NYCC

At New York Comic-Con this weekend, Amazon dropped the first trailer for their upcoming adaptation of the Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett classic, Good Omens.

A release date is not currently set, aside from 2019, but if this trailer is any indication, then this should be yet another fantastic adaptation of a Gaiman novel.
