In one of the most anticipated digital series on Amazon Prime Video, Carnival Row is set to premiere this Friday starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne in the neo-Victorian fantasy television drama with fairies, humans and other monsters.
With Marc Guggenheim as executive producer and writer of multiple comics and a partnership with Legendary Pictures, it’s not a surprise that more stories will come in comic book fashion.
Legendary Comics released today two one-shot comic book companions available on comiXology that features stories about Rycroft Philostrate’s first cop assignment and Vignette’s joining a refugee group.
Both issues are available right now for free and $0.99 after September 4.
Here’s the synopsis for the one-shot books:
From the Dark follows Rycroft Philostrate as he adjusts to his life in The Burgue, and the memories of his former life intertwine with a mystery that will take him through the strange city streets that he now calls home. A recent bomb attack has only intensified the situation. Can he find the people responsible before there is another explosion? From the Dark was written by C.M. Landrus and Charles Velasquez-Witoksy, with the story by Travis Beacham, Marc Guggenheim, Kai Wu, Georgia Lee, Marc Bernadin and Stephanie Smith. Illustration by Harvey M. Tolibao with HMT Studios’ Tristan Jurolan and Jhun Mar Tadong Entico, with colors by HMT Studios’ Kevin Tolibao and Kevin Anthony de Castro.
Sparrowhawk features Vignette and her fellow Fae, who after finding their homeland under attack, must fight and sacrifice in order to reach safety. Mythical powers only count for so much, when the other side has them too. Will they find the refuge they are looking for or does an even better threat wait for them? Written by Jordan Crair, with story by Travis Beacham, Marc Guggenheim, Kai Wu, Georgia Lee, Marc Bernadin and Stephanie Smith. Art by Giorgia Sposito with colors by Triona Farrell.
These one-shot stories are somewhat unrelated to the overall story arc with Amazon Prime’s Carnival Row. They remain nice companion pieces if you want more after watching the television show.
