    As is the case with most Storyteller stories, the real monster or menace isn't always immediately realized. VER has created a tale of loss and terror by allowing most panels to have a dark tone, while still allowing light to peak in. This is a tale of a grandmother's hope, of a promise to keep. Still, there is a glimpse of hope; a promise may be kept. And, as the final story for now ends, the Storyteller reminds us how we may always be reminded of them, always. Read Full Review

    JIM HENSON'S STORYTELLER - GHOSTS #4 is a haunting, sometimes heart breaking, tale that reminds you a promise to a loved one can overcome the fear of the dark and even Death itself. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Honestly not much to say about Jim Henson's Storyteller: Ghosts #4. If you liked the other issues you will like this one. If you enjoy short stories about folklore mixed with supernatural then you definitely need to check this issue (and the other three) out. VER does a great job of capturing the essence of this series and you will not be disappointed. This is going to make a great collection for kids and adults that I hope they have out in time for Halloween this year! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 5, 2020

    All of the visuals in this issue are where Ver really shines with this story. Ver uses the art to reflect the tone of the story and refrains from making it too dark. Even thr characters that are designed to be scary to the reader have a sense of wonder to them visually. Read Full Review
