READ A NEW COMIC SERIES!
By: Stacey A. Giulianti, Owner
While established comic book publishers such as Marvel and DC continue to enhance their existing characters, new and independent publishing houses, like Dark Horse, Valiant, and Image, are attempting to stretch the boundaries of graphic story-telling like never before.
One example is American Gods: Shadows #1 from Dark Horse Comics. Written by Neil Gaiman and P. Craig Russell – along with amazing art by Scott Hampton – this book-to-comic adaptation is destined to be a major hit. As described by the publisher, Shadow Moon recently leaves prison and discovers that his wife has died. Not sure where to go next, he meets “Mr. Wednesday,” who hires Shadow Moon as a bodyguard. The main character then finds himself in the world of the supernatural, with a battle between gods about to commence.
This particular new series will also have a television show coming soon, and the source material won several industry awards. New comics like American Gods should be on your “to-read” list!
