The second season of Sleepy Hollow is all set to debut on September 22nd and Boom! Studios is hoping to capitalize on the demand. The comic book company is releasing a series of digital shorts that focuses on the central characters prologues.
The first two prologues are already online, via the show’s Facebook page and BOOM!’s Tumblr page, and center around Ichabod Crane and Jenny Mills. Both shorts are written by Bad Robot’s Mike Johnson, with art by Matias Bergara, and take place prior to the first season — a long time prior, in Ichabod’s case.
There are five digital shorts planned and in the near future they will be repackaged and sold online in a graphic novel format. I think it is very interesting that Boom! decided to engage in digital comic shorts. Something like this is rarely done in the comic book industry, and most of the time they do full digital editions, that take longer to produce.
