L’éditeur Boom! Studios continue de développer, sur papier, l’univers des Monstres et Merveilles (The Storyteller en version originale) inventé par le maitre marionnettiste Jim Henson.

Après les sorcières et les dragons, c’est au tour des géants d’être croqués par différents artistes le temps d’une mini-série en quatre numéros.

L’artiste Conor Nolan lance les hostilités avec sa réinterprétation du conte japonais Momotaro, l’enfant né dans une pêche.
