As we wrap up 2021 we are still waiting for the second season of Prime Video’s Carnival Row. The neo-noir Victorian fantasy hit series stars Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne. No doubt that series writers C.M. Landrus, Charles Valasquez-Witosky, and Jordan Crair have brought us quite the fantastical world where humans and Fae beings co-exist. It is rich with interesting characters and stories that the series may not have time for.
With that in mind, Legendary Comics has announced the official graphic novel, Tales of Carnival Row. It will be bringing fans new adventures from the world of Carnival Row. Writer George Mann along with the series writers listed above have created stories that will shine a light on some of the most popular characters in the series. The artwork will be handled by Magda Price, Giorgia Sposito, Gus Storms, Harvey M. Tolibao, and Ashley A. Woods. The cover that is shown below is by ZID with a variant cover by Mike Collins.
Here is a description of the graphic novel provided by Legendary Pictures
In the dark and magical world of Carnival Row, there are many stories to be told. Readers can explore the Burgue, where war-weary humans and Fae strike an uneasy peace and eke out a meager coexistence in this new anthology graphic novel. Fans can take a closer look at the myths and half-truths surrounding their favorite characters. Including Philo, Vignette, Millworthy, Agreus, Tourmaline, and Aisling.
“Carnival Row is such a rich world with so many interesting characters,” said Robert Napton, senior vice president of Legendary Comics. “The Row itself is a setting so full of mystery and lore, so it was fun to delve into some of the nooks and crannies in an anthology format to see what we might find.”
“Stepping onto Carnival Row and being given the chance to walk a few steps in the boots of some of these fantastic characters was a real joy,” said the graphic novel’s writer, George Mann. “The setting is so vivid and gritty. But with an undercurrent of delicious magic and folklore that makes it all the more compelling. Crafting new tales for these characters alongside a host of talented artists was a huge amount of fun.”
It will be exciting to dive in further into the world of Carnival Row. While the second season still is ways away, you can pre-order the graphic novel from Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Indie Bound, and ComicShopLocator.com. It is scheduled to hit retailers on July 26th, 2022. You can also revisit the world of Carnival Row on Prime Video.
