Hit the link for the full thing. This part stood out to me.
NG. I find myself peculiarly reminded of these strange stories that it seems everybody who’s written comics extensively has. Was it you that told me of the mysterious Superman pauper?
GM: He was a real person, but he played it all in the character of Superman.
NG. Alan Moore talked about running into John Constantine one time, and…
GM: What happened to you?
NG: I had a few of them. The one that always haunted me — you’d think that it’d have been Morpheus — but it’s always been Death.
GM: She fancies you, Neil, let’s face it.
NG: One of [the stories] was the point where I realized how absolutely sane, in the sense of “lives in the real world,” Dave McKean is.
GM: Oh, God, yes. Thank God.
NG: You wouldn’t think to look at Dave’s imagery. He was going to the San Diego Comic-Con and he got there late. He was coming over from the UK and his plane came in incredibly late. I asked what happened and a guy had died on the plane, and they had to land and get him taken away to a hospital. It was this whole big thing, a guy in the middle of a transatlantic flight just died. “But I could tell I was coming to Comic-Con,” Dave said, “because there was one of your fans on the plane.” I said, “Oh?” And he said, “Yeah, she was dressed as Death.” And I thought, you know, if it were me, I would have wondered, just for a moment, “What are we saying here?” Dave, of course, has that gloriously rational mind that never does that, whereas you and I are both slightly mad.
GM: Yeah, slightly. Only slightly.
