Jennifer Love Hewitt is dead serious about her new gig as a comic book creator, and her first title is set for release in November. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s The Music Box from IDW Publishing is a 10-issue anthology series involving a mysterious music box that causes strange occurrences for the people who possess it. It’s not necessarily the most novel concept, as cursed objects passing from one person to another is as old as The Monkey’s Paw. It’s all in the execution.

And, Hewitt will have a role to play in that, too, as the issues will be co-written by Hewitt and veteran comic scribe Scott Lobdell. The first issue will showcase painted art by Michael Gaydos. Other issues will feature artists such as Casey Maloney (G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra), Adam Archer (Friday the 13th), and Joe Rubenstein. This could be a neat little 2D Twilight Zone — or it could be a hacky rehashing of old radio stories.

But Music Box offers something TV is afraid to do these days — an anthology series. Once a key genre from the 1950s into the early 1980s, anthologies are all but DOA now. And that’s too bad, because they offered writers a chance to let their imaginations run wild. TV execs now believe fans tune in only to see characters and need someone to tie themselves to beyond a mere premise. If that had been the thinking decades ago, we’d have no Twilight Zone, no Outer Limits, no Police Story, etc.
