A How-To Guide on How to Get The SLEEPY HOLLOW Comics

Can’t get enough Sleepy Hollow, Sleepyheads! We know how you feel. Season 2 can’t come quick enough!

If you want to make sure you get the SLEEPY HOLLOW comics, written by Marguerite Bennett, art by Jorge Coelho and featuring shorts by Noelle Stevenson, when it comes out October, just follow this handy guide:

  1. Print out the pre-order form above.

    Pre-ordering 
    a comic lets your local comic shop know you WANT, I mean, NEED, this comic and that they should make sure their shop carries enough SLEEPY HOLLOW comics.

  2. Find a local comic shop in your area.

    Drop by the shop, locate a member of the staff and present them with your SLEEPY HOLLOW pre-order form! Providing them the form by September 22 (the day Season 2 premieres) guarantees a copy for you (or many copies for you and your friends)!

  3. Welcome to the world of comics!

  4. Or you can pre-order and subscribe directly from the BOOM! Webstore here!

  5. If you’re a digital reader, there’s no pre-ordering necessary! Head to comiXology the day Sleepy Hollow #1 comes out (October 15) and purchase directly to your tablet! You can subscribe to the series and ensure you don’t miss an issue!

Season 2 of Sleepy Hollow premieres on FOX September 22nd! Watch Sleepy Hollow, read comics (October 15), don’t lose your heads! Easy, right?

The biggest thing I’ve taken away from this project is something I’ll never be able to prove, but I’m convinced to my core: The lack of such a database is intentional. No government—not the federal government, and not the thousands of municipalities that give their police forces license to use deadly force—wants you to know how many people it kills and why.

It’s the only conclusion that can be drawn from the evidence. What evidence? In attempting to collect this information, I was lied to and delayed by the FBI, even when I was only trying to find out the addresses of police departments to make public records requests. The government collects millions of bits of data annually about law enforcement in its Uniform Crime Report, but it doesn’t collect information about the most consequential act a law enforcer can do.

I’ve been lied to and delayed by state, county and local law enforcement agencies—almost every time. They’ve blatantly broken public records laws, and then thumbed their authoritarian noses at the temerity of a citizen asking for information that might embarrass the agency. And these are the people in charge of enforcing the law.

If any of you ladies (or gents) are looking for obscure cosplay ideas, I reckon Wonder Woman (yes, Wonder Woman), The Invisible Woman (do you see a trend of pilfering here?) and Thief Catcher from “The Heroic Trio” would be an amazing idea.

Granted, nobody would know who the fuck you were, but at least you’d look awesome.
