Editorial Reviews


“The Holy Grail of Gaiman comics.”--SY FY WIRE

“An atmospheric, beautifully illustrated take on Gaiman’s story.”--AV CLUB

“If you’re excited for the show and want to know what to expect from what looks like it could be the Next Big Thing on TV, make sure to pick this up”--IGN

“Neil Gaiman’s multi-award winning novel finally gets the comic adaptation it deserves.”--BROKEN FRONTIER

What better time than now to adapt American Gods into sequential art, and who better to do it than P. Craig Russell and Scott Hampton, two masters of the craft known in part for their collaborations with Gaiman in the past?.”--PASTE MAGAZINE

"Russell’s lyrical layouts bring Gaiman’s visual, vivid prose to life like no other artist."--CBR

“This adaptation is perfect.”--GEEKS OF DOOM

“Dark Horse has another hit on its hands …. They’re going to have whole bunch of new readers falling in love with the story for the first time as well as OG fans finding a new way to love the story in a new and exciting way.”--GRAPHIC POLICY

“It’s a good year for Gaiman fans.”--FANGIRL NATION

“Dark Horse’s comic book adaption is an appropriate tribute to his long-form vision... Although both mediums are image-oriented and the source material is the same, adapting the novel to television versus comic books offers an entirely different set of circumstances and challenges, ones which should make both takes unique in their own right; giving fans of American Gods an entertaining fable set to unravels in two varied mediums.”--SCREEN RANT

“Utterly gorgeous.”--COMICS BEAT

“P. Craig Russell is the real star here.”--UPROXX

“I love the art.”--GEEK DAD 

“Visually striking… will appeal to new readers and those existing fans.”--BLEEDING COOL

“A gorgeous adaptation.”--FREAK SUGAR

“This can easily become your next favorite title.”--COMICS GRINDER

“Wonderful.”--IMPULSE GAMER

“I knew this would be good, but it was actually great.”--13TH DIMENSION 

"By staying true to its source material and retaining Gaiman's strong narrative voice, AMERICAN GODS #1 presents a stellar example of how to make an adaptation." -COMICVERSE


“Neil Gaiman is one of those once in a millennia creators, much like Shakespeare, whose work is thought-provokingly complex yet interpretable on multiple levels. P. Craig Russell is one of those creators whose made an artform out of translating cherished works to the comic book medium.”--COMICS BEAT --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
