Neil Gaiman's modern fantasy novel American Gods will receive a comic book adaptation in 2017. Written and laid out by longtime Gaiman collaborator P. Craig Russell, American Gods will feature art from Scott Hampton and covers from Glenn Fabry. The series is planned to consist of three story arcs comprising 27 issues.
“There’s a tremendous amount of excitement, in my house and in the world, about the American Gods TV series coming up on Starz. What we’ve managed to keep a secret until now is that there is something just as exciting out there: American Gods, the comic," explained Gaiman. "I’ve been watching P. Craig Russell breaking down the book into comic form, watching Scott Hampton painting the pages, watching Glenn Fabry create the covers, and grinning to myself with delight, because the American Gods comic is going to be an astonishing, faithful, and beautiful adaptation.”
The first arc, entitled "American Gods: Shadows," will begin in American Gods #1 on March 15, 2017.
