Last October during NYCC it was announced that a comic book adaption of Neil Gaiman's 2001 novel, American Gods, was in the works. The first issue comes to comic shops this Wednesday, March 15.
Dark Horse describes this premier issue as:
Shadow Moon just got out of jail, only to discover his wife is dead. Defeated, broke and uncertain as to where to go from here, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, who employs him to serve as his bodyguard -- thrusting Shadow into a deadly world of the supernatural, where ghosts of the past come back from the dead, and a brewing war between old and new gods hits a boiling point.
The Hugo, Bram Stoker, Locus, World Fantasy, and Nebula award–winning novel and upcoming Starz television series by Neil Gaiman is adapted as a comic series for the first time!
Written by: Neil Gaiman, P. Craig Russell
Art & Colors by: Scott Hampton
Covers by: Glenn Fabry, Dave McKean, David Mack
On sale: March 15, 2017
And as a reminder, the eight-episode live action adaption, starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Pablo Schreiber and Emily Browning, premiers April 30, 2017 on Starz.

About the Author - IvCNuB4
IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
