2019’s series “Carnival Row” was absolutely fantastic and the fact that a second season was never made still irks me to this day. But, I do have good news for my fellow fans, the unique world of “Carnival Row” will soon return, not as a new season, but as a new graphic novel series, Tales of Carnival Row, from Legendary Comics that will feature original stories from the hit show from Legendary Comics and Amazon Video.


“In the dark and magical world of Carnival Row, there are many stories to be told. Readers can explore the Burgue, where war-weary humans and Fae strike an uneasy peace and eke out a meager coexistence in this new anthology graphic novel. Fans can take a closer look at the myths and half-truths surrounding their favorite characters, including Philo, Vignette, Millworthy, Agreus, Tourmaline, and Aisling.”

Writer George Mann (Wychwood, the Newbury & Hobbes series) and series writers C.M. Landrus, Charles Valasquez-Witosky, and Jordan Crair have crafted tales that will shed light on some of the most popular characters from the neo-noir Victorian fantasy series, with art by Magda Price, Giorgia Sposito, Gus Storms, Harvey M. Tolibao, and Ashley A. Woods. The cover is by ZID (Kingdom Kong, Dune: The Official Movie Graphic Novel) with a variant cover by Mike Collins (Doctor Who).

Carnival Row is such a rich world with so many interesting characters,” said Robert Napton, senior vice president of Legendary Comics. “The Row itself is a setting so full of mystery and lore, so it was fun to delve into some of the nooks and crannies in an anthology format to see what we might find.”

“Stepping onto Carnival Row and being given the chance to walk a few steps in the boots of some of these fantastic characters was a real joy,” said the graphic novel’s writer, George Mann. “The setting is so vivid and gritty, but with an undercurrent of delicious magic and folklore that makes it all the more compelling. Crafting new tales for these characters alongside a host of talented artists was a huge amount of fun.”

Amazon Prime’s TV series starred Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne as is currently available to stream. The series saw mythical creatures are fleeing their war-torn homeland to a new land. Tensions are rising between the residents and the ever-growing immigrant population. The series will follow investigations into a string of unsolved murders which are causing the tensions to worsen.

Tales of Carnival Row will be available on July 26, 2022, and is now available for pre-order from AmazonBarnes & NobleIndie Bound, and ComicShopLocator.com.
