BOOM! Studios has announced another Storyteller series, this time presenting folk tales of life after death in Jim Henson’s Storyteller: Ghosts #1.
The first issue in the four issue mini-series is from Mark Laszlo and Jim Campbell.
In Scandinavian folklore, there exists a vengeful ghost known as the Myling. A man traveling at night comes across a haunting cry from within the forest. He enters it to find a spirit who demands to be carried to its proper burial site. The man agrees, but as he travels forth, the spirit’s grip tightens… it grows in size…and the man moves slower and slower. Can he unburden himself of this terrifying weight before it brings him down for good?
“Ghosts can shock and terrify us, but they also can reveal something profound about loss, grief, and the value of life.” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Storyteller: Ghosts aims higher than just what goes bump in the night. This diverse collection of supernatural folklore will present plenty of scares, but you might be surprised by how touching these tales can be. ”
Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Ghosts #1 is scheduled to arrive on March 11, 2020.
