Sean Von Gorman has done it again.
He has presented us with this imagined view from the past, what if Neil had an origin story like Spiderman.
That New York sensation, he of the Houdini, Pawnshop & ToeTag Riot comics fame-- Sean has created a little Neil Gaiman-- in the style of one of my all-time favorite artists: Charles Addams.
This is a from a Neil interview conducted in Oct 2006. by Jessa Crispin
Q: How did your interest in mythology start?
A: I wish I had an origin story for you. When I was four, I was bitten by a radioactive myth.
I remember the first time I encountered Thor was definitely in comics, which left me interested and excited enough in Roger Lancelyn Green’s Tales of the Norsemen that I read it until it fell apart. Then I went out with my own money and bought Roger Lancelyn Green’s Tales of Egypt. Which I read a lot. I was a seven-year-old kid reading ancient Egyptian mythology for pleasure.
