With Halloween ComicFest around the corner, many horror and mystery comics are coming to your local shop's shelf. Announced today in a CBR exclusive, we learned that "Edward Scissorhands" is getting the first ever graphic treatment in a five issue miniseries written by cartoonist Kate Leth, recently announced as the writer of BOOM! Studios' "Fraggle Rock," and illustrated by Drew Rausch, whose past credits include SLG Publishing's "Eldritch!"
It's an all-new adventure revisiting Edward Scissorhands two decades after the end of the fan-favorite movie! In castle just outside a sleepy suburban town, a brilliant inventor created Edward Scissorhands…but left him tragically unfinished. Two generations of exile have left Edward digging through abandoned experiments, but once he wakes up a creature left buried, he discovers he isn't the only one missing a vital piece. As Edward tries to fix a grave mistake, he comes face to face with a teenage girl who was sure he was only myth... despite the stories her grandmother told her, about the man she could never touch.
There's been a growing success with other comic titles getting the continuation treatment, and I for one am super excited that Kate Leth has agreed to give us more of the melancholy man with hands made of scissors. - TD
