Preview: Four Haunted Tales From Around The Globe In ‘Jim Henson’s The Storyteller- Ghosts’ HC
by Brendan M. Allen
The critically acclaimed Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Ghosts celebrates four mythic tales of when ghosts haunted the Earth, inspired by folklore from around the world and told in the spirit of Jim Henson’s beloved television series.
‘Within Scandanavian folklore, there exists a vengeful ghost known as a Myling. A man traveling at night comes across a haunting cry from within the forest. He enters it to find a spirit who demands to be carried to its proper burial site. The man agrees, but as he travels forth, the spirit’s grip tightens… it grows in size…and the man’s gait slows. Can he unburden himself of this terrifying weight before it brings him down for good?’
Featuring an array of styles and stories by some of today’s most original talent, including Michael Walsh, Márk László, Jennifer Rostowksy, and VER, this stunning hardcover edition also includes an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the process and care taken in adapting each of the these timeless tales.
