unnamedDark Horse Comics‘ adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s American Gods is going to be a reunion of sorts when considering the number of talents involved. Most of them have worked, in some capacity, on this author’s works before.

This company announced in their press release that they have tapped P.

Glenn Fabry (Preacher) and Adam Brown (Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens) create the hauntingly beautiful cover art.
