The Amazon/BBC Two co-production Good Omens (based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s global bestseller) has cast its Beelzebub and three of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
Anna Maxwell Martin (Philomena) is set to play the ultimate demon; Mireille Enos (The Killing) will portray War; Yusuf Gatewood (The Originals) will play Famine, and Lourdes Faberes (Knightfall) will be Pollution.
“We are hoping that Death will be played by…DEATH,” added Gaiman.
What do you get when you combine Sherlock Holmes and H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulu Mythos?
Neil Gaiman’s award-winning short story A Study in Emerald – which is being adapted as a graphic novel by Rafael Albuquerque (Ei8ht, American Vampire), Rafael Scavone (Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special #1) and Dave Stewart (Black Hammer, Hellboy) for Dark Horse.
The 80-page hardcover edition of A Study in Emerald will be in stores on June 20, 2018.
In the Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett novel, the Archangel Gabriel has what amounts to a bit part – but when he started adapting the book for TV, Gaiman decided angels should have a better/bigger role in it and Gabriel, God’s primary messenger, got a lot more lines.
Now Jon Hamm has been cast as the Archangel Gabriel, who is everything Aziraphale is not: tall, good-looking, charismatic and impeccably dressed.
Good Omens is an Amazon Prime Video series that is slated to premiere in 2019 and stars Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale and David Tennant as the demon, Crowley.
Neil Gaiman posted a photo of David Tennant and Michael sheen in costume as the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale for Amazon Prime Video’s adaptation of Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s brilliant fantasy novel, Good Omens.
The photo was shared on Twitter to announce the beginning of production on the limited series which will launch globally on amazon Prime Video in 2019.
Dark Horse will release a deluxe hardcover edition of Neil Gaiman’s Only the End of the World Again on January 24, 2018.
Blending the worlds of H.P. Lovecraft and Roger Zelazny, the book follows a claims adjuster who sets up shop in Innsmouth, Massachusetts only to discover that the world may be ending and that the instrument of destruction is a werewolf . . . which he also happens to be.
Only the End of the World Again is available for pre-order on Amazon, TFAW, and at your local comic shop. Visit DarkHorse.com for more information.
American Gods – the elegantly odd series based on Neil Gaiman’s epic war-of-the-gods novel – has been renewed for a second season.
The series (and the novel) follows ex-con Shadow Moon and the mysterious Mr. Wednesday on a road trip across America to recruit old gods (Czernobog, Biquilz, Anubis) from many mythologies to his side for a war against encroaching modern gods (Media, Technical Boy).
Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is being adapted for television by a team led by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies, Hannibal). It will undoubtedly be one of the stranger shows on TV, but it won’t be on TV for a while.
Fortunately, Dark Horse Comics has enlisted P. Craig Russell and Scott Hampton to adapt the novel for comics and we don’t have to wait – it’s coming out on March 15th.
The epic tale of a man caught in a war between the Old Gods and the New, American Gods follows ex-convict Shadow Moon as he takes a job as bodyguard to the mysterious Mr. Wednesday – a man who seems to almost know more about him than he does himself.
