    1. I really wanted to read a few more books for my challenge and I remembered that I never read all the Humble Bundle Neil Gaiman books. At 12 pages, this is super short. It's a comic where the author tries to answer the question 'Where do I get inspiration?' and the creation of an utopian world where all oddities have been removed. An interesting, typical Neil answer. On to the next book from the bundle.

    2. 3 very different stories. The first one was silly and fun, the second one a social commentary, and the third is a poem illustrated by Dave McKean. Very interesting to see how they've both developed.

    3. Story 1: An honest answerNeil having fun with the void and ideas - as represented by light-bulbs.Story 2: from homogenous to honeyIn 1988 a law was passed in the UK that ‘a local authority "shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality" or "promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship’. Clause 28, as it was known caused much outcry and wasn’t removed u [...]

    4. "Where do you get your inspiration from" is probably the hardest question an artist can answer, methinks.

    5. This is three comics. The first one is calledAn Honest Answer and is actually quite funny. Gaiman gives an honest answer to the question writers get asked the most: Where do you get all your ideas? And it's hilarious because I can relate. The second one is called Villanelle and it's so short that I honestly can't remember what it's about, but it looks so cool. The third one is called From Homogenous to Honey, and it's scary. Not scary as in horror, but scary as in how true it is. An Honest Answe [...]

    6. Three pieces of Gaiman juvenilia; a four page joke about artistic inspiration with a good punchline; a piece using the history of civilisation to fulminate against the proposed Clause 28 and a poem illustrated by Dave McKean. Of these, From Homogenous to Honey, the anti-Clause 28 piece, is the most interesting, even though advanced political circumstances mean it’s dated and clearly the work of an angry young man it shows an admirable scope and range. None of these are essential and probably o [...]

    7. A Humble Bundle purchase, An Honest Answer is three comic strips, the first is "an honest answer" to how author's get ideas from Infinity, the second "Villanelle" is a strange question with uncertain answers, and "From Homogenus to Honey" answers the question of the 'utopia' you're left with if you removed the concept of "gay pride" from all the books, TV shows, radio shows and peoples of history, a answer as faceless as the suggestion.

    8. I got this as part of the 2016 Humble Bundle.This includes three early pieces of Gaiman: "An Honest Answer" is a remark/joke about the source of creativity. "From Homogenus to Honey" is a simplistic social commentary piece about a world without anything to do with homosexuality. "Villanelle" is an illustrated poem. All three are quite redundant and left me with no lasting impression, though as a completionist fan I'm happy I got a chance to waste my time on them.

    9. A collection of unprinted comics. One is social commentary over the importance of gay people for society. Second is a bit of fluff over Gaiman's creative process. Lastly we have a poem illustrated by McKean. They all made me smile.
