Which other Gaiman characters should get a spin-off?
The Corinthian (Sandman comics)
Another Sandman character to explore could be the charismatic nightmare Corinthian, who is very much a fan of the phrase “an eye for an eye” – ie he has mouths where his eyes should be, and uses them to eat other people’s eyes. Hey, we didn’t say it would be a heroic spin-off…
In American Gods, loveable rogue Mr Wednesday – a wise-cracking, womanising conman – is revealed to be an incarnation of Norse god Odin. We feel we’re definitely owed some sort of on-the-road prequel.
Crowley & Aziraphale (Good Omens)
Good Omens, co-written with Terry Pratchett, gave us the angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley. Given that one was the guardian of Eden while the other tempted Eve onto a path of devastation, they bounced off each other pretty well. Buddy movie, anyone?
Marquis de Carabas (Neverwhere)
He’s technically already had a spin-off with short story “How The Marquis Got His Coat Back”, but that surely can’t be the last we hear of the cunning trickster. He is, by far, the best character in a book already full of great characters.
