Are you a fan of Sleepy Hollow? Do you find yourself going through withdrawal now that Season Two is over and the comic mini-series is complete? Well, BOOM! Studios has good news for you. A stand-alone issue will now accompany the four-issue Sleepy Hollow miniseries that tied into Fox’s hit TV Show. Written by Mike Johnson (Supergirl) and illustrated by Sons of Anarchy artist Matías Bergara, the one shot will be entitled Sleepy Hollow: Origins, and will include five short stories. For those of you who don’t know, writer Mike Johnson worked closely with writers of the show, so the stories featured in this issue are considered officially part of the canon.
The stories will focus on the history of several characters from the TV series, including Ichabod Crane, Detective Abbie Mills, Jenny Mills, Henry Parrish, and the Hessian. Fans will get to discover Abbie’s first days on the job, Jenny’s time in an institution, and how Ichabod turned his back on King and Country. They’ll also learn how Henry was born as one of the Horseman of the Apocalypse, and relive the Hessian’s life as Abraham.
Every hardcore TV show fan goes through some kind of withdrawal when a season of their favorite show ends. The fact that BOOM! Studios is providing readers with something like this is fantastic. I love that it ties into the TV show as well. The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is March 16th. Sleepy Hollow: Origins will be released on April 8th.
