Boom! October Releases – Bring on Sleepy Hollow!

As always, an interesting assortment of titles coming from Boom! in October. The one I am anticipating the most is the new Sleepy Hollow series. Such a good show, the comic holds a lot of promise to be a worthy spin-off.

memetic

WHY WE LOVE IT: After launching James Tynion IV’s THE WOODS to much acclaim, we were eager to see what other ideas he had. When James—one of our favorite new voices in comics—pitched us MEMETIC as a tale of the apocalypse in three parts, we were sold!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: MEMETIC is truly an event comic—three oversized, 48-page issues detailing the end of the world over the course of three days, and a wholly unique take on the disaster genre. Much like his work on THE WOODS, James Tynion IV and fantastic newcomer Eryk Donovan (THE HOUSE IN THE WALL) will bring horror to a whole new generation and fans of J-horror films like UZUMAKI and THE RING.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: A Meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then spreads throughout multiple persons and potentially entire societies. Richard Dawkins suggests a meme’s success comes from its effectiveness to the host. But history shows that destructive memes can spread just as rapidly through society. MEMETIC shows the progression of a weaponized meme that leads to the utter annihilation of the human race within 72 hours. The root of this apocalypse is a single image on the internet, a “meme” in the popular sense. A meme that changes everything.

Author: Marguerite Bennett
Artist: Jorge Coelho
Cover Artists: A: Phil Noto B: Jorge Coelho (INCENTIVE)

Boom! October Releases - Bring on Sleepy Hollow!

WHY WE LOVE IT: As fans of the SLEEPY HOLLOW television series (now entering its second season on Fox), we knew we had to make a comic just as haunting, engaging and visually gorgeous as the show itself. Featuring multi-layered characters, intense visuals, and creepy storylines, SLEEPY HOLLOW is primed for comics.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: One of the most exciting young writers working today, Scott Snyder
protégé Marguerite Bennett is currently writing Archaia’s BUTTERFLY and has worked on DC’s LOBO, SUPERMAN: LOIS LANE, and BATMAN: JOKER’S DAUGHTER. Even if you don’t watch the show, SLEEPY HOLLOW is perfect for fans of SUPERNATURAL. Includes all-new back-up stories from Noelle Stevenson (LUMBERJANES).
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: 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 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…
