A First Look at JIM HENSON'S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #2

A Bewitching New Comic Series Tells Timeless Tales of Mermaids and Magic

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #2, an exciting new tale in the four-issue comic book series based on the Emmy Award-winning classic television show, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller. The story follows a lonely goddess who created humans and animals and built a world where she would never have to be alone again, in stores May 2019.

JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #2, from cartoonist Chan Chau, introduces readers to the goddess Nuwa, a shapeshifting snake deity who traveled the world at its creation when the earth and trees and air were perfect and brand new. While Nuwa had the whole world at her disposal, able to scale mountains and visit oceans whenever she pleased, she found herself overtaken by loneliness. And so began the creation of animals and people, and the start of human life and love.

JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #2 features a main connecting cover by Cory Godbey (Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Tales) and a variant cover by Chau.

“Chan Chau’s lovely storytelling and brilliant art come together in SIRENS #2 to tell a tale about how the world came to be,” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Chau imagines that the human race was born from a goddess’ heartfelt desire for love and companionship, resulting in a story that is sure to delight fans of fantasy, legends, and myths.”

JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #2 is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ ambitious Archaia imprint, home to graphic novels such as Mouse Guard by David Petersen; Rust by Royden Lepp; Bolivar by Sean Rubin; Jane by Aline Brosh McKenna and Ramón K. Pérez; About Betty’s Boob by Vero Cazot and Julie Rocheleau; and licensed series like Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Coronation.

Supernatural: The Complete Fourteenth Season Blu-ray Review

*Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own* Synopsis: The Winchester brothers’ harrowing journey into the heart of darkness continues as Supernatural enters Season Fourteen. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have matched wits with monsters, demons, Heaven and Hell.

Book of the Week: Sci-Fi Thriller, Doyle’s Law

Doyle’s Law: Sci-Fi Thriller, a “Wild Ride”, Straps Readers into Space Station with Cosmos’ Most Irreverent Scientist Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is an intricate, cinematic new thriller that fuses intense paranoia and science fiction, told through the periscope of a bumbling, inept scientist attempting to fix the space station he has royally sabotaged. It’s a story in two parts, as time twists, plots tangle and the depths of human clumsiness become chillingly evident. One critic recently wrote, “This damn book cost me too much needed sleep. It was like a giant puzzle with all the pieces slowly making sense and fitting together. Well done, sir.” When most authors depict the crews of spaceships, they are painted as fearless, totally-in-control heroes using their wit and tenacity to achieve the unthinkable… …But Chief O’Connor, protagonist in Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is slightly less noble. In fact, his entire crew suspects him of sabotage and rampant buck-passing. As hostilities ri
