I’m re-reading the early Sandman graphic novels by Neil Gaiman. I find it amazing that one writer can be so talented and prolific in such a variety of genres — graphic novels, full length fantasy novels, youth fiction, and children’s books. Neil Gaiman does it all, and he does it so well.
I suspect it’s because he does so well with the central story telling aspects of all of them. Though I recall reading somewhere that he took a while specifically trying to work out the mechanics of comic book writing, just working on the basics of getting from frame to frame.
