A First Look at JIM HENSON'S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #1

A Bewitching New Comic Series Tells Timeless Tales of Mermaids and Magic

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #1, the first story in the four-issue comic book series based on the Emmy Award-winning classic television show, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, about a cold, cruel fisherman and his captured siren, available in stores April 2019.

JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #1 by writer Bartosz Sztybor and artist Jakub Rebelka (Judas) spins the tale of a successful fisherman whose heart is as cold and unyielding as the coins he treasures above all else, including his wife and daughter. One night he chances upon a beautiful mermaid and bewitched by her voice, he imprisons her, abandoning his family and his life in order to listen to her siren song. But no heart can withstand the beauty of such music for long, and her notes eventually lead the fisherman on a journey to discover what he truly cherishes most in life.

JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #1 features a main connecting cover by Cory Godbey (Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Tales) and a variant cover by artist Jakub Rebelka.

“Bartosz and Jakub deliver a stunning story about ambition, greed, and the consequences of misplaced values,” said Cameron Chittock, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Like the best episodes of Jim Henson’s beloved television show, SIRENS #1 is an undeniably human tale, told with dazzling creativity.”

JIM HENSON’S THE STORYTELLER: SIRENS #1 is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ ambitious Archaia imprint, home to graphic novels such as Mouse Guard by David Petersen; Rust by Royden Lepp; Bolivar by Sean Rubin; Jane by Aline Brosh McKenna and Ramón K. Pérez; About Betty’s Boob by Vero Cazot and Julie Rocheleau; and licensed series like Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Coronation.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
