The Kickstarter for a graphic novel of GOOD OMENS has smashed it’s kickstarter target. The book, by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, and illustrated and adapted by Colleen Doran met it’s target of £25,000 in ten minutes, and is currently sitting at £905,556!
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman began life almost forty years ago as an idea that grew legs (and scales and rapidly wings) and went on to be published in 1990. The story follows the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley as they attempt to avoid the impending Apocalypse on the horizon. There’s also the small matter of a missing Antichrist…
Good Omens has been reprinted many, many times and translated into over forty languages across the world. It has also been adapted for audio (twice!) and most-recently television, with seasons 1 & 2 now available on Amazon Prime Video. But it has never been a graphic novel… until now.
We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Colleen Doran, the multi-award-winning illustrator and long-term collaborator with Neil on projects such as Chivalry, The Sandman, and Snow, Glass, Apples. She has also worked on other hugely prestigious titles including Wonder Woman, Amazing Spiderman, Lucifer, Walt Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and created all the art for Stan Lee’s autobiography.
Colleen is not only a world-class artist but she has a unique relationship with, and understanding of, the very special sensibility of Terry and Neil’s work. You only have to look at the many, many sticky notes in her own edition of the book in the project video to see the special place the story has in her heart.
