On the eve of the upcoming premiere of the second season of Fox television series Sleepy Hollow, BOOM! Studios announced this week they will be releasing a tie-in comic series based on the show. The comic will include the regular cast of characters found within the popular television series as well as new original characters and story lines. Featuring the creative team of writer Marguerite Bennett (Butterfly, Batman: Joker’s Daughter) and artist Jorge Coelho (Polarity) the comic mini-series will have a limited run of four issues. According to the official press release from BOOM!, the following is the synopsis for issue #1:
After dying on the battlefield during the Revolutionary War, Ichabod Crane awakes in present-day Sleepy Hollow, New York. His resurrection is tied to the reappearance of the Headless Horseman, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Realizing it is his mission to help stop the end of the world, Ichabod teams with the SHPD’s Lt. Abbie Mills to meet each evil threat head-on. When minor miracles start to sweep the town, they’re glad something good seems to be happening for once. No decapitations, no headless horseman, no worries, right? But as one by one the miracles start to backfire, more and more violently, Abbie and Ichabod must find time between saving the world to save the citizens of Sleepy Hollow.
The first issue of Sleepy Hollow is set to hit comic stands (appropriately) on October 15.
