This first ghost tale is about a mythical being known as a Myling, a spirit of a dead soul that wants to rest. It feels like a dark Brothers Grimm-style story, birthed from almost gothic folklore. Unlike most comics, it is told almost exclusively by the narrator which adds to the overall storytelling aspect. Mark Laszlo’s art was a good indicator of the story's style; it was very European with its thin lines and quirky style.
If you like old-school fairy tales and folklore, bust out the s'mores, find a campfire, and pick up the first issue of the new Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Ghosts #1 at your local comic book shop.
