hi neil! i've loved your work for a very long time, and while mucking around on long dead hellblazer forums, i came across a comment that said you claimed to have met death on a flight. i googled this claim and couldn't find anything about it, so i've come to ask you if it's true. and if it is, have you met any of your other creations?
No, it wasn’t me. Here’s what they were thinking about – from http://ew.com/article/2011/07/26/neil-gaiman-grant-morrison-talk/
NG: One of [the stories] was the point where I realized how absolutely sane, in the sense of “lives in the real world,” Dave McKean is.
GM: Oh, God, yes. Thank God.
NG: You wouldn’t think to look at Dave’s imagery. He was going to the San Diego Comic-Con and he got there late. He was coming over from the UK and his plane came in incredibly late. I asked what happened and a guy had died on the plane, and they had to land and get him taken away to a hospital. It was this whole big thing, a guy in the middle of a transatlantic flight just died. “But I could tell I was coming to Comic-Con,” Dave said, “because there was one of your fans on the plane.” I said, “Oh?” And he said, “Yeah, she was dressed as Death.” And I thought, you know, if it were me, I would have wondered, just for a moment, “What are we saying here?” Dave, of course, has that gloriously rational mind that never does that, whereas you and I are both slightly mad.
