He's especially famous for his UrbanFantasy works, including the renowned ''ComicBook/TheSandman'' comic series, which was the only work in its medium to win a WorldFantasyAward for Best Short Story [[note]]To prevent it happening again, they changed the rules so that comic books had to be relegated to their own special category, and couldn't be judged alongside prose works[[/note]]. Two of his novels, ''Literature/{{Stardust}}'' and ''Literature/{{Coraline}},'' have been made into movies. He's also written scripts for other projects, such as ''Film/MirrorMask'' by Creator/DaveMcKean and the ''Series/{{Neverwhere}}'' TV series. In addition, he worked on the translated script of ''Anime/PrincessMononoke''. More recently, his young adult work ''Literature/TheGraveyardBook'' became the first book to win both the NewberyMedal and the CarnegieMedal. When they started running out of awards to give him, they began making up new awards specially for him.
