The legend of Sleepy hollow

The Horrors of it All posted the Classics Illustrated # 12 version of the Headless Horseman: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in 2008. Reading the original story is still the best way to enjoy Washington Irving's tale, keep a dictionary handy; but I am always interested in seeing how the original story has been adapted.

The Michigan State University Libraries Special Collections Division lists Classic Illustrated #12 as follows:
