The Rarest Of Neil Gaiman Rarities, On Humble Bundle, For CBLDF


Neil Gaiman has written a lot. A lot. And plenty of it before he was famous, scattered to the far winds. And then plenty for boutique publishers who then disappeared. And occasionally extras, additional bits and asides that have evaded even his most obsessive fans.

Now Humble Bundle is to make some of his rarest and most sought after works available digitally for the first time ever.

You know the drill. Pay what you think it's worth, even if it's nothing, pay more and get extras, and benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, The Moth Education Program and the Gaiman Foundation.

Name your price for:

  • Adventures in the Dream Trade (essays, poems, lyrics, and original AMERICAN GODS blog)
  • Gods & Tulips (controversial 1993 speech, an essay on running signings, and a speech on comics)
  • Free Speeches (speeches by Neil, Frank Miller, and others)
  • Being An Account of the Life and Death of the Emperor Heliogabolous (24 hour comic, written & drawn by Neil Gaiman)
  • Angels & Visitations (first collection of prose fiction, nonfiction, and poetry).

May more than the average donation and get:

  • Ghastly Beyond Belief (Neil's rare & never republished second book of oddball quotes)
  • Day of the Dead (fully annotated Babylon 5 script)
  • An Honest Answer & Other Stories (collaboration with Bryan Talbot and Dave McKean)
  • Feeders & Eaters & Other Stories (collaborations with Mark Buckingham, including a comic about Alan Moore)
  • Sweeney Todd & Other Stories (Neil's lost, unfinished, never republished graphic novel with Michael Zulli)
  • Neil Dreams (short comics of dreams, by and about Neil done by & with Rick Veitch)
  • Outrageous Tales From The Old Testament, and Seven Deadly Sins, which also feature contributions from Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Dave McKean, Bryan Talbot and more!

Beat the average price by $15 or more and get

  • Duran Duran (never before republished, rare debut book)
  • Manuscript Found In A Milk Bottle (never before reprinted short story with brand new intro)
  • Love, Fishie (poems by Neil & Maddy Gaiman, limited edition of 100)
  • A Little Gold Book of Ghastly Stuff (out of print and collectible book of short fiction, essays, and poems — many never before reprinted).

More Gaiman rarieties will be added on September 16.

As with all Humble Bundles, customers can choose how their purchase dollars are allocated, between the publisher and charity. Humble Comics Bundle: Neil Gaiman Rarities supports the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and The Moth Education Program. All of Neil Gaiman's personal proceeds from this bundle will benefit The Gaiman Foundation, a private foundation that funds free speech, education, and civil rights charities.
