Discovered in the Archives of the The Jim Henson Company, A Tale of Sand is an original graphic novel adaptation of an unproduced, feature-length screenplay written by Jim Henson and his frequent writing partner, Jerry Juhl.

Editorial Reviews

Jim Henson died in 1990, but his fertile imagination lives on in The Muppets and his other creations. Not all his many projects had been completed by the time of his tragic death. One of them, the basis of this graphic novel, was an unproduced, feature-length screenplay by Henson and his frequent writing partner Jerry Juhl. A Tale of Sand follows the unplanned adventures and struggle to survive of a man marooned in the Great America Southwest.
