Are you ready for this?
The Sparrow and Crowe comic book is in development! As we recently mentioned, we’ve been working with artist Jared Souza on a prequel to Wormwood — our first tale is the case of poor Amanda Marino, Doctor Crowe’s last case before the events of Wormwood!
Here’s a brief teaser we wrote up:
Once a popular psychologist and best-selling author, Doctor Xander Crowe began a downward spiral after he failed to save the life of Samantha Holloway—a young girl possessed by an ancient Assyrian demon called Adramelech. The tragedy has haunted Crowe since, reducing the once respected analyst of the mind to a drunken, two-bit occult detective, scraping together a living by performing séances and minor exorcisms with the help of his assistant, the gothic hacker-magician called Sparrow. A second altercation with Adramelech has cost Crowe his right hand—which has been gruesomely replaced with a petrified “Hand of Glory.” The hand—which is kept gloved despite its occasional, twitchy movement—imbues Crowe with certain occult abilities, but its origin and ultimate purpose are shrouded in mystery.
SPARROW & CROWE: THE DEMONIAC OF LOS ANGELES is a 5-part story arc written by Wormwood creators David Accampo and Jeremy Rogers with art by Jared Souza. The mini-series follows Dr. Xander Crowe and Sparrow as they become entangled with Los Angeles mob boss Joseph “Don” Marino, whose daughter becomes possessed by an entity that Crowe believes is the demon Adramelech, returned to torment him once again.
We are proud to present to you the first four lettered pages of the comic book, which we’ve prepared as part of a bid to work with publishers in developing a Sparrow and Crowe comic book series. The art on these pages is painted by Jared Souza, with lettering by David Accampo.
