American Gods Comic Book is Coming
Dark Horse to Adapt Neil Gaiman’s American Gods Into Comic Book and Graphic Novel Format!
Fans of Neil Gaiman‘s American Gods have yet another reason to get excited. Not only is American Gods in development for Starz, it will now also be adapted by Dark Horse into comic book and graphic novel format.
Originally published in 2001 by William Morrow and Headline, American Gods is a Hugo and Nebula Award–winning novel by Neil Gaiman (How to Talk to Girls at Parties, The Sandman). North American rights were acquired from Gaiman’s literary agent, Merrilee Heifetz at Writers House. American Gods is the latest Gaiman adaptation from Dark Horse, preceded by graphic novel adaptations of How to Talk to Girls at Parties, Troll Bridge, Forbidden Brides, and many more.
Dark Horse tapped P. Craig Russell (The Sandman: The Dream Hunters)—who, having worked on Coraline and The Graveyard Book, is no stranger to adapting Neil Gaiman’s work—to adapt and co-write the comic series, while Scott Hampton (Hellboy, Batman) lends his illustrative skills to the complex world Gaiman created. Glenn Fabry (Preacher) and Adam Brown (Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens) create the hauntingly beautiful cover art.
The American Gods comic book is scheduled to hit stands March 15, 2017, so mark your calendars and be sure to let your local retailer know that you want a copy so they order enough copies.
