“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,” said the novel's author Neil Gaiman in a statement. “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 American Gods comic will consist of 27 issues, divided into three story arcs: Shadows, My Ainsel, and The Moment of the Storm. The first issue of American Gods: Shadows will hit stands March 15, 2017.
