Dark Horse Adapts Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology Into 18 Issue Series With P Craig Russell, Mike Mignola, Jerry Ordway and More

In May, Dark Horse Comics will continue their adaptations of Neil Gaiman's prose work into comics with Norse Mythology, into an 18 issue series, each issue with different artists, including Mike Mignola, P. Craig Russell, and Jerry Ordway. The first issue is adapted by Neil Gaiman and long-standing Gaiman adapter P. Craig Russell, Dave Stewart and Lovern Kindzierski as colourists and letterer Galen Showman. The series will feature covers by P. Craig Russell coloured by Lovern Kindzierski with  variant covers by David Mack.

"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.
