A First Look at Titan’s PENNY DREADFUL Sequel Comic

A First Look at Titan’s PENNY DREADFUL Sequel Comic

Last year, Penny Dreadful came to a pretty abrupt end on Showtime after only three seasons. But there are still more horror stories to be told in that era, and Penny Dreadful is set to return as an ongoing comic book miniseries from Titan Comics.

Chris King, the former co-producer of the program, is writing the comic book sequel series, Penny Dreadful: The Awakening, with artist Jesús Hervás. Thus far, most of the story details are still under wraps, but it does look like Ethan Chandler isn’t quite over the love his life, six months after the show ended.

According to Titan Comics “this new comic sees Ethan Chandler unable to move on. As he searches desperately for meaning in a world without Vanessa, ancient words echo across the centuries, and he is called on once again to take up arms against the creatures crawling out of the night!”

Considering that both Vanessa and Lily are on the photo covers for Penny Dreadful: The Awakening #1, it may indicate that both women will still have a role to play in the story even though Vanessa is clearly dead after the events of the third season finale. You can find the rest of the covers by  Stephen Mooney, Rob Davis, Shane Pierce, and Louie De Martinis in our galley below.

Penny Dreadful: The Awakening #1 will be released on Wednesday, April 5.
