IDW Publishing has announced an 'Edward Scissorhands' sequel comic. Written by Kate Leth (Fraggle Rock) and illustrated by Drew Rausch (My Blacks Don’t Match!), the comic will continue the story following the events of Tim Burton’s Johnny Depp—starring 1990 film, reported Digital Spy.

The five—issue miniseries will apparently feature the little girl Winona Ryder’s character told her story to in the movie.

“In a castle just outside a sleepy suburban town, a brilliant inventor created Edward Scissorhands... but left him tragically unfinished,” reads IDW’s solicitation.

“Two generations of exile have left Edward digging through abandoned experiments, but once he wakes up a creature left buried, he discovers he isn’t the only one missing a vital piece.

“As Edward tries to fix a grave mistake, he comes face to face with a teenage girl who was sure he was only myth, despite the stories her grandmother told her, about the man she could never touch.”

’Edward Scissorhands #1’ will be released in October.
