FAME: Neil Gaiman

2.66 Overall Score
Art: 3/10
Dialogue: 2/10
Story: 3/10

The book is an illustrated story of Gaiman’s life, written by what I assume was an overreaching 8th grader (with good taste in comics), who also happens to be in a Remedial English class.

The book is made to try and grab attention with the name, but it’s really nothing special in a lot of ways.

FAME: Neil Gaiman
Blue Water Comics
2013

What’s the haps, people who probably don’t say things like “what’s the haps?” Welcome back to another “Both Barrels Comic Book Review.” Normally, when I see a new comic, and it has Neil Gaiman’s name on it, I grab it up faster than is safe in a packed comic store on a Wednesday.

Unfortunately, this time, I grabbed Blue Water Comics’ FAME: Neil Gaiman, which is another installment in the lame FAME series, which is just a comic book version of E! True Hollywood Story.

The book is an illustrated story of Gaiman’s life, written by what I assume was an overreaching 8th grader (with good taste in comics), who also happens to be in a Remedial English class.

It looks like it was also drawn by said 8th grader, but was actually written by Anthony Laplume, with art by Marco Gerratana. Most of the facts are pulled straight from Wikipedia, so let’s just assume they’re right, because I’m not planning on looking any of them up.

The book is made to try and grab attention with the name, but it’s really nothing special in a lot of ways. Save yourself the cash, and just Google Gaiman.

    For the record, Wikipedia was not used as a source. And I am not in the eighth grade, but rather ninth (and not remedial anything, because they felt really sorry for me). Otherwise everything else is spot on. Thanks!
