Bryan Fuller Reveals First Concept Art For 'American Gods'

On the heels of the series greenlight, co-showrunner Bryan Fuller has revealed the first stunning concept art from the upcoming Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "American Gods."

Like the acclaimed 2001 fantasy novel, the series follows an ex-convict named Shadow Moon who, upon early release from prison after his wife is killed in a car crash, is hired to be the bodyguard of a mysterious con man named Wednesday. However, it’s soon revealed that Wednesday is an incarnation of All-Father Odin, who’s traveling America recruiting his fellow forgotten deities to wage an epic battle against the new American gods — manifestations of modern life and technology, like Internet, media and credit cards.

The concept art, by production illustrator Jim Carson, depicts the Bone Orchard from Shadow's dream. Fuller ("Hannibal") revealed last month that the producers had also been working with illustrators on designs for Jack’s Crocodile Bar and Zorya's rooftop.

Fuller also tweeted an "American Gods" poster created by Nicolas Delort that, while certainly beautiful, isn't for the television series (it's from 2011).

"American Gods" is expected to premiere in late 2016.
