One of the leading figures of the “British Invasion” of American comics in the 1980s, Neil Gaiman, is the subject of Cyril Camus’s critical examination. He argues that although Gaiman is known primarily for this acclaimed DC Comics series, Sandman (1989–1996, 2009, 2013–2015), there is yet another side of his work that gets relatively little attention. Beginning with Gaiman’s outsider status—being an Englishman currently living in America, being a Jew raised with an Anglican educational background—Camus looks at the ways in which the author’s comics become intertextual links to, and at times even rewritings of, Hebrew Bible narratives.
