Time.com's Lev Grossman interviews Neil Gaiman and Joss Wedon. They both have movies in the offing, thus the reason for the interview. A casual view into two writers in popular media and what they go through. There was a time when both these gentlemen's fare was fringe, you dared not reveal to your friends that you read fantasy or sci fi--unless you knew they were into it. Neil makes a note about how people will insist that he does "Graphic Novels" just to keep away from the icky monicker, "Comic Books." I got Neil Gaiman's blog on an aggregator (the man works constantly) and I might be checking out Serenity, because of the creepy mystery girl, River (Summer Glau). Check out this link for some viral marketing clips, Dr. Tam sessions.
Best quote from the interview is last one from Neil.
Last time I was at Comicom, there were like 5,000 people there, and the audience was going to try and cut me off with stuff to sign. They had to figure out how to get me off the stage. All of a sudden, I'm getting to the end of the conversation. Dave McKean and I were doing a Mirrormask thing and we're ready to leave the stage. I look up and they have a bodyguard line of 30 Klingons. They're six-foot six and four-feet wide and they have the foreheads and they had linked arms. We were being lead off behind a human wall —a Klingon wall—of Klingon warriors. And I thought, how good does it get?
