When I started reading Neil Gaiman, the first poem I really connected with of his was "The Day the Saucers Came". It's about the various science fiction apocalypse themes, merged into a sort of reverse love letter. Now an artist, Jouni Koponen, has made an illustrated version of the poem and it is fantastic!
Please click on the link and read the whole poem and then if you want to purchase a printed copy, hurry over to Neverwear and buy one of the 500 numbered copies. What says "I love you" at Christmas more than flying saucers, zombies and biblical nightmares?
Wishing you the best of days,
p.s. We got our snow! It's coming down right now.
