Review – Neil Gaiman’s “Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire”

It’s always hard for me to pick a favorite Neil Gaiman story, but it’s easy for me to pick a favorite collection: Fragile Things wins, hands down.

Included in that book is “Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire.” As you can guess from that mouthful, it’s a very tongue-in-cheek (ha) story, and when I heard it was being made into a graphic novel from Dark Horse, with art by Shane Oakley and (occasional) colors by Nick Filardi, I really hoped they’d stay true to the spirit (ha again) of the story.

You already know it takes tons of people to produce the comics you love, and not just writers, artists, colorers, letterers, and editors. There’s also marketing folks, financial coordinators, and more. And in every department you can find talented artists who produce art in their own time that isn’t featured in the comics you read. And this month Dark Horse and Sequential Art Gallery + Studio in Portland will make sure some of this art gets seen. See below for the official word from Dark Horse on Work Horse: Art by the People Who Make Your Comics.
