Nigerian-American fantasy writer Jordan Ifueko announced on Instagram that she has written a comic book for Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Trickster series.
The series is based on the Emmy Award-winning television show The Storyteller. Jim Henson, FYI, is the creator of the Muppets.
Ifueko’s comic is the second in the series. She wrote Tricksters #2 in collaboration with graphic artist, Erin Kubo.
Read the synopsis below:
A teen Yoruba village girl summons the great god of mischief, Eshu, to coerce her crush, a dashing hunter, to break up with his sweetheart and marry her instead. Eshu agrees to help her, reveling at the chance to wreak havoc with them all…only to find that the village girl had a mischievous plot all of her own.
Ifueko proudly shared the cover art on her Instagram earlier this month.
