Dark Horse comics has announced that Neil Gaiman’s American Gods will be adapted into comic books for release in 2017. The team of talent assembled for the project was given in a press release:
Dark Horse tapped P. Craig Russell (The Sandman: The Dream Hunters)—who, having worked on Coraline and The Graveyard Book, is no stranger to adapting Neil Gaiman’s work—to adapt and co-write the comic series, while Scott Hampton (Hellboy, Batman) lends his illustrative skills to the complex world Gaiman created. Glenn Fabry (Preacher) and Adam Brown (Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens) create the hauntingly beautiful cover art. David Mack (Kabuki, Fight Club 2) and Dave McKean (Black Dog, Cages) provide variant covers for the first issue. The American Gods comic series will feature guest interior art by Walt Simonson (Thor), Mark Buckingham (Fables), Colleen Doran (The Sandman), P. Craig Russell, and more.
Neil Gaiman expressed his excitement for the comic, saying that it “is going to be an astonishing, faithful, and beautiful adaptation.” The series will be contain 27 issues divided into three parts, which will then be released as a set of three hardback graphic novels. The first issue will hit stands on March 15, 2017.
