It’s a huge week for Penny Dreadful fans! This Wednesday April 5, 2017, sees the release of Titan Comics’ highly-anticipated PENNY DREADFUL: THE AWAKING #1 – set six months after the shocking events of the Penny Dreadful season three TV finale.
Written by Penny Dreadful TV series Co-Executive Producer Chris King, with art by Jesús Hervás (Sons of Anarchy), this new comic sees Ethan Chandler unable to move on. As he searches desperately for meaning in a world without Vanessa, ancient words echo across the centuries, and he is called on once again to take up arms against the creatures crawling out of the night!
Issue #1 comes with some great covers to collect including two connecting photo covers featuring Vanessa (Eva Green) and Lily (Billy Piper), and art covers from Stephen Mooney, Rob Davis, Shane Pierce & Louie De Martinis. Plus, look out for a special Fried Pie variant cover in Books-A-Million stores from series artist, Jesús Hervás.
To support the comic launch, Penny Dreadful TV series Co-Executive Producer Chris King will be signing copies of PENNY DREADFUL: THE AWAKING #1 at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles (7522 W Sunset Blvd, LA, California) on April 5 at 6PM.
