A Bewitching New Comic Series Tells Timeless Tales of Mermaids and Magic
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 23, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today announced JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS, an all-new four-issue comic series based on the Emmy Award-winning classic television show, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, spinning new tales about enchanting creatures from folklore and the deep, available in stores April 2019.
Featuring beautiful stories told by some of today’s most exciting voices, including Jakub Rebelka (Judas) with Bartosz Sztybor, Chan Chau (Elements:Fire), Sarah Webb (Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Under the Spell), and Aud Koch (The Wicked + The Divine), JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS dives deep into the legends and myths of mermaids from all over the world, and what happens when humanity answers their call.
JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS features main connecting covers by Cory Godbey (Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Tales), along with variant covers by artists Jakub Rebelka (Judas), Chan Chau (Elements: Fire), Sarah Webb (Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Under the Spell), and Aud Koch (The Wicked + The Divine).
“The contradictions of mermaids — being creatures of incredible beauty and yet danger, appearing human but being of the sea — makes them ripe for a wide range of stories,” said Cameron Chittock, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “This lineup of artists deliver on that potential in stunning vibrancy in what might be our boldest series of The Storyteller yet.”
