Sleepy Hollow: Origins #1
Author: Mike Johnson
Artist: Matías Bergara
What’s To Love: We’re huge Sleepyheads here at BOOM!, so we jumped at the chance to explore the never-before-seen history of some of our favorite characters from the hit Fox TV show. We worked hand-in-hand with Sleepy Hollow show writers, writer Mike Johnson (Star Trek), and Sons of Anarchy artist Matías Bergara to bring fans the true origins of Abbie, Ichabod, Jenny, Henry, and the Hessian.

What It Is: You’ve watched Ichabod and Abbie battle the forces of Moloch and the Hessians, now see how they first got started with five short stories revealing the official origins of your favorite Sleepy Hollow characters. Travel back to the first days of Abbie on the job, Jenny in an institution, and Ichabod turning his back on Queen and Country for justice. Find out how Henry was born the horseman of the apocalypse War, and relive the Hessian’s life as Abraham.

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: Sports
This week is an interesting one for sports; Major League Baseball just started, college basketball wrapped, high schools are deep into their track and field events, and soccer has started for my two young kids. We all have a sport that we gravitate toward, and some we see as more popular than another. It is the idea of perceived popularity that intrigues me, and perhaps you have an idea or two to share. While we can’t list every sport, we can present a listing of some of the readily accessible sports, and ask you, our most favorite people in the world, which is the most popular sport to watch in the United States of America?

    hearing some strange music cutting into the background of the podcast that is a bit distracting. Anyone else?

        …and never mind, just something on my computer’s end. Sleep deprivation is not your friend, kids. :)

          Don’t worry. I do the same thing all the time while editing video.

    I live in Los Angeles, and I’d much rather have WonderCon at the LA Convention Center than in Anaheim. They’ve really regentrified the downtown area around the CC, and there are plenty of places to eat/hang-out after hours in the area. Plus, while LA’s public transport system is still pretty lacking, the downtown corridor is the most easily accessible area in town. The same cannot be said about Anaheim.
