Last year at New York Comic Con, Dark Horse announced the comic adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. Ahead of this year’s New York Comic Con, Dark Horse has just revealed more details about the next nine-issue story, American Gods: My Ainsel, which follows Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday as they continue their bizarre trans American road trip to recruit reinforcements for the imminent god war.

P. Craig Russell and Scott Hampton (Hellboy, Batman) return to bring more of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel to life. P. Craig Russell previously adapted Neil Gaiman’s Coraline and The Graveyard Book. Scott Hampton illustrates the complex world Gaiman created.

Glenn Fabry (Preacher) and Adam Brown (Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens) return to create hauntingly beautiful cover art, while David Mack (Kabuki, Fight Club 2) returns with gorgeous variant covers worthy of the Gods.
