The comic book adaptation of American Gods, the Hugo, Bram Stoker, Locus, World Fantasy, and Nebula Award-winning novel and hit Starz television series by Neil Gaiman, returns with American Gods: My Ainsel #1, on sale from tomorrow in all good comic shops.

The bizarre road trip across America continues as heroes gather reinforcements for the imminent god war!

Shadow and Wednesday leave the House on the Rock and continue their journey across the country where they set up aliases, meet new gods, and prepare for war.

The Dark Horse American Gods series has earned much praise so far. “The careful preservation of the voice of the original series will please Gaiman purists, and Hampton’s atmospheric artwork is outstanding,” enthuses Publishers Weekly. “This is a suitably epic treatment of a grand saga, with art that brings enough new life to the popular fiction for its many followers to add to their collections.”

“Luckily, TV’s not the only place to look for good American Gods adaptations,” Entertainment Weekly noted.
