In the lead up to New York Comic Con next week, Dark Horse have announced a second series release date for the next arc of their American Gods comic.

The publisher has revealed more details about the next nine-issue story arc, called American Gods: My Ainsel, which follows Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday as they continue their American road trip to recruit beings for the “imminent god war”. 

P. Craig Russell and Scott Hampton (Hellboy, Batman) will  be returning to continue to adapt and illustrate the book from the original novel by Neil Gaiman. Glenn Fabry (Preacher) and Adam Brown (Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens) will also return to create cover art. David Mack (Kabuki, Fight Club 2) joins them with his evocative cover art.

The first issue of American Gods: My Ainsel will go on sale on March 14, 2018.

Readers will be able to catch up on the series by purchasing the hardcover collection of American Gods: Shadows. The 264-page American Gods: Shadows collects the first nine issues of the series, along with art process pieces layouts, character designs, and variant cover art by Becky Cloonan, Skottie Young, Fábio Moon, Dave McKean, and more.
