Grimm Fairy Tales presents Sleepy Hollow #3 Review

This horror story enters its third act as the vengeful ghost makes himself known, but is it a little too late for any significance?  Read on to find out.

The official description from Zenescope:

The Headless Horseman has returned and those who are responsible for his murder are in for a terrifying surprise.  As the guilt continues to torture Ty for his part in his friend’s murder, he starts seeing things that may or may not be there.  Meanwhile, Craig’s headless body has returned to seek his vengeance and he will stop at nothing to get it!

From the minds of Ralph Tedesco, Joe Brusha and Raven Gregory, written by Dan Wickline (30 Days of Night), this is one horror series you do not want to miss!

When approaching any classical narrative in a contemporary interpretation it can be difficult to strike a proverbial balance between the past and the present world.  Usually what occurs is the people behind it make a decision and more than likely what arrives will be a little lopsided.  This is true here, but trust me when I say the creative team picked the right stuff to use in their rendition.

Dan Wickline delivers a more than competent script that gives the book some very solid footing in its latest outing.  From the first page to the cliffhanger what we have here is a tale that embraces some slasher tendencies while still attempting to make a valid point.  It’s not going to win any literary awards but the story had me cheering when the Horseman arrived, so in my humble opinion the author was doing more than enough right to make the whole of the narrative work.

The art by AC Osorio is once again quirky and sensible as it sets the mood for this addictive tale.  There are moments where the design sense yields some amazing shots but there were a few times where it was held back from some lackluster renditions.  Overall though the work on display will keep readers engaged.

Grimm Fairy Tales presents Sleepy Hollow #3 is another solid entry that easily earns a recommendation.
