‘American Gods’ Comic Book Adaptation Is Coming To The UK From Dark Horse

Dark Horse Comics will be publishing the highly anticipated adaptation of American Gods as periodical comic books in England, it was announced yesterday. The adaptation of the Hugo and Nebula Award–winning novel by Neil Gaiman (How to Talk to Girls at Parties, The Sandman) will be adapted and co-written by P. Craig Russell (The Sandman: The Dream Hunters)—who previously adapted Gaiman’s bestselling novels Coraline and The Graveyard Book—and illustrated by acclaimed artist Scott Hampton (Hellboy, Batman). Dark Horse will adapt American Gods into twenty-seven single issues with three story arcs: Shadows, My Ainsel, and The Moment of the Storm. The first issue of American Gods: Shadows goes on sale March 15, 2017, ahead of Starz’ premiere of an American Gods TV show, adapted by Bryan Fuller (NBC’s Hannibal, CBS’s Star Trek: Discovery).

“Neil’s American Gods is on track to be the biggest comic book launch for Dark Horse Comics since the bestselling Fight Club 2 series,” said Mike Richardson, Dark Horse Publisher. “We’re thrilled with the book’s amazing creative team, and with the series generating international headlines, I’m very pleased to let fans know that Dark Horse will be releasing the American Gods comic books in the UK.”

The American Gods comic books will feature guest interior art by Walt Simonson (Thor), Mark Buckingham (Fables), Colleen Doran (The Sandman), P. Craig Russell, and more. The series features covers by some of the industry’s most acclaimed artists: Glenn Fabry (Preacher) and Adam Brown (Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens), and variant covers by David Mack (Kabuki, Fight Club 2). Acclaimed artist Dave McKean (Black Dog, Cages), who provided covers on Gaiman’s seminal Sandman for DC Comics, has also created a variant cover for the first issue.

Originally published in 2001 by William Morrow and Headline, American Gods is a Hugo and Nebula Award–winning novel. 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.
