Discover Robin and A.L. Kaplan’s Mischievous Loki and Thor Team-up in June 2021
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 28, 2021) – BOOM! Studios revealed today the first look of JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: TRICKSTERS #4, the final issue of the new comic book series based on the Emmy Award-winning classic television show, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, presenting several extraordinary folk tales of legendary tricksters from the four corners of the world. Real-life siblings Robin Kaplan (The City on The Other Side) and A.L. Kaplan (Full-Spectrum Therapy) present the next standalone chapter of the Jim Henson-inspired epic limited series, available in June 2021.
Can the Norse trickster god, Loki, get the legendary god of thunder, Thor, to embrace his feminine side? When Thor’s hammer ends up in the possession of the King of the Giants, only his clever brother will be able to aid him in retrieving it, but only if Thor can use his brains rather than his brawn.
JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: TRICKSTERS #4 will feature main cover art by artist Peach Momoko (Power Rangers) and variant cover art by artist Dani Pendergast (NPR).
