Yesterday evening, Barnes & Noble Union Square in New York City held a special launch event for Legendary’s upcoming graphic novel, Head Wounds: Sparrow (which is now available for purchase online and in stores).
Developed by Jason Spire and award-winning actor Oscar Isaac for his production company Mad Gene Media, 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, Johnson, and Alvey took to the stage at the launch event for an in-depth conversation about the graphic novel and its creation process.
