Penny Dreadful Co-Executive Producer Chris King and illustrator Jesús Hervás (Sons of Anarchy) will bring the series back to life in comics in early 2017.For those unfamilair with the show, it features classic characters from Victorian gothic literature and a host of brand-new characters including: Vanessa Ives, Sir Malcolm Murray, Frankenstein’s Monster, Sembene and Mina Harker.
Under license by CBS Consumer Products, Titan Comics will continue the story directly after the devastating events of Penny Dreadful’s season three TV finale. The comic series will take place six months after the ending of the TV show’s final season. Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) finds himself 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.
Titan’s new comic series expands upon their previous smash-hit Penny Dreadful comics. The critically acclaimed prequel comic, which explored the events and mysteries untouched by the TV show, sold out of its debut issue and garnered rave reviews from critics (including us).
Titan’s new Penny Dreadful comic series is set to hit stores and digital platforms early 2017.
