Syfy has put in development Harrow County, a drama adaptation of the new Dark Horse comic written by Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun) and illustrated by Tyler Crook (Bad Blood).
Harrow County was among the first titles identified under Universal Cable Prods.’ first-look deal with Dark Horse Entertainment announced in July. The project has now been set up at Syfy with Becky Kirsch tapped to write the adaptation.
Harrow County centers on Emmy who has always known that the deep, dark woods surrounding her home crawled with ghosts, goblins, and the restless dead. On the eve of her 18th birthday, she learns that she is connected to these creatures and to the land itself in a way she never imagined, for she is the reincarnation of a powerful witch who was put to death on the very day Emmy was born. For this reason, the townsfolk mean to kill her too. In order to survive, Emmy must embrace the unusual powers at her command.
Kirsch has emerged as one of Syfy’s go-to writers. She worked on the network’s Dominion and Twelve Monkeys before being drafted for Harrow County.
Harrow County #1 is going for between $9-$14. There are no copies of the Four Color Grail's variant for sale at the moment but Mycomicshop.com has them for $35-$45. (I picked one of these up back in July for under $10 shipped.)
There is also a great deal on the HeroesCon Variant by Jason Latour, 19 copies left, at $4 plus shipping. Don’t want to sleep on this one as they will start drying up in the next five minutes I would imagine (there were 20 but had to snag one at this price, I do love this series.)
Not to mention that back on 5/13/15 I had this to say when the book was a pick of the week:
Harrow County– I love a good horror story. Plus, add in writer Cullen Bunn is no stranger to having studio types sniff around his work (Sixth Gunn was optioned but it fell through.) And not to mention he has worked on high profile characters such as Deadpool, and you have a reason to pick the book.
