This one was my favourite one, I loved the story and the art was amazing. I like how the art in each story is different and fits the actual tale.

Short story with a message

I would recommend this as a bedtime story for a child. It has a message of being kind to others.

This is the second part of Jim Henson's The Storyteller Witches series. It is illustrated by a different artist. I like how the art Japanese-style, appropriate to the origin of the story. This time, it is more paneled than full page illustration. I like how although it's all full colour, there's an element play between black which shows darkness and white signifying the snow and both give it as very cold impression.

I like the use of textures in the graphics, very traditional Japanese art. I also

Ugh! I am so angry that this is only going to be a 4 issue series, it is so awesome!

This issue has a different style and tone than the first but it is just as great. First off the issue is in a landscape format it flows more like a traditional comic with panels and dialogue bubbles. The art was nice and the Snow Witch was gorgeous, but the real star of this issue is the story.

It is so very creepy, it gave me chills, very memorable.

Outstanding, cannot wait for the next installment. So happy I su

I think I like the story of this one better than the last one but I think I still like both soooo much. The art style is purposefully traditional-oriental? Okay I'm making stuff up hahaha but you know the lore is of a witch from one of the mountains either in China, Japan, or Korea and the art style is something like that. Imagine temples and nice garden with sakura trees in the yard. It's more apparent in this specific installment that this is a middlegrade story, very didactic and the lesson i ...more

Completely beautiful! The second installment of 4 in this Storyteller series. Presented in horizontal format. The art work is great! I've always loved The Storyteller, and these comics have been a fun addition. It's not a continuation of one storyline, but rather 4 separate stories about witches. Each written and illustrated by a different artist.

The hold very true to the charm of the original Storyteller shows.

This beautifully drawn, haunting Japanese tale fits in perfectly with the world that is "The Storyteller." It's not hard to hear John Hurt's narration as the story unfolds, and the ending is memorable in the way that 'The Soldier and Death' was. A short read but oh so worth it for faerie tale lovers and fellow "Storyteller" fans. ...more

A retelling of the Japanese myth of the Yuki Onna. It's a short little comic book, that has absolutely lovely art and a lovely telling of the tradtional story. Worth a read, even if it is just to look at the pretty pictures. ...more

Same issues I have with the first issue. Interesting story, but misleading marketing.
