Sandman Zero Has A New Title As Of Yesterday

neil  We know that Sandman Zero was pitched years ago but DC and Neil Gaiman couldn’t agree terms. Then, last year, Bleeding Cool broke the news that terms had been agreed, and DC announced the series by Gaiman and JH Williams III.

Last night, in conversation with Chip Kidd, Gaiman told a crowd that as of the day before, Sandman Zero now has a new title. Though he wouldn’t hint as to what it was, despite considerable prodding.

Scott Wegrzyn told Bleeding Cool that Gaiman delivered;

lots of good stories, including a Shatner impersonation which was great. They met once in Buenos Aires at a con and Shatner was under the impression he was going to meet Neil Diamond; had no idea who Neil Gaiman was.

Chip Kidd was fabulous as moderator – and he also does a mean Dan DiDidio impersonation as well. Gaiman said that Harper Collins had issues with Chip Kidd not using the actual book title on the front cover. He compared that to DC giving him a hard time for not having Morpheus on the covers of early Sandman issues, a conflict that came back even harder when they moved the book’s title around for A Game Of You Covers.

They asked the audience to submit questions on index cards and collected them during the intermission. After intermission they only answered three(?) questions…including mine (partially).

chipNeil would like the next Doctor to be played by….Chip Kidd (who was totally dressed for the part tonight). They had some fun with that, and the crowd was into it…but no serious answers.

Oh, and apparently Neil loved a play on Broadway called Roadkill, and really, really wants to write a play.
