Fans of Sleepy Hollow, rejoice! A new comic is coming your way, courtesy of Marguerite Bennett and Jorge Coelho (his cover above). And take heed, she’s a fan:
Did you look to other TV tie-in comics for ideas of what to do with “Sleepy Hollow?”
I’m afraid I did not! Most of the pitches I submitted, and indeed the ones that were chosen, all stemmed from fangirl love. Some aspects of each script arose while I was watching the show, wondering if these threads were things the writers had set down, while others were things I was dying to see explored, though I doubted the thrilling pace of the show might ever have the chance to pause over them. My research began as rewatching the show and taking notes as diligently and ferociously as though I were back in grad school, and ended deep in history books about the Revolutionary War.
It sounds like you’ve got a pretty good number of ideas for future “Sleepy Hollow” stories bubbling about.
Ha! 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. It’s a brilliant, quirky, scary, fun show, and we’re fighting to live up to it every minute, in every way. I hope y’all love it as much as we do.
