How to Talk to Girls at Parties

Neil Gaiman‘s comic book How to Talk to Girl at Parties is a fun read. It’s also a very short read. If adapted faithfully, it’d probably be a great short film. The director behind Rabbit Hole and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, John Cameron Mitchell, had the freedom of adapting the story into a narrative feature film. He got to take the kernel of a story where he wanted to, and where he went with it looks like a blast.

‘American Gods’ Clip: Meet Mr. Mr. Nancy

Mr. Nancy American Gods

It seems like most of us who watched American Gods this past Sunday are already finding ourselves engrossed in the ambitious Starz series. With the Neil Gaiman adaptation, co-creators Bryan Fuller and Michael Green took their time introducing Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), and Bilquis (Yetide Badaki) in a character-driven and atmospheric pilot. They got fantastic introductions – giving us a clear sense of who they are, not so much what they want.

On the next episode of American Gods, the brewing war between the old gods and the new may get more attention, but there’s still a few key new players to introduce, such as Mr. Nancy/Anansi, played by Orlando Jones. Below, you can watch his introduction in a new American Gods clip.

american gods spinoff

American Gods only premiered on Starz last night, but it has already been met with critical acclaim and buzz. And showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are now setting their eyes on adapting another Neil Gaiman book. Or two.

Fuller and Green are mulling a spin-off of American Gods featuring Orlando Jones‘ African trickster god Anansi, who was the subject of Gaiman’s 2005 follow-up, Anansi Boys. While expanding the world of American Gods — in which the old and new gods walk and war among us — is tempting to Fuller and Green, they’re also circling an even juicier and surreal world to explore: that of Gaiman’s groundbreaking graphic novel The Sandman.

good omens miniseries

Years ago, director/genius Terry Gilliam set out to adapt Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s brilliant novel Good Omens into a feature film starring Robin Williams and Johnny Depp. It never came to pass. Other versions, including a television adaptation by Terry Jones, briefly appeared before vanishing again. But good things sometimes come to those who wait and Amazon and BBC Studios are teaming up to make a Good Omens miniseries for 2018, with Gaiman himself writing every script and serving as showrunner.

American Gods director

This year, something doesn’t feel quite right with Comic-Con. That’s true for a variety of reasons, but it’s mainly because Hannibal is no longer making appearances. A room packed with the enthusiasm of a large pack of Fannibals was always a treat. Hannibal may be off the air and out of Comic-Con, but that’s not stopping Bryan Fuller from attending. Yesterday, he brought with him his new show, American Gods (co-created by Michael Green).

Below, watch the American Gods trailer.
