Jim Henson’s Shapeshifters #1 Signing with Andre Frattino
BOOM! Studios announced today JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SHAPESHIFTERS, a brand new four-issue comic book series based on the Emmy Award-winning classic television show, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller. Each issue will feature a new creative team, with the first issue by writer Andre R. Frattino (Simon Says: Nazi Hunter), artist Nori Retherford, colorist Kieran Quigley and letterer Jim Campbell, spinning a fresh new tale about the ancient Celtic myth of the swan Children of Lir, available in March 2022.
In JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SHAPESHIFTERS #1, Dain, a nefarious, power-hungry magic user and Lir’s brother-in-law, plots to steal the throne from Lir and his family by turning Lir’s children into swans and ascending the throne himself. While Fionna, the eldest child, attempts to find a way to break their curse, the swan-children are forced to wander near and far for nearly a thousand years. They endure much hardship and sorrow but face the curse together . . . finding solace and strength in one another.
