27 números, 3 sagas de la mano de Dark Horse:
Dark Horse Comics has announced it will adapt American Gods into 27 single issues with three story arcs: Shadows, My Ainsel, and The Moment of the Storm, to be collected into three hardcover graphic novels.
The first issue of American Gods: Shadows goes on sale March 15.
. Originally published in 2001 by William Morrow and Headline, American Gods is a Hugo and Nebula Awardâ€“winning novel by Neil Gaiman. North American rights were acquired from Gaiman's literary agent, Merrilee Heifetz at Writers House. American Gods is the latest Gaiman adaptation from Dark Horse, preceded by graphic novel adaptations of How to Talk to Girls at Parties, Troll Bridge, Forbidden Brides, and many more. Starz will also premiere an American Gods TV show in spring 2017, adapted by Bryan Fuller.
Dark Horse tapped P. Craig Russell -- 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 lends his illustrative skills to the complex world Gaiman created. Glenn Fabry and Adam Brown create the cover art. David Mack and Dave McKean provide variant covers for the first issue. The American Gods comic series will feature guest interior art by Walt Simonson, Mark Buckingham, Colleen Doran and more.
American Gods creator Neil Gaiman explained his excitement for the upcoming American Gods adaptations: "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. 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."
American Gods: Shadows #1 finds Shadow Moon released from jail only to discover his wife has died. Broken and uncertain about his future, Shadow Moon meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, who employs him to serve as his bodyguard. This fateful decision thrusts Shadow into a deadly supernatural world where ghosts of the past come back from the dead, and a brewing war between old and new gods hits a boiling point.
