This is it, folks. This is what many of us have been waiting for. This is the year that Neil Gaiman takes over the world. Well, maybe not the whole world but he’s certainly trying to take over the literary world. With an upcoming Starz television series being adapted from his Hugo, Bram Stoker, Locus, World Fantasy, and Nebula award–winning novel American Gods, it seems only fitting that there be a comic version, too. Right? Thankfully, Dark Horse Comics has stepped up with American Gods: Shadows #1, the first of an ongoing series based on the aforementioned book. Other than a few teaser pages I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but those look magnificent.

Sporting three different covers (seen below) by Glenn Fabry, Dave McKean, and David Mack (my personal favorite), this first issue sets up what is arguably Gaiman’s best novel to date. Imagine a world where the old gods have had to learn to coexist alongside what people worship in this day and age. Coexisting is a pipe dream and the struggle to survive is all too real. This adventure spans the whole of the United States as our primary character Shadow finds employment with a shady character by the name of Mr. Wednesday. The job takes them to some exotic and strange locations and involves some sordid and unique individuals.

In comic form, seeing is believing. The book was stupendous and my expectation for the comic is the same. I am literally giddy with excitement, how about you? The first issue hits stands on the Ides of March, so make sure you get yours!
