Earlier this week, Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac was in virtual attendance at Publishers Weekly’s U.S. Book Show, an online conference presenting keynote speakers; editor and author panels; and library, bookselling, and industry programming. As a keynote speaker, Isaac was there to discuss Head Wounds: Sparrow, an upcoming graphic novel that he’s developing alongside Jason Spire for Legendary Comics.

Watch Isaac’s conversation with Heidi MacDonald, editor-in-chief of and co-host of the podcast More to Come, below.

Head Wounds: Sparrow comes from creator Robert Johnson with a story by John Alvey and Johnson, and it’s written by Brian Buccellato with art by Christian Ward. 

“Tangled up in the battle between Good and Evil, a crooked Louisiana detective with a higher purpose must psychically suffer the wounds of those he’s sworn to protect until he brings their assailants to justice. No one would call Leo a good person — much less a good cop. But when his best friend is shot in front of him, he wakes up with a hole in his own head that only he can see, and a host of mysterious strangers calling on him for action. Most people go about their daily lives ignoring or unable to see the divine battle for Good and Evil raging around them, but it has just become very real for Leo. As angels and demons vie for the fate of humanity, he must choose a side or risk seeing everyone and everything he has ever known destroyed as the stakes get higher and higher. As Leo sees the true faces of the people around him he must decide — will he do what’s best for him alone, or follow a higher purpose?”

Head Wounds: Sparrow will be available in bookstores and online on August 9.
