Just as Agnes Nutter prophesied, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett‘s world-famous 1990 novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch is arriving in an all-new format this summer. No, we’re not talking about the Amazon series nor the recently announced tabletop game tie-in, Good Omens: An Ineffable Game, scheduled to launch June 5. Instead, we mean the official (and ineffable) graphic novel adaptation from Eisner Award, Ringo Award, and Bram Stoker Award-winning cartoonist Colleen Doran, which will launch exclusively on Kickstarter this summer.
On May 24, 2023, the official announcement that the novel, Good Omens, about the birth of the son of Satan and the coming of the End Times would be adapted into a graphic novel was made by the Terry Pratchett Estate, Gaiman, and Doran via Twitter. And fans of the original novel are already preparing to throw their money at the project.
Ineffable. Back to work for me. https://t.co/MqlXrgQ4ML

Doran added, “For your amusement, the original cover art line drawing is currently on exhibit at the Society of Illustrator’s Museum exhibit HERE, and has been for over a month. No one guessed it was an official piece. Because we fibbed and said, it was a private commission.”
Doran has previously worked with Gaiman on other adaptations. In 2019, she worked with Gaiman on Dark Horse Comics’ adaptation of his 1994 short story “Snow, Glass, Apples,” which was described by The Comics Journal as a work that “solidifies her place as one of the greatest cartoonists of her generation.” For her work on the project, she won the Eisner Award for Adaptation from Another Medium. The work also earned the Ringo Award for Best Graphic Novel and the Bram Stoker Superior Achievement in a Graphic Novel Award from the Horror Writers Association.

No, they aren’t, it hasn’t even launched yet. That isn’t at all how these things work.
why kickstarter? other than it’s a great way to rake in $$$
with this property and these creators, many publishers ought to be interested
Calum Johnston is posting this over and over, but Colleen made him eat his words on her Facebook fan page.
