He sued "Spawn" creator Todd McFarlane for violation of copyright and non-payment of royalties in January, 2002. The case went to court in October 2002, when the seven-person federal jury in Wisconsin took three days to decide in favor of Gaiman, agreeing that McFarlane used Gaiman's created characters without permission or compensation. Gaiman was awarded $45,000 plus court costs.

His family is Jewish (from Poland and Latvia). His last name is properly pronounced "gay-mun," not "guy-mun," as he says people often mispronounce it. Gaiman explains that it is an Anglicized version. The name was originally spelled "Haiman".

Interviewed celebrities for Penthouse and Knave, two English magazines in the 1980s. He thought they were tamer than they're US counterparts. He reflected that Penthouse had nothing to do with women and everything to do with pictures of women.

The novel Alice in Wonderland is an influence on Gaiman, e.g. he likens a crescent moon to a grin, like the Cheshire Cat in Gaiman's novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane. His work also seems inspired by the Brothers Grimm.

In his novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Gaiman has one of the characters say "spit-spot" from Mary Poppins (1964). He's a big fan of the books written by P.L. Travers.
