Good Omens News

Recently announced - Good Omens Season 2 will be launched on Prime Video on July 28 (or possibly July 29 for Australia, due to time zones). Given that Season 1 was based on the book, we have no idea what's coming for this second season - apart from more goodness (and evilness) from Aziraphale and Crowley.

Also coming soon is Good Omens: An Ineffable Card Game from Renegade Game Studios. The only information we have tells us 3 versions (different components, same game play) will be available from different retailers in the US, but no information has been given about an international release as yet.

Good Omens Graphic Novel
And just announced today - Dunmanifestin and the Terry Pratchett Estate will be launching a Kickstarter for Good Omens: The Official (and ineffable) Graphic Novel very soon. Click here to sign up to be notified when it is launched.

And don't forget about Nullus Anxietas 9...

The Australian Discworld Convention is back! Join us for a fun weekend in deepest darkest Uberwald! It will be on from 12-14 July, 2024 - Grand Chancellor Hotel, Adelaide
