Starz has released a new poster for the upcoming American Gods television series based on Neil Gaiman’s book.

The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.

If you have read the book, you know how epic this series could be, and I’m hoping STARZ does the adaptation right.

The American Gods panel takes place on Friday, July 22, at 3:15 PM in room 6GCF.
