SAN FRANCISCO — Fantasy author Neil Gaiman made headlines around the world last week when he announced a return to the beloved Sandman series for the comic’s 25th anniversary. It will be the first new Sandman story in a decade, and nobody was more excited by the news than Wired. We caught up with Gaiman the day after the announcement at a gallery in the Mission, where his wife, the powerhouse musician and performance artist Amanda Palmer, was preparing to take the stage for a standing-room-only concert appearance.
In our exclusive video interview, Gaiman explains the back story to his new projects — including the Sandman prequel and five new children’s books — and Palmer riffs on the massive Kickstarter success of her upcoming album Theatre is Evil.
