NYCC 2016: BOOM! Announces Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Giants and Exclusives

BOOM! Studios will be making ten announcements on the way to this year’s New York Comic Con. Up first, the publisher has revealed that Archaia will be launching the limited series Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Giants in December.

Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Giants is the follow-up to Archaia’s Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches and Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons.

The limited series 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.
