Jennifer Love Hewitt's Music Box (sometimes referred to as The Music Box) is a five-issue comic book series published by IDW Publishing in 2009–2010. It is centered on a music box which causes strange occurrences for the people who possess it.

Premise[edit]

Each issue of the series focuses on a different character, all of whom come in contact with a mysterious music box which causes strange occurrences (such as time travel or alternate realities). Each story is tied together through the use of the music box.[1]

History[edit]

In July 2009, it was announced that actress Jennifer Love Hewitt was teaming up with IDW to create a comic book series based on her own ideas.[1] Veteran comic book writer Scott Lobdell signed on to script the series,[2] with artists such as Michael Gaydos, Joe Rubenstein, Casey Maloney, Adam Archer and the late George Tuska creating the panels for each issue.[3]

Hewitt released a statement when the series was announced, saying: "The chance to create my very own comic, and a horror/thriller at that, is like a very fun nightmare come true."[4] Lobdell also added his thoughts of working on the series, stating: "Tasked with the responsibility of turning Love’s vision into reality has been a total thrill."[1]

Release[edit]

The first issue of Jennifer Love Hewitt's Music Box launched on November 1, 2009, with the final issue becoming available on April 1, 2010.[5] An initial ten-issue run for the series was announced,[1] but it later ended after five issues had been published. The entire anthology is now available in trade paperback.
