Sleepy Hollow Comic Issue #1 to Hit Shops October 15th

 

As was teased last week, BOOM! Studios will be releasing comics based on Sleepy Hollow, with artwork by Jorge Coelho. ComicBookResources.com has now posted a story with additional details on the 4 issue mini-series, with issue #1 being available in stores on October 15th. The series will be written by Marguerite Bennett, who has been a fan of the show since a happenstance viewing of the pilot at SDCC last year. Cover artwork for issue #1 above, is by Phil Noto, and Noelle Stevens will illustrate and write back up stories for the series.

Details of the actual stories weren't revealed, but Bennett says she will build on bits and pieces from the TV episodes, and all our favorite characters will be included. She told CBR, "The comics take place at different parts of the series. The first two comics are each standalone, self-contained single issues, while the third and fourth will be our two-part finale, so to speak. The first issue takes place early in the season and is a story of magic, the second is in the middle and is a story of myth, and the third and fourth are close to the end, and are the story of a machine."

If all goes well, we may get additional comics, as Bennett adds, "I'd write Ichabod and Abbie through seven years of Witnessing, if they'd let me, and I'd be grateful every minute of it."

New Characters On Their Way to Sleepy Hollow

Two new characters will be coming to Sleepy Hollow in season 2. The first will be an ex-flame of Ichabod's from England named Mary Wells, played by Heather Lind (above, who, interestingly, is also in the cast of Revolutionary War drama,Turn).  "While at first pleasant and sweet, Mary has a darker side — and will prove to be flighty, moody and prone to fits of extreme jealousy," reports Michael Ausiello of TVLine. The character will make her first appearance in episode 5, which they are currently shooting in Wilmington, NC.

Mitt Mitovich, with TVLine as well, also reported some casting scoop. In episode 6, we'll meet Joe, the late Sheriff Corbin's son, "a well-built, all-American Marine carrying a big chip on his shoulder."  We'll have to see what he has to say about Ichabod living at his father's cabin.

Don't forget that the FOX Summer Binge is on, and the first five episodes of season 1 of Sleepy Hollow are available for a very limited time with FOX On Demand, on FOX.com, and with the FOXNOW app. Watch them while you can! Additional episodes will be made available each week.
