Media release — In honor of what would have been the late Jim Henson’s 75th birthday, award-winning publisher Archaia entertainment will debut the very first 20 pages of the upcoming original graphic book Jim Henson’s tale of Sand, which is based on an unproduced screenplay written by Henson as well as longtime collaborator Jerry Juhl as well as visualized as well as illustrated by acclaimed artist Ramón Pérez, it was announced by Editor-in-Chief Stephen Christy today. The pages will appear solely on Archaia.com.
“We are so pleased to be able to share with Henson fans a glimpse inside this groundbreaking project,” stated Christy. “Ramón Peréz has produced a stunning visual translation of Jim Henson’s only unproduced feature-length screenplay, as well as we are honored to debut this special preview of the forthcoming graphic book in partnership with The Jim Henson business as well as Google’s event of Jim’s birthday.”
Tale of Sand, a dark, existential feature-length screenplay that built off of concepts Jim Henson had been establishing since he created his Academy Award-nominated short film “Timepiece,” tells the story of a guy who is kicked out of a dusty town in the middle of the desert, without any memory of who he is or where he came from. Relentlessly pursued by an unknown assailant, as well as with only a rucksack of odds-and-ends to his name, he embarks on a determined race across an progressively bizarre landscape with only one thing in mind: survival.
Archaia as well as The Jim Henson business entered into a multi-year publishing partnership in 2009 for Archaia to publish comics as well as graphic novels based on traditional franchises like Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal as well as Labyrinth, in addition to new, co-branded original properties.
Jim Henson’s tale of Sand (hardcover, 152pp, $29.95, ISBN: 978-1-936393-09-1) is arranged to debut in comic book shops as well as anywhere books are sold in November 2011.
