Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons Features Fiery Tales from Rising Stars

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 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.

Dragons have taken on many shapes in different cultures, and each issue of Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons will feature creators exploring these legendary creatures in their own unique styles. In the first issue, Fabian Rangel Jr. and artist Daniel Bayliss bring us “Son of the Serpent,” inspired by Native American stories about the Horned Snake and the Thunderbird. Then newcomer Nathan Pride revisits the classic Celtic tale of the Lambton Worm, while Hannah Christenson presents a gender-swapped retelling of the Russian folktale following a knight and her squire whom challenge the three-headed dragon, Tugarin. Finally, Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award-winner Jorge Corona presents his take on the Japanese legend of a young girl facing the dragon Yofune Nushi.

Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons #1 arrives in comic shops from Archaia on December 2nd with a main cover by Daniel Bayliss for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code OCT151197. Also available in limited quantities is a Jackpot incentive cover by Cory Godbey, a 10 Years incentive cover by Kyla Vanderklugt, and a retailer incentive cover by David Petersen.

Archaia Announces Volume 2 of Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard

New legends will be forged! Archaia has announced a second volume of the Eisner Award-winning anthology miniseries Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard. The first of four issues is set to debut in May 2013. Mouse Guard is the best-selling fantasy comic book series created by Michigan-based David Petersen about a group of elite warrior mice who serve to protect and guide the common mice under their care.

As in the first volume, Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Vol. 2 finds a group of mice at the June Alley Inn trying to outdo one another in a storytelling competition, spinning typically fantastic tales of the Mouse Guard and their adventures. After all, the mouse that tells the best story gets their bar tab cleared! Petersen writes and illustrates the tavern scenes, while each contributor (or team of contributors) writes and illustrates the different mouse tales.

Petersen has assembled another all-star lineup for this four-issue miniseries. The contributors to issue #1 of Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Vol. 2 include Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Ben Caldwell (The Dare Detectives!), and the team of writer Nick Tapalansky and illustrator Alex Eckman-Lawn (Awakening).

Subsequent issues will include contributions from Christian Slade (Korgi), Rick Geary (The Adventures of Blanche), Jemma Salume (Unicorn Life Cycle), Jackson Sze (concept art on films like The Avengers and Iron Man 3), Cory Godbey (Fraggle Rock, the upcoming Jim Henson’s Labyrinth), Eric Canete (Fear Itself: Spider-Man), C.P. Wilson III (The Stuff of Legend), Bill Willingham (Fables), and fantasy illustrator Justin Gerard.

Archaia will release the hardcover collection in late Fall of 2013.
