So, having read the book, seeing it as a graphic novel intrigued me, as comic books always have. Second time around I understand more. This first part introduces immigrant gods that came over with their believers, nearly forgotten now, and besieged by malignant modern gods, spawned by obsessive computer glitz.

Shadow Moon, fresh from prison, newly widowed, newly employed by enigmatic Mr. Wednesday, goes along on the quest to right some terrible wrongs.

Various artists gloriously illustrate several tales, and Shadow's story. Though I know what's coming I can't wait for the second volume.
