Earlier in the month, Diamond UK informed British retailers that they wouldn’t be able to get any copies of the American Gods comic by Neil Gaiman, P Craig Russell and Scott Hampton, published by Dark Horse, as the rights were held by Headline who, instead, would be publishing the comic as an original graphic novel.
Neil Gaiman heard about this on Bleeding Cool, and it was backed up by retailers who had been told the news from official sources.
However, it’s all change. It appears there has been plenty of discussion at elevated levels. And as of yesterday comic book retailers have been told that, actually, yes, British retailers can order American Gods, as Diamond UK let them know “Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is NOW available to the UK”
Which is nice.
