Matthew Dow Smith (XHELLBOY) tells the epic Irish folktale of "The Phantom Isle." When a young man shipwrecks on a mysterious island ruled by a council of witches, he has the choice of freedom or staying on the isle where he does not age. The lure of immortality is hard to resist, but it comes with a price he may not be willing to pay.

    This was a good done in one story that should tickle the fancy of those who love storytelling. It feels like a complete story. It's a bit slow, but well worth a look. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Nov 17, 2014

    Judged against the merits of the other issues so far in this series, this one lands squarely in the middle. It wasnt as off-topic as the first, nor was it as beautiful as the second. Instead it ends up being a serviceable attempt, though it comes up short in the end. In terms of the overall series, it is likely that it will be collected into a trade paperback at some point, and that being the case, this issue will fit in well, but as a stand-alone issue it still really isnt worth going out of the way for.

    Smith's art is serviceable and sets a melancholy tone which advocates for a ghostly affair. While this issue falls short in some aspects when trying to give us the oomph it promises, it's still a well-crafted story that makes for a pleasant read. Read Full Review

    "Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Witches" #3 is an enjoyable, thoughtful issue with plenty going for it, but unless you have a particular interest in the series or the folktale at hand, it's not an essential add to your pull list. Read Full Review
