The more I hear about the upcoming Disney+ streaming service, the more I am convinced that it will be a day one subscription for me.

I once said that there was never a better time to be a fan of comic books and the vivid stories that come from them and are now finding themselves to the big and small screen. The CW Entertainment network has a half dozen DC Comics superhero shows and now a popular Dark Horse Comics title “American Gods” is getting a second season for its tales. The show is based on the novel by the great Neil Gaiman and the first official trailer for this new season is down below. I’ve also added some premise and the massive casting from last season for those who might only just be learning about the series. Take a look.

PiercingMetal Thoughts:
I’ve already stated that I am not sure about catching this one right away but the DVR allows for easy binge watching. Have any of you readers sunk your teeth into the original novel at all? I know there is a comic book hitting the stands as well and perhaps I will add that to our narratives as well in the comic book review area. Tell me below if you will be watching. I’d like to hear.
