From the Press Release:
Titan Comics is thrilled to announce it has secured a licensing deal with CBS Consumer Products and Showtime to publish an all-new comic prequel to the Showtime series “Penny Dreadful.”

The first PENNY DREADFUL comic series is due to hit stores in spring 2016 and will be written by “Penny Dreadful” scriptwriters Chris King, Krysty Wilson-Cairns, and Andrew Hinderaker with art from Louie De Martinis (Madness, Heavy Metal).

“This incredibly exciting new comic series is going to captivate fans of horror, literature, and ‘Penny Dreadful’ alike, giving them a whole new insight into the lives of the fascinating, even bewitching, characters,” said Lizzie Kaye, the Titan Comics editor.

The BAFTA Award-winning drama series “Penny Dreadful” stars Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, and Eva Green. The second season found Vanessa Ives (Green) and Ethan Chandler (Hartnett) forming a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm (Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sembene (Danny Sapani), united to banish the evil forces that threatened to destroy them. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney) and the Creature (Rory Kinnear) waged battles of their own.

“Penny Dreadful” is created, written, and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions and Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris’ (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife) Neal Street Productions. A co-production with Sky Atlantic, Season 3 is currently in production on location in Dublin, Ireland, for a nine-episode order to debut on Showtime in 2016.
