“Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Ghosts” #4

By | Aug 7, 2020 | Reviews

Jim Henson’s The Storyteller was a classic show where the titular storyteller (played by the late, great John Hurt) shared old folktales and stories with his talking dog companion.

“Wandering Son” Volume 10 – Friends Old and New

By | Aug 2, 2020 | Reviews

Volume 10 of “Wandering Son” was arguably the most Shuichi-centric volume thus far. While earlier volumes balanced Shuichi’s experience with those of other characters like Yoshino, Yuki, or Saori, chapters 74 to 82 shone the spotlight on Shuichi and how they navigate friendships that shift as everyone gets older.
