Neil Gaiman on Stephen Colbert

Newberry Award-winner Neil Gaiman visited "The Colbert Report," and the interview is fun and insightful.

Gaiman first made his name in comic books, especially the fantasy series "Sandman." An issue of that series, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," (based, of course, on the Shakespeare play) is to date the only comic book to win a World Fantasy Award.

Below is the interview. A couple of four-letter words are bleeped out, so beware.

They also name-drop Art Spiegelman, writer/artist of "Maus," a book that often makes its way into schools.
