P. Craig Russell’s New Cover for Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book

Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book is already a classic, having won the Newbery Medal in 2009 and the hearts of countless creeped-out children. But now it is being transmogrified into a two-volume graphic novel! Each chapter is illustrated by artists including Kevin Nowlan, P. Craig Russell, Tony Harris, Scott Hampton, Galen Showman, Jill Thompson, Stephen B. Scott, David Lafuente, and Galen Showman, with Russell also providing the covers for each volume.


Here’s the cover of Volume II, with a confused-looking Nobody Owens reaching out to catch a knife...maybe he should rethink that decision?


And here’s an image from earlier in Volume I, of lonely Nobody standing at the cemetery gate. This pretty much sums up childhood, right here.

We can’t wait to see the full work! Volume I will be released on July 29th, with Volume II coming on September 30th.

Well, the preview art on P Craig Russell's Website looks absolutely beautiful. I will be getting this but the split into two volumes concerns me. I hope the page count for both is high because you just know the price for one volume is not going to be below $24.95

Very interesting! Certainly looking forward to this. Now I am just hoping that Swedish publisher Bonnier-Carlsen will bring the Swedish translation back into print, so that I can read it to my niece who hasn't started studying English yet. The book is nearly impossible to find in Swedish at the moment, having been out of print for a year or two.

I am working on my own translation, but while I find enjoyment in the task, I also find I do not have the time for the work...

@1: Barnes & Noble has the price listed at fifteen dollars for the first volume is pretty standard for a YA graphic novel. I suspect there'll not be a hardcover edition of this.
