All the places in this story are true places, although I have changed a few names—the Diogenes Club was really the Troy Club in Hanway Street, for example. Some of the people and events are true as well, truer than one might imagine. As I write this I find myself wondering whether that little playhouse still exists, or if they knocked it down and built houses on the ground where it waited, but I confess I have no desire actually to go and find out. -- Neil Gaiman

What title is this from? I recognize the story from Fragile Things, but I never knew that there was a comic adaptation.

I love Neil Gaiman's prose stories. And I love Gaiman's original comic books. But I could never find any love for these comic book adaptations of Gaiman's prose.

They keep too much of the narration, for my tastes at least. It's the reverse of "show don't tell". I understand the temptation of keeping the prose, but I feel like most of the stuff in the yellow boxes would be much better off as extra panels with art showing us the things.

This isn't a problem only with adaptations of Gaiman, I see it often in other novel-to-comics titles like George RR Martin etc.

Oh, man, motto. The graphic novel adaptation of Graveyard Book? Deeply disappointing.
