The battle against evil is raging once again in the new season of Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, though some untold stories are set to play out later this month in the show’s official comic. Want a sneak peek?
The Sleepy Hollow comics, published by Boom! Studios, will follow the two witnesses Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills, played by Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, respectively, on the hit Fox supernatural action series.
Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first few pages from the comic, the first issue of which was written by Marguerite Bennett and illustrated by Jorge Coelho, with a cover by Phil Noto. The publisher will have the new run on display at New York Comic-Con, along with some nifty variant covers.
Tie-in comics seem to be all the rage these days, but with a franchise like this, we believe it could make for a compelling series. The TV series itself basically plays like a WTF-style comic book with big twists and crazy storylines. Take away the budget constraints of television and free up the writers to go even nuttier? Yeah, we’ll bite.
The first issue is set to hit comic store shelves Oct. 15. Do you plan on checking out the continued adventures of Ichabod and Abbie?
