First Impression: AMERICAN GODS: SHADOW #1

by Glenn Snow | January 21st, 2017

The cover of this one really caught my eye. Who isn’t a big fan of Minotaurs? Then you see that it’s from Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell. And upon further investigation, you discover that Starz is making a television series of the book too. I smell a hit.

“NEIL GAIMAN! P. CRAIG RUSSELL! SCOTT HAMPTON! 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!”
