COMICS: A Dark Horse Adaptation Of Neil Gaiman's AMERICAN GODS Is Coming In 2017

As an accompaniment to the Starz TV series, 2017 will also bring us a Dark Horse comic adaptation of Neil Gaiman's celebrated fantasy novel, American Gods. Check out the cover art for the first issue...

Next year, the long-awaited small-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods will premiere on Starz, and we've just learned that fans of the Sandman writer's epic fantasy adventure novel are going to have another reason to be excited in 2017.

According to EW, Dark Horse will publish an American Gods comic series which will be written by P. Craig Russell and illustrated by Scott Hampton, with covers by Glenn Gabry and Adam Brown. The cover to the first issue can be seen below, and features a depiction of the buffalo-headed man that acts as a dream-guide to the story's protagonist, Shadow.

“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,” said the novel's author Neil Gaiman in a statement. “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 American Gods comic will consist of 27 issues, divided into three story arcs: Shadows, My Ainsel, and The Moment of the Storm. The first issue of American Gods: Shadows will hit stands March 15, 2017.
