Good Omens

Neil Gaiman was a busy guy this weekend. Not only did American Gods have a panel, but so did Good Omens, the Amazon program based on the novel he wrote with Terry Pratchett. New York Comic-Con gave us some great photo opportunities as well as the first real trailer for the Amazon Prime show, showcasing Michael Sheen as Aziraphale and David Tennant as Crowley. Armageddon is in full swing and this angel and demon, respectively, team up to try and stop it. The Horsemen ride, the Anti-Christ is walking the earth, and our only hope is two winged gentleman who isn’t sure they can even slow it down. Are you ready for the end times?

Fortunately, for fans and pretty much everyone else who appreciates amazing fantasy fiction, Amazon greenlit the series, which is set to premiere sometime in 2018.
