Jim Henson’s ‘The Storyteller’ Expands with Debut of ‘Fairies’ in December 2017
BOOM! Studios and The Jim Henson Company have announced their fourth Storyteller collaboration with Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Fairies, a four-issue limited series debuting in December featuring stand-alone stories by Matt Smith, Benjamin Schipper, Tyler Jenkins, and Celia Lowenthal.
From Jim Henson’s classic television show to the comic series, the Storyteller and his faithful dog have delighted and thrilled fans with myths, legends, and stories from all over the world. Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Fairies is the latest Storyteller series from BOOM! Studios, following Witches (2014), Dragons (2015), and Giants (2016).
In Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Fairies #1, Matt Smith reimagines “The Elf Queen and the Shepherd,” a tale of elven fairies in Iceland. When a Fairy Princess is cursed to the human realm and cursed to bring death with her, Grettir the Strong must discover the source of the trouble and break her curse. Future issues will focus on fairies from Hawaiian and Danish folklore.
Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Fairies #1 features covers by Matt Smith and Sas Milledge.
