Get Ready for Storyteller: Witches

Published: June 18, 2014

The Storyteller (and his dog) are back for another tale by the fire.  This time, things are getting witchy.

Archaia just announced their second miniseries based on The Storyteller, which will contain four issues all about witches starting this September.

One interesting note is that one of the stories is based on an unproduced screenplay by Anthony Minghella, who wrote the original Storyteller episodes.  Also, I’m left wondering how much involvement the Storyteller and the dog will have in these books.  I feel that there has to be more than just the throughline of the recurring narrator to justify a bunch of assorted folktales as “Storyteller” stories.  Hopefully the writers below have cracked the code.
