Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel Anansi Boys comes to comics

The comic adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s award-winning novel Anansi Boys is here. Packed with sibling rivalry, jealous deities and more, the story has been faithfully adapted and #1 hit comic shops this week, from US publisher Dark Horse.

Bestselling author Neil Gaiman joins forces with Eisner-nominated Adora writer Marc Bernardin and Thief of Thieves co-creator Shawn Martinbrough to adapt Gaiman’s Locus and British Fantasy Award-winning novel as a comic book series for the first time — which is soon to be a television show on Amazon Prime.

“Fat” Charlie Nancy leads a boring life as a boring Londoner, until he discovers two things: That his recently deceased father was, in fact, Anansi the Spider, the trickster god of African folklore, and that he has a twin brother he’s never met. Which kicks off a reality-spanning odyssey of sibling rivalry, jealous deities, and one poor soul who’ll realize what it means to be a god…

Adapted by Marc Bernardin, Shawn Martinbrough, Chris Sotomayor, Jim Campbell with covers by David Mack, Denys Cowan and Shawn Martinbrough, Anansi Boys #1 is available now from all good comic shops, and there are more details here on the Dark Horse website.
