Emilia Cilento Tells a Time-Honored Kitsune Folktale in Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Shapeshifters #3

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Shapeshifters #3, the third issue of the new four-issue comic book series based on the Emmy Award-winning classic television show Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, by writer and artist Emilia Cilento and letterer Jim Campbell, about a mysterious woman in a classic Japanese folktale, available on May 4, 2022.

Cartoonist Emilia Cilento weaves a beautiful story based on a folktale about the Japanese word for “fox” — “kitsune.” The Storyteller’s tale tells of a family with unconventional origins, a woman that is more than she seems, and the bonds of unconditional love that can transcend anything. 

Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Shapeshifters #3 will feature main cover art by illustrator Frany and variant cover art by artist Mateus Manhanini.
