#2 The Tailor’s Daughter
The Storyteller is the protagonist who was created by Jim Henson in the late 1980s to combine several tales together. His loyal dog, who usually takes a nap beside the fireplace, is with him. Consider the Storyteller to be a Tales From The Crypt-esque take on the Crypt Keeper from earlier episodes.
Jim Henson's The Storyteller Giants is this generation's version of everyone's beloved chattering grandfather. Previously, the Storyteller introduced us to dragons and witches, but now he tells us stories about giants.
The old tailor, who has gathered his six sons and one daughter to inform them about the family's riches, is the protagonist of Issue 2 of The Storyteller Giants. The girl's father was going to marry her to the man who resided at the top of the mountain in a story, as it sometimes occurred in fairy tales. The only distinction in this narrative is that the person is a colossus, at least 15 times larger than the tailor's daughter.
The girl at first thinks he's delicious, but when she meets him, he says that he's nice and promises to feed her and provide her with anything she could desire as long as she doesn't open the basement door. You know what happens when someone says not to do anything, right? Even if they're a big giant with a red face.
A dozen women are imprisoned in the basement, each of whom has been promised something similar by the huge. When the tailor's daughter first made her way to the castle, the fun and merging of various world fairy tales occurred.
Alice traveled to many places, meeting a variety of people who she selflessly assisted out of hazardous situations. Those creatures gave her gifts that appeared unusual at first, but which help her when she finds out the true danger she's in.
It's like the lesson from the briar patch and the rabbit all over again. The artwork is intricate, beautiful, and some of the most gorgeous you'll find in comics. With just the silhouette of a character talking, Brandon Dayton leaves some of the panels vacant.
Some panels, on the other hand, are meticulously built to allow readers to easily imagine themselves in the giant's library, studying ancient tapestries drawn at unusual proportions.
The comic book's art and narrative are appropriate for all ages because there is no violence or profanity. However, while any age could read the comic, it will be most appreciated by kids in middle school through high school. Because of the fairy tale structure, fantastic artwork, and the fact that it's a comic book, it will appeal equally to boys and girls.
We (as grown-up readers) anticipate the Archaia comic books because they are some of the ones we (as adult readers) look forward to the most for a variety of reasons. Certainly, part of it is nostalgia for Jim Henson, his world, and the sense that his works will bring back memories.
His works have still maintained a connection with the original material in some fashion to this day, decades after his death. The Storyteller is still there, but new creators are donning the shoes. It has the same warmth, family appeal, and all-age appeal that you recall from your first encounter with the Storyteller.
