A Spooky Legend Comes To Life In Queer YA OGN ‘Hollow’ From Lumberjanes Co-Creator
by Brendan M. Allen
BOOM! Studios revealed a new look at the brand new original graphic novel, Hollow. From Shannon Watters, the co-creator of Lumberjanes, co-writer Branden Boyer-White, artist Berenice Nelle, and colorists Kaitlyn Musto, Kieran Quigley, and Gonçalo Lopes, comes a supernatural queer romance and adventure set in the infamous town of Sleepy Hollow, available in September 2022.
Isabel “Izzy” Crane and her family have just relocated to Sleepy Hollow, the town made famous by—and obsessed with—Washington Irving’s legend of the Headless Horseman. But city slicker-skeptic Izzy has no time for superstition as she navigates life at a new address, a new school, and, with any luck, new friends. Ghost stories aren’t real, after all….
Then Izzy is pulled into the orbit of the town’s teen royalty, Vicky Van Tassel (yes, that Van Tassel) and loveable varsity-level prankster Croc Byun. Vicky’s weariness with her family connection to the legend turns to terror when the trio begins to be haunted by the Horseman himself, uncovering a curse set on destroying the Van Tassel line. Now, they have only until Halloween night to break it—meaning it’s a totally inconvenient time for Izzy to develop a massive crush on the enigmatic Vicky.
Can Izzy’s practical nature help her face the unknown—or only trip her up? As the calendar runs down to the 31st, Izzy will have to use all of her wits and work with her friends to save Vicky and uncover the mystery of the legendary Horseman of Sleepy Hollow—before it’s too late.
Print copies of Hollow will be available for sale on September 28, 2022 at local comic book shops and October 4, 2022 at bookstores.
