Mr. Nancy is One Swingin’ Spider in the New Retro Cover for Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys!

Three more retro Neil Gaiman covers have been unleashed upon the world! I already wrote about Robert E. McGinnis’ gorgeous new cover for American Gods, and now Gaiman has shred the next three in the new paperback series on his journal Here’s Anansi Boys, done in the style of a 1960s comic novel. I have to assume that Mr. Nancy would be pleased with hipness of this lounge scene, and Gaiman loved it so much he bought the print!

This new edition will hit stores on October 25th. Gaiman also shared the equally fantastic covers for Stardust and Neverwhere, and I’ve posted them below the cut.

Stardust looks like a wonderful 1970s homage to The Last Unicorn:

And Neverwhere is pure 1970s Gothic:

So lovely. You can learn more about the covers over at Gaiman’s journal (be warned: post also contains adorable baby pictures) and if you want even more book cover awesomeness, you can check out The Art of Robert E. McGinnis!
