Penny Dreadful #1: Covers revealed! Set six months after the smash hit TV series finale
Titan Comics showcases the covers from PENNY DREADFUL #1 – a brand-new ongoing series, entitled “The Awaking”, set six months after the shocking events of Season Three from Showtime original series Penny Dreadful!
Written by Penny Dreadful TV series Co-Executive Producer Chris King, with interior art from Jesús Hervás (Sons of Anarchy), this new comic sees Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) unable to move on.
