I have. AG is one of my fave novels. Sandman (for the most part) is one of my fave graphic novels. Gaiman's best in each genre, I think.

Neil Gaiman has revealed that a film adaptation of his book American Gods is in the works.
The novel, first published in 2001, takes place in a world in which gods and mythological creatures exist.
In a recent interview, Gaiman exclusively revealed to DS that a director "who has many, many Oscars" is already on board the project.
"I'm going to be having a meeting in LA with the people that the film rights have been sold to," he confirmed. "I'm going to be... talking to them, find out where they're going and if there's any way that I can help."
He also described the unnamed director attached to the film as "a genius".
"He fell in love with this [novel] about six or seven years ago and has not given up," explained the writer.
Some fans of the novel may be wary of the extended onscreen adaptation, since the novel itself is only 624 pages.
That adds up to about 10 pages per episode, if you were to divvy it up.
Keep in mind, though, Gaiman himself will be writing the episodes, and he already expressed a desire to expand on the material in the book.
"I want to make it faithful, but also would like it to have a few surprises for people who read the book," Gaiman said in an interview with Collider.com. "I hate that thing where people have read the books and they go, ‘Oh, I know everything that’s going to happen.’ I want to be like, ‘Okay, no you don’t.’
"I want there to still be some surprises."
