From Jim Henson’s classic television show to the comic series, The Storyteller and his faithful dog have delighted and thrilled us with myths, legends, and stories from all over the world. Last year, Archaia, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, teamed up with The Jim Henson Company to explore four different stories about powerful witches, both good and evil, from a collection of talented writers and artists. This December, we curl up by the fire once again for the four-issue limited series Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons.
According to Deadline, BOOM! Studios Butterfly series from Arash Amel has been picked up to be adapted into a mini-series for Channel 4.
Award-winning publisher Archaia, an imprint of BOOM! Studios, and Macrocosm Entertainment are excited to reveal a new character in Lantern City, Martha Ellen Grey. Martha, in both the comic book series and upcoming television series in development, is portrayed by Mira Furlan. Furlan is a fan-favorite actress (Babylon 5 and Lost) that brings intelligence and passion to every role, and will make her debut in issue #6 on sale in October.
If we’ve learned anything from fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, it’s that magic powers usually have a hefty price attached. This October, S.M. Vidaurri (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches, Iron: Or, the War After) brings us his new Archaia original graphic novel Iscariot, the story of Carson, a young girl living with cancer whose life is changed when she is granted an age-old magic by the rebellious magician Iscariot.
