Neil Gaiman’s famous fantasy novel, which is titled ‘American Gods’ will be getting a comic book adaptation in 2017. The book will be released by Dark Horse Comics, the publisher most famously behind Hellboy and many other extremely popular titles.
The series will be written by P. Craig Russell, and will feature art from Scott Hampton, along with covers from Glenn Fabry. The series will have three story arcs, through a planned 27 issues.
“There’s a tremendous amount of excitement, in my house and in the world, about the American Gods TV series coming up on Starz. What we’ve managed to keep a secret until now is that there is something just as exciting out there: American Gods, the comic, I’ve been watching P. Craig Russell breaking down the book into comic form, watching Scott Hampton painting the pages, watching Glenn Fabry create the covers, and grinning to myself with delight, because the American Gods comic is going to be an astonishing, faithful, and beautiful adaptation.”
The series will begin on March 15 2017, and we couldn’t be any more excited.
