Event: Grains of Sand

Grains of Sand exhibit

October 5, 2013 – March 16, 2014

In the SF Weekly, Jonathan Curiel discusses his experience accompanying Neil Gaiman as he laid eyes on the Cartoon Art Museum exhibit "Grains of Sand: 25 Years of The Sandman" for the first time.  The exhibit marks the 25th anniversary of the most critically acclaimed comic book series, Sandman.

“‘This is Mike [Dringenberg] changing the history of comics,’ Gaiman says as he looked at original pages of “The Sound of Her Wings.” ‘This is where everything changed. Sandman up to that point was a horror comic that sort of recapitulated other DC horror comics. It existed in a very solid tradition. Sandman No. 8 — it found its voice. I found my voice. I think Mike found his voice. And we did something that was not like anything anybody had done before.’”
