Have I ever mentioned why Wonderful Neil is "Wonderful Neil" in my tags and journal? Well, to be fair, there are a lot of reasons, but one of them is that, besides my enjoying all of his actual "work" (i.e. the graphic novels, the books, the stories, the movies, the TV adaptations, and even the random doodles for charity), he also does things like go off and give interviews like this one. Which, despite being from March of 1999, a) was something I'd not yet read; and b) still kept me hanging on every word.
As you can see from the interview, everything he says is fascinating, and also he's Very, Very Nice. Which is a winning combination, and one of the many reasons we here at Foresthouse Central refer to him as Wonderful Neil.
