I'm really looking forward to this, especially when he teams up with the plucky police detective with a chip on her shoulder.

I wish I could funny this. But it's all too likely.

I really wanted this to be animated.  Hopefully they'll be given a budget sufficient to achieve the look.

Meh, everything of Gaimans that's been adapted has kinda fizzled. American gods, good omens, just fell down after some solid up episodes and some great acting. Coraline is the only one that worked well, and it's based on a wisp of a story.  He needs to just stay out of the production process IMO.

American Gods would have been great if they committed to a one or two season telling of the story. All the pieces were there. Great cast and solid production. The plot just had no momentum for long stretches, plus the behind-the-scenes turnover didn't help.

I came, pissed myself, crapped my pants, and bled out of my ears all at my he same time.

Lucifer started stupid but is pretty cool now. Good Omens was great, though it did lean on Terry Pratchett's writing because, let's face it. He was always was a better yarn spinner than Gaiman.

American Gods seems to be dragging
So they get more seasons. I'm fine with that.

I'd like a mini series of Yoshiataka Amano's Dream Hunters. It's a long shot.

I think Good Omens was adapted brilliantly. I hope this series will be too.

Coraline and Joy Luck Club are two of those very rare movies which are better than the books.

I forgot about Coraline. The first release DVD had a 3D side and included cardboard glasses. My nieces and nephews jumped and gasped at all the right places. I wish I still had video. My idiot self lost the phone and there wasn't  a cloud at the time.

Another great thing is Mirrormask. It's supposed to be a spiritual successor to Labyrinth. Written by Gaiman and directed by Dave McKean. Stars Rob Brydon who's also great in Steve Coogan movies like Tristram Shandy.

When I was watching the series, Killjoys, there was this woman with a cannon arm. I thought, she looks familiar. She was the young girl in Mirrormask.

Most of Gaiman's stuff just fizzles out on its own. I am not saying he has the same story ending problems that Stephen King did for a while, but Gaiman's story endings ended with a wet thud. His early set of Neverwhere, Stardust and American Gods all had great things except endings.

His short stories are great. I love his Sherlock Holmes - Elder Gods crossover and I really loved his take on Snow White.

I loved Mirrormask. Hit all the right weirdness buttons and still had a cool story.

and apparently I need to watch Killjoys again.

Does Gaiman have a thing against CGI? I know that Coraline was done with stop-motion animation, and everything else adapted from his works that I know of has been live action.

If The Ocean at the End of the Lane were ever adapted, I think it should be done as CGI, for one reason: it'd be feasible to put the "camera" where the eyes of the protagonist are, so we see what he sees and nothing else. We never see him, either as an adult or in his memories of being seven. The whole thing would be his PoV. The "camera" would be at about 5½′ elevation in the prologue and epilogue which are in the present, and at about 3⅔′ in the main part as seen through his seven-year-old eyes.

3D audio through his ears, with his thoughts but nothing else being centered "inside" the head (when using headphones or earbuds) like the center-panned stuff in regular stereo usually is. What he speaks would be louder and closer than anything else, but from just in front of and below the eye level with feedback from right by the microphones / eardrums, like hearing one's own voice with Eustachian tube feedback.

Gaiman deliberately never tells us the protagonist's name (similar to the young protagonist of The Polar Express, come to think of it) because he wants us to identify with him more than if he had a name and described appearance.

The comics are on Hoopla.  Free with any library card.  It's a streaming service, but on a phone or tablet you can also access a really great selection of graphic novels, along with
books and audiobooks.

True, but I have the comics. I read them when they came out. (I'm old.)

Neverwhere had a great cast who did the characters justice. It also had 1990s BBC production quality. I wouldn't mind a remake.

I don't understand this myself. Two months ago, I wanted to get some Sandman graphic novels as gifts. I went to three comic book shops and they didn't have them in stock telling me they need to be special ordered. Is this a distribution thing?

Fortunately, I found what I was looking for digging at used bookstores.

Yes, comic shops are there to distribute comics published every week; they're not really for long-term stocking of 30year-old books.

The trade paperbacks (Preludes and Nocturnes, A Doll's House, Season of Mists, etcetera) should all be in regular bookstores or even Amazon.  (When I bought The Wake, it was like $2 more than the previous volumes, which seemed weird to me, but whatever.)

(watches behind the scenes video)

OK, the sets look good, and the people playing Morpheus and Lucifer seem like they can probably do decent jobs.  Please don't fark this up, Netflix.

Well,if they couldn't get Sting (or if he's aged too much), yeah, a good choice for Lucifer. But Gaiman straight-up told the artist to draw Lucifer to look like Sting.

The 1990s were long enough ago that Sting is probably too old to look the part.  But I either never knew that or it got overwritten by something else.

Graphic novels like Sandman, Lenore, and Strangers in Paradise bring women into the comic book shop. This attracts male comic book nerds. Are many leering and weird around women in comic book shops? Yes. Not any weirder than comic book shop owners. Female comic book fans, if you feel uncomfortable, there are lots of people who'll hold a guy down while you punch them.

Bowie. (Who definitely isn't available)

Not Sting. Otherwise you are correct, Gaiman was very specific about Lucifer looking like David Bowie. I would bet he approves of the current casting too though.

Yup. John Constantine was modeled after Sting.
