Neil Gaiman wins Newbery Medal

Comicbook author honored for 'Graveyard'

Comicbook guru and sci-fi author Neil Gaiman received the John Newbery Medal for his contribution to children’s literature for his tome “The Graveyard Book.” The story of an orphan raised by ghosts was singled out by the American Library Assn. for its “delicious mix of murder, fantasy, humor and human longing.”

Gaiman’s recent screen credits include the upcoming “Coraline” and the screenplay for “Beowulf,” which he also produced. He also wrote the novel “Stardust,” which was adapted for the screen in 2007 at Paramount starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes and Robert DeNiro.

Gaiman is best known for this work on DC/Vertigo’s “Sandman” series, which has sparked interest in Hollywood since the late ’90s. He’s currently working on a bigscreen makeover of Vertigo Comic’s “Death: The High Cost of Living.”
