Things We Saw Today: Neil Gaiman Writes A Story On A T-Shirt

Things We Saw Today

Neil Gaiman writes stories all the time. He eats them and breathes them. But for the first time, the writer has penned a short story on a t-shirt. It’s a preview of Comics on Tees Vol. 6 from Threadless. In the past they’ve featured work from Becky Cloonan, Jill Thompson, Jeff Lemire, and lots more. Gaiman teamed with artist Ben Templesmith on this one and you can read the story here. (via WearCareful
