Ahead of Legendary’s release of the upcoming graphic novel Head Wounds: Sparrow, Barnes & Noble Union Square in New York City is hosting a launch event on Monday, October 17!
Developed by Jason Spire and award-winning actor Oscar Isaac, Head Wounds: Sparrow is created by Bob Johnson, and the story comes from Johnson and John Alvey. The book was 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 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?”
Isaac, Alvey, and Johnson will all be on-site for the launch event on Monday at 7 p.m. ET, tickets for which include admission to the event space and a pre-signed copy of Head Wounds: Sparrow. Tickets are limited, so make sure to get yours now! (Go here for more information on the event.)
Head Wounds: Sparrow will officially release on Tuesday, October 18.
Isaac attended New York Comic Con this past weekend for his first ever spotlight panel, during which he was joined on stage by Ward and Buccellato to discuss their graphic novel. In case you missed it, check out our photos from the panel here.
