Neil Gaiman's Midnight Days is a 1999 compilation of new and previously released stories written by Neil Gaiman and published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics.

Background[edit]

Due to Gaiman's increased popularity resulting from his critically acclaimed series Sandman, DC chose to collect some of his earliest and hardest- to-find work in a single volume. Included is his previously unpublished "tryout" story for DC editor Karen Berger. The story, "Jack in the Green", was illustrated by Stephen R. Bissette and John Totleben, colored by Tatjana Wood, and lettered by John Costanza, the same team that collaborated on much of Alan Moore's celebrated run on Swamp Thing.

Other stories in the collection include:

The expanded "Deluxe Edition" published in 2012 also includes the framing sequence from Welcome Back to the House of Mystery #1, illustrated by Sergio Aragones
