More ‘Norse Mythology’ On The Way From Neil Gaiman & Dark Horse Comics

by James Ferguson

The Neil Gaiman comic book library continues to expand as Dark Horse Comics has announced Norse Mythology II. Adapted by P. Craig Russell with artists Matt Horak, Mark Buckingham, Gabriel Walta, and Sandy Jarrell, and colorist Lovern Kindzierski, the follow up series features variant covers by David Mack. It will run for six issues beginning in June.

Explore the origins of poetry—good and bad—in this tale of malicious dwarfs, suspicious giants, and the wise god Kvasir, whose eventual fate leads to the creation of a powerful mead that many will fight and die for.

“It has been an absolute delight working with the slate of artists assembled for our adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology,” says Russell. “Sending the artists the layouts and then seeing their finished pages come rolling back in, each having brought their own unique artistic vision to the page, has been great fun.”

Norse Mythology #1 is set for release on June 16th, 2021.
