SDCC: IDW Brings Back Edward Scissorhands

If you liked the movie Edward Scissorhands you are going to love this. IDW Publishing is introducing a new 4-issue miniseries of Edward Scissorhands, in October by Fraggle Rock writer Kate Leth and artist Drew Rausch work together to bring back Edward Scissorhands in a fun and playful way that will appeal to younger readers.

In an interview with CBR News, Kate Leth tells us a little about what to be expecting in the book. She says the book has a new cast of people for this story that’s in the same set universe. Kim has passed away so it starts off with a teenage version of Kim’s granddaughter. At this point of the story, the great legend of Edward Scissorhands is just a town myth. Weird things start happening in town causing her to reconnect with Edward who has been hiding away in the secrecy of the old castle on the hill.

Keeping track of the world through newspapers, Edward keeps himself secluded after a traumatic experience, if you remember, at the end of the movie.  Hiding in shadows of the castle remembering the fond memories of Kim, Edward starts wandering through the building and finds this creature and brings him back to life. The child size creature is an abandoned prototype with functional hands that the inventor made before Edward.  But something was very wrong with him on the inside forcing the inventor to cancel the project and moving on to better things, storing him in the closet.

Being a big fan myself of the movie, Edward Scissorhands has me on the edge of my seat to find out more about this book. I'm thrilled that someone has finally thought about turning it into a book. Since its coming out in October its a perfect time to catch people's eye just in time for Halloween. It puts me into the mood to go watch the movie now.
