Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3772 - It is the ninth day of the new year... And I'm still reviewing publications that have come in from Zenescope Entertainment this past year!
I'm really into this new series titled 'Grimm Fairy Tales Presents... Sleepy Hollow', a four issue mini-series.
I'm only read three of the four issues... But if the quality of the fourth issue matches the quality of the first three issues, then this will be a good candidate for compilation into a trade paperback, (TPB).
What's this story arc about?
"In the small town of Tarry Town, New York the story of the headless horseman of Sleepy Hollow has become something of Myth and Legend. A legend that is about to become all too real. When a prank goes deadly wrong those responsible will learn the truth behind the legend as the Headless Horseman returns to exact a horrifying revenge that none will ever forget. From the writer of Salem's Daughter: The haunting comes a tale of horror and terror that will leave you on the edge of your seats. Hold on to your hats...and your head. "
There are a lot of credits to be found for this mini-series:
Created and Story by: Joe Brusha, Ralph Tedesco, Raven Gregory.
Written by Dan Wickline.
Pencils by: AC Osorio
Colors by Chandran Ponnusamy.
Letters by Jim Campbell.
Edited by Matt Rogers.
And that's just for issue #1!
I found that this creation truly inter-mingled the Revolutionary War story of 'Sleepy Hollow' with today.
Very interesting on how the past coincides with the current time.
Yes, the slicing of heads is kind of horrific... But it does fit the theme of this four issue series, and isn't over the top in presenting it to the reader.
I'm actually looking forward to reading the fourth, and final, issue of this mini-series!
You might look for this series at your LCBS on Wednesday when you go there to pick up your weekly comic book picks...
I'm giving this TPB a Very Fine / Near Mint (VF/NM) 9.0 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale.
Plus, while you are at the web site, check out the other series that Zenescope has published this past year, and the years before.
My own earlier review blogs on several of those publications can be found at this link, as Zenescope Entertainment does have several good series for your reading pleasure. As I'm sure you can see from the past week worth of blogs I have posted!
