The opening title sequence for "American Gods" is here and it's glorious. The adaptation of the Neil Gaiman novel debuts on Starz on April 30 and this opening gives us a small taste of what to expect.

Among the gods glimpsed are Jesus, Buddha, and Ganesha, as well as drugs, lots of drugs.

Co-showrunners and executive producers Bryan Fuller and Michael Green said via press release, "Is it strange to want action figures from a main title sequence? Crucified astronauts, neon cowboys and S&M centaurs, we bow to Elastic [they created the titles] and their spectacular vision. A totem of godly visions we didn't know we needed to worship until they showed us the light with this clarion call to the 'American Gods.'"

The series stars Ian McShane, Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning, Pablo Schreiber, Crispin Glover, Orlando Jones, Gillian Anderson, Kristin Chenoweth, Jonathan Tucker and Cloris Leachman.
