Weird Tales honorees spotted in the wild!
The Weird Tales team was delighted this weekend to present author Neil Gaiman and animator Bill Plympton — both guests at the New York Comic Con — with plaques commemorating their place in our list of “The 85 Weirdest Storytellers of the Past 85 Years.” Neil graciously accepted his award from editorial director Stephen Segal during a VIP reception for donors to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, while Bill received his at an exciting showcase of his latest films.
“85 Weirdest” honoree Grant Morrison was a guest at the con too, but proved elusive — so before passing along his plaque through proper channels, our assistant Renee Farrah did her best to convince the writer’s most famous fictional colleague to accept on his behalf.
