Legendary Comics and Oscar Isaac Reveal Head Wounds: Sparrow At SDCC

This sounds great.


Legendary Comics teams with Oscar Isaac for
HEAD WOUNDS: SPARROW, a new original supernatural noir
graphic novel set for early 2021
LOS ANGELES, July 23, 2020 – At today’s Comic-Con@Home panel, Legendary Comics
announced a thrilling new original graphic novel, Head Wounds: Sparrow, from creator
Bob Johnson, with story by John Alvey, and developed by Oscar Isaac (Show Me A Hero;
the Star Wars franchise; Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming Dune) for his production
company Mad Gene, and Jason Spire, available in stores and online in Early 2021. Leo
Guidry is a bad person and an even worse cop. When he suffers a psychic head wound,
his life on the edge slips into spiritual warfare. In a landscape of angels, devils,
and everything in between, can a person utterly devoid of empathy find a way to
overcome the forces of darkness that have infiltrated his reality? This is the world
of Head Wounds: Sparrow.
During the panel, the creative team—including childhood friends Isaac, Johnson, and
Alvey—discussed the deeply personal origin of the Head Wounds story. When diagnosed
with stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma and as a way to cope, Johnson turned to his
passion of writing and created the character of Leo. Inspired by a dream, Johnson
conceived the supernatural affliction that haunts Leo throughout the story and
forces him to face his own past trauma and lack of empathy. Head Wounds features an
original world with compelling mythology created by Johnson and Alvey that will
instantly draw in readers. 
“Head Wounds: Sparrow is an exceptionally powerful tale as it draws from the
creators’ own life experiences, as well as their passion for the medium,” said
Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics. “Sometimes things come
together so effortlessly, and this is one of those projects.”
“Bob Johnson has a mind and a soul like no one else,” said Isaac. “Our friendship
and creative collaboration has spanned nearly three decades. I couldn’t be more
excited to bring his unique and singular vision of Head Wounds: Sparrow to life with
the incredible group of artists we’ve assembled.”
Head Wounds: Sparrow is written by New York Times’ best-selling writer Brian
Buccellato (Legendary Comics’ POKÉMON: Detective Pikachu and Lost in Space:
Countdown to Danger; DC Comics’ Flash and Injustice) and will feature art by
Christian Ward (Invisible Kingdom; ODY-C; Marvel’s Black Bolt).
