[Comic Review] Sleepy Hollow #1

Sleepy Hollow #1Released by Zenescope, Sleepy Hollow is a retelling of the classic tale set within their “Grimm Universe.”

In Sleepy Hollow #1 we follow along with a budding university student named Craig Marsters. Everything seems to be going as planned, until naturally, a little wrench is thrown into the works.

Here is a universal tale of jocks versus geeks. The aspiring straight ‘A’ student is asked to tutor a failing, in both academics and extracurricular activities, jock. When things don’t go quite as the jock wants them, poor Craig is in for a world of hurt.

All in all, this issue was alright. The art wasn’t necessarily my style, but that isn’t enough in my opinion to hold it back. For a title that was meant to be “dark,” I felt the artwork was a little too crisp (and again, that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the art, because the team is talented).

And, the story was short, but just long enough to get you gripped. You feel for Craig, right up until the last panel the light of the train.

Rating: 7/10 Gingered Digits.

Reasoning: Good artwork, great concept, decent delivery, good character development.
