Fanart Friday: American Gods edition

When I read Neil Gaiman's incredible book American Gods earlier this year I was awestruck by the sheer magnitude of the awesomeness that emanate from the pages. You can read my review for the full length love letter to Neil Gaiman about this book but the short version is this book is magnificent. Even without taking into consideration Gaiman's incredible ability to tell a story and masterful word craft, this book is fantastic. It ignites the imagination through it's complex and descriptive use of a litany of gods from across cultures, religions and eras. Since reading this book and hearing that HBO is planning a TV series based around it I haven't been able to stop thinking about what this book would look like visually. Since the series isn't likely to hit our screens for a few years these pictures by some amazing artists will fulfill that desire for now. Actually that do more justice to the source material than I could have imagined/hoped for! Take a peek at the rest of their amazing work by clicking through the links in the captions.
