The Good Omens Official (And Ineffable) Graphic Novel On Kickstarter

The Good Omens Graphic Novel will be adapted from Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's novelby Colleen Doran, for Kickstarter.

My copy of Good Omens was bought on release and is much battered. Signed by both Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett at different times, one autograph demands that I burn the book, the other asks why I haven't burned it yet. And I never will, though regular rereading and lending to others has done a good job at destroying what is left of it. Obviously, I need another copy, and the TV series has made it a lot easier to buy. But maybe I should wait for the Good Omens Graphic Novel, adapted from the original by graphic novelist Colleen Doran, who has a history of adapting Gaiman's work for this medium.
