I know it feels like a lifetime ago in the timewarp that is 2017, but in case you’ve forgotten: Neil Gaiman is adapting his beloved novel Good Omens (co-written by legend Terry Pratchett) into an Amazon/BBC miniseries. It’ll star Michael Sheen and David Tennant. It’s a comedy about the apocalypse, and frankly I welcome the opportunity to actually laugh at the end of the world, as opposed to sitting in numb fear like I do now.

Anyway, here’s a picture of the man himself hoisting a flaming sword because fuck it, let’s take our little pleasures where we can. You’re welcome.

Show running privilege: when you get to play with the flaming sword.

The series should arrive sometime in 2019, so let’s hope he plans on continuing to share these little lifelines over the next year+ to see us through.
