    By combining tales of morality with the supernatural, Jim Henson's Storyteller #2 continues to craft tales of things that go bump in the night. Seeing how the things that scare us came to be is an interesting way to present cautionary tales. Although it has been 30 years since his passing, the works of Jim Henson still amaze me.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald May 19, 2020

    While we might only be two issues into our four part anthology both have been quite entertaining and different reads. Fans of Jim Henson’s Storyteller are sure to enjoy these stories, and if the quality continues then it promises good things to come. What’s most impressive about this issue is the fact that Jennifer Rostowsky managed to write, draw and colour it. The way that the readers expectations of a ghost story are flipped around to tell a totally different, but equally entertaining story, makes it feel fresh and exciting. Read Full Review

    This book was enjoyable and for a first effort quite an achievement. I look forward to seeing more work by Rostowsky and I can wholeheartedly recommend this book for the writing along"and of course the use of a weird, wonderful and macabre vampire myth from Southeast Asia. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams May 20, 2020

    Another solid addition to The Storyteller back catalogue then, and an introduction to a new artist who I'll definitely be seeking out in the future. Well worth a look, particularly if you have any sort of interest in Asian folklore. Read Full Review

    Pastrami Nation - Jeremiah Gagnon Jun 15, 2020

    Overall this comic book was made for a kind of comic book reader that is not me. I can respect what they are trying to do and the story they are trying to tell. It is a story of love and loss, and why it is important not to make desperate and rash decisions. There is very little violence and lots of drama and love. If you are the kind of reader that loves light horror and romantic drama, you might just like to give this a read. Read Full Review
