Colleen Doran has adapted several of Neil Gaiman’s prose stories into comics in recent years, including the Eisner-nominated Chivalry and the Eisner-winning Snow, Glass, Apples. But now she’s turning her attention to a Gaiman work of Biblical proportions.
Teased by both Doran and Gaiman on social media, Doran will next adapt Good Omens, the 1990 novel Gaiman co-wrote with Terry Pratchett about a young antichrist and the end of the world.
The Terry Pratchett will crowdfund the project via Kickstarter; you can check out the campaign page and sign up to be notified when it goes live.
No official date for the launch of the campaign has been revealed, beyond “this summer.”
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch is the story of the antichrist being born, and the angel and demon who work together to try and prevent the end of the world. It was adapted into a six-episode television show by Amazon and the BBC and released in 2019, with a second season slated to arrive at the end of July.
Update: Doran answered several questions about the project on Tumblr.
