It’s been almost a month since we told you that Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills would be continuing their ‘Sleepy Hollow‘ first season adventures in comic form and now we’ve got the first six pages of issue #1 to share with you! It not only looks as if BOOM! Studios did a great job at rendering the characters but were able to bring their on screen personalities to life quite well in print as well.
You can just feel the old fashioned nature that Ichabod embodies and his ability to quickly adapt to how times have changed from the first page that he’s on.
The first issue that we are previewing here was written by Marguerite Bennett, illustrated by Jorge Coelho, and has a cover that was designed by Phil Noto. You can pick it up on October 15th, 2014 at your local comic shop and if you are a fan of the series might just be considering doing just that after reading these pages. Honestly, you can practically hear the banter in Crane and Mills’ voices when reading them here.
Looking at the cover to the left it clearly looks like we’ve be racing right back into the middle of the headless horsemen story arc though if this does take place during the first season we’ll still most likely be at a point where our two witnesses don’t yet know who he is.
The synopsis for the first issue is as follows:
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…
You can check out the first 6 pages of the first issue below:
With none of the preview issues actually showing off the Headless Horseman, I suspect he won’t be making an appearance until near the end of the first issue as a bonus surprise. In fact, he may not even show up until the second or third issue. It wouldn’t be the first time that a comic cover is completely misleading about what you will end up actually finding inside.
Are you a fan of ‘Sleepy Hollow’ and plan on checking out the comic to find out more of the world that we’ve been shown so far? What about the previews either grabs your attention or is making you second guess checking out the comic? Share your thoughts below!
