Gahan Wilson news: Neil Gaiman team-up; docu & talk
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videoNeil GaimanGahan Wilsonevents 14 Apr 2009 11:48 AM

Before we get to the announcement below (which explains the video above), we have some related information of our own to tout: Neil Gaiman will be providing one of two introductions to Gahan Wilson: 50 Years of Playboy Cartoons, our mammoth three-volume slipcased set coming this fall. (The other introduction: Hugh Hefner. Stay tuned for more info about this release in tomorrow's "Fall 09 - Winter 10 Preview" post!)

And now, from The New Yorker, a must-attend event:

This Friday night at 7, the Morgan Library & Museum will hold a special screening of “Gahan Wilson: Born Dead, Still Weird,” a documentary, directed by Steven-Charles Jaffe, about the life and work of the New Yorker cartoonist of the gleefully macabre bent. Wilson and the director will be on hand for a Q. & A. after the screening (which is being presented in conjunction with the museum’s exhibition “On The Money: Cartoons for The New Yorker”). Meanwhile, we have some new work by Wilson: he illustrated this short animated adaptation (also directed by Jaffe) of “It Was a Dark and Silly Night,” a story by Neil Gaiman...
