Carnival Row Prequel Comics

 

From Legendary Comics come two prequel one-shot companions to introduce the show’s main protagonists Rycroft Philostrate (Orlando Bloom) and Vignette Stonemoss (Cara Delevingne) and their backstories.

“From the Dark” follows Rycroft Philostrate as he adjusts to his life in The Burgue, and the memories of his former life intertwine with a mystery that will take him through the strange city streets that he now calls home. A recent bomb attack has only intensified the situation. Can he find the people responsible before there is another explosion?

“Sparrowhawk” features Vignette and her fellow Fae, who after finding their homeland under attack, must fight and sacrifice in order to reach safety. Mythical powers only count for so much, when the other side has them too. Will they find the refuge they are looking for or does an even bigger threat wait for them?

The comics are already available on ComiXology. Both are free for the first week of release, but will cost $0.99 after 4 September 2019.
