BOOM! Studios is once again counting down to Comic Con, this time the New York Comic Con (Oct. 6-9), with 10 announcements in 10 days! Boom! sent out a handy graphic to help keep track! So, let’s get to it with today’s announcement, one I am definitely on board for!
Archaia to Launch Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Giants Limited Series in December
I am a huge fan of Jim Henson’s works, and the last two Storyteller series, Witches and Dragons, were both beyond amazing!
Here are the details of the first issue below, along with Conor Nolan’s cover:
Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Giants #1 (of 4)
Publisher: Archaia, an imprint of BOOM! Studios
Writer: Conor Nolan
Artist: Conor Nolan
Cover artist: Conor Nolan
Format: 32 pages, full color
On sale: December 7, 2016
Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Giants is a collection of mythic tales of when giants roamed the Earth, inspired by folklore from around the world and told in the spirit of Jim Henson’s beloved television series.
In this first issue, rising newcomer Conor Nolan reimagines the “The Peach’s Son,” a Japanese tale of a giant who was raised by humans but never accepted by them.
When a nearby village is overrun with evil beings, the giant will take a chance to be a hero and prove himself to be part of the community he calls home.
- Upcoming issues will include stories by Brandon Dayton, Jared Cullum, and Feifei Ruan.
More information on the series will be released at the New York Comic Con!
