYS collects some of the accomplished author’s earliest work. Included in these never-before-reprinted and original publications are entertaining tales featuring the Golden Age Sandman, Morpheus, the Swamp Thing, and John Constantine.
