Friday the 13th wasn't so much of a big deal to me, but this day was extremely remarkable—not because a truckload of bad luck was dumped on me, but because I just received one of the best news the literary world could ever announce this month...or year, even.
I was at the office for another ordinary working day when a friend linked a video of this announcement on my Facebook wall. Neil Gaiman, my favorite writer, will be writing more Sandman, and it will be released next year!
(even Pusheen is excited about this!)
I practically went OMG all over the place. In celebration of the graphic novel series' 25th anniversary, Gaiman would be writing the prequel to his 10-volume opus that ended years ago, telling the story of the broody Morpheus before he was imprisoned in the beginning of the original Sandman series.
I just can't thank God enough! I know this may sound, say, exaggerated to some people who may be reading this, but Gaiman's works mean so much to me. Nobody knows how much, really. I won't go cheeseballs here and enumerate why Gaiman is my primary inspiration, but I'm just...extremely excited.
Apocalypse can wait until after 2013, and what I just said above is the number one reason.
