Neil Gaiman is inarguably one of the most influential names in comics today. His work on Sandman for Vertigo, along with his hit novel American Gods, has catapulted him into the forefront of the public consciousness. The story behind the award winning author is the subject of a new documentary from Sequart, due out on July 8th.
Gaiman’s work and career will be chronicled through a series of interviews with the author himself, as well as testimonials from writers and artists with whom he has collaborated over his long and illustrious career.
Sequart has made the trailer available in advance of the film’s release, and you can check it out below.
The film is available for pre-order here.
