OK, after that pun, I’ve forfeited my right to some sort of future privilege in this world and all possible others. This magazine has been on the rack on the local Kroger’s for the past 2 months, and I do a double take every time I see it. Maybe I haven’t gotten used to seeing him without the shades. Yes, it is the author Neil Gaiman on the cover of a watch and luxury lifestyle magazine. Hi Neil.
Strangely I never saw any mention of this notably odd thing in the usual comic and pop culture bloggy sources. So here’s the camera phone pic I took a month ago. There’s a tiny bit about it on a Gaiman message board, and the actual hr:Watches site hasn’t been updated in months. Still the oddest thing on the newsstand.
