The Night The Cricket-Man Came

I don’t think it’s a secret that I enjoy good retellings of classic tales. Just look at the number of twisted or re-told fairy tales that grace the pages of Niteblade and you can see that. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is one of those stories I’ve loved since I was a kid watching the Disney version on The Magical World of Disney on Sunday night. If I love a story as much as I do that one, then getting me to accept a retelling of it is a tricky thing.

Alejandro Omidsalar pulled it off.

The Night The Cricket-Man Came finds its roots in the classic story by Washington Irving, but grows into something quite wonderous all its own. I strongly recommend checking it out in the latest issue of Niteblade.
