Back in 2001, Neil Gaiman wrote a book called American Gods. It won some awards, inspired a sequel called Anansi Boys, a TV adaption will be coming out soon… oh, yes. They’re also doing a comic book adaption. You’d have thought as big as that novel was, there’d already be a comics adaption of it, but Dark Horse is taking care of that today. They’ve got a prestige team on it in P. Craig Russel as co-writer & adapter and Scott Hampton on art. The adaption is schedule to run 27 issues in 3 arcs.
We’ve got a whopping 12 preview pages, so you should be able to get a pretty good taste for it. If you like it, it goes on sale today.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
