Last year, BOOM! and Jim Henson studios gave us a short story arc of tales of Witches in The Storyteller to pour over and enjoy. This year, Dragons will be taking the spotlight. The four-issue limited story arc of Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons will begin release December 2nd 2015. What’s even more exciting is that BOOM! plans to use a variety of new talents to tell the tales. Here’s what we know:
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. (Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard) and artist Daniel Bayliss (Translucid) 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 (Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard) 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 (We Are Robin, Feathers) presents his take on the Japanese legend of a young girl facing the dragon Yofune Nushi.
