Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology Rides a Dark Horse!

16 Dec

Today, Dark Horse Comics is pleased to announce the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology into comic book form! Featuring a pantheon of award-winning artists, including Mike Mignola, P. Craig Russell, and Jerry Ordway. Colorists Dave Stewart and Lovern Kindzierski and letterer Galen Showman round out the creative team in this amazing first issue. This new series will feature covers by P. Craig Russell with colors by Lovern Kindzierski and variant covers by David Mack. Subsequent issues of Norse Mythology (18 issues total) will feature a mix of major interior artists to be announced later.

“I fell in love with the Norse gods from reading about them in comics as a boy, so it’s only fitting that they return to the medium that started it,” said Norse Mythology creator Neil Gaiman. “I cannot wait to see P. Craig Russell and his collaborators tell the old stories for a new generation.”

After previously writing about deities in American Gods and The Sandman, Gaiman finally brings readers to follow the northern gods in their own setting in this comic book adaptation of the hit novel! Gaiman and P. Craig Russell breathe new life into the ancient Norse stories by taking readers through the creation of the Nine Worlds to the epic origin and adventures of Thor, Odin, and Loki all the way to the end of life—Ragnarök.

The first issue of Norse Mythology goes on sale May 27, 2020.
