A blogger we follow at our house says he just got a box of free comics through an unusual regift. The military "Man from Missouri" is serving in Iraq, and he writes:
So Neil Gaiman gets alot of free comics sent to him (being a famous dude in the comics world it makes sense). He does not have time for them all, so he boxed up a set and sent them to a friend of his who happens to be serving in Iraq. She has no use for them and has such passed them on to me.
This turned out pretty cool.
Neil Gaiman, of course, is the graphic novelist who wrote The Sandman and American Gods, among other classics.
