P. Craig Russell and Scott Hampton (Hellboy, Batman) return to bring more of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel to life in American Gods: My Ainsel. P. Craig Russell previously adapted Neil Gaiman’s Coraline and The Graveyard Book. Scott Hampton illustrates the complex world Gaiman created. Glenn Fabry (Preacher) and Adam Brown (Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens) return to create hauntingly beautiful cover art.

Praise for American Gods:

”Provocative yet fun…Gaiman has applied his vast breadth of knowledge about all things mythological to a truly high concept…American Gods works because of Gaiman’s singular control over the proceedings, his nimble and intelligent voice, and his gift for painting spectacle and splashing big themes across his canvas.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Gaiman has a deft hand with the mythologies he tinkers with here.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Original, engrossing, and endlessly inventive, a picaresque journey across America where the travelers are even stranger than the roadside attractions.”—George R. R. Martin
