A Tale of Sand follows scruffy everyman, Join us as we explore this missing piece of Jim Henson's career in a celebration of his creative process. So, this book was originally a screen play written by Jim Henson before he started creating the Muppets show, and has been lost in the Henson archives for years until it was recently found. Random things just happen, for not particular reason, and nothing serves a purpose. Honestly though, Henson’s and cohort Jerry Juhl’s writing is easily the chink in the armor of what is a pretty mouthwatering book. Tale of Sand‘s frontmatter clues us in to the situation.

Tale of Sand is a dark existential screenplay originally written in 1967 by Jim Henson and Jerry Juhl. Henson came up with the idea in the mid to late 1950s and worked with Juhl in scripting the feature-length screenplay throughout the late '60s and early '70s. Tale of Sand married the visuals of Henson's Time Piece with the ideas of The Cube. Due to the scope and strangeness of the screenplay, Henson was never able to produce it as a film.

Ramon K Perez is an incredible illustrator, He would have to be to undertake this fever dream of a story adapted from a screenplay by Jim Henson. Tale of Sand is beautifully rendered and takes on many characteristics of a dreamlike state. It lacks a clear linear narrative and there are seemingly nonsensical twists and turn and, improbable characters and situations. Perez approaches the subject matter with the utmost seriousness and delivers beautifully. The art fluctuates from monochromatic to saturated computer colors to water colors and back again. These artistic fluctuations promote the dream state feel. They fit together oddly in the story but translate the script to pictures perfectly. Tale of Sand has helped Mr. Perez rocket to the top of my list of favorite draftsmen and rightfully so.

It's not your expectations of Jim Henson, that's for sure, and it's one of those things (like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) where reading (or in this case viewing) the book isn't quite the same thing as the eventual movie would have been.
I give it 5 STARS for the comic rendering and concept - nobody could have done it better.
I give 3 stars because it just doesn't come through for me as a graphic novel, and I'm sad that it isn't a movie instead that I could watch... and in the end, I'm not likely to come back to it and read it again or recommend it. you know?
I don't really feel bad saying it would be a better movie ... because that's what it was written for!! hah!

Perez instantly became one of my favorite artists because of this book!
I cannot recommend this book more highly to anyone, whether you're into graphic novels or not. The story telling is AMAZING. It's all pretty surreal and ridiculous, sometimes confusing, but that makes the experience all the more dreamlike and fantastical.
The crazy thing is, the script calls for minuscule amounts of dialogue, which for so many stories, carries the plot. But in this book, the skillfulness of the illustrator to express the plot and create story flow is staggering. The only reason there are confusing parts is because that is what the script called for, it was on purpose. This book is beautiful, and even without muppets, it carries the quality of storytelling you can expect from Henson.

First of all, I'm not big admirer of Jim Henson's work. I think that Muppets is a landmark creation but I not consider myself a fan. Definitely not. But what this book represent is a different thing. This is not a program for youngers with well constructed characters, clever dialogues and good jokes.
This is a profound and surreal fairytale. When read this book the feel you will experience is comparable with the sensation of see a Tim Burton's or Terry Gilliam's movie, or like read a Neil Gaiman's tale.
About the art of "Tale of Sand", everything is outstanding. It's something between J.H.William III, Cliff Chiang and Moebius (!). Characters, scenarios, diagramation, colors, everything works as they should. Is a true banquet for the eyes.
So, definitely you should give a chance for this one ... you have a huge chance of regret if you not read it.

AMAAAAAAAZING. Mind blowing. Gorgeous. Epic. Hallucinatory. Oh my gaaaaawdt the best. Forreal. Buy it. Buy three copies and give them to your friends. Give one to your mom. Buy one and read it aloud to your dog. This book should be required reading for graduating from high school.
EROROHALO
I loved this book. The writing and the visual storytelling is not typical and was fun to take in. There is very little dialog. Normally that would hurt a book but Ramon Perez's art fills that gap perfectly. If you are a fan of non-superhero books, and you are looking for something neat, give this a shot! Its incredibly well done.

My wife is a huge Jim Henson fan and I've always been an admirer of Perez's work in comics. So this is a match made in heaven for us! I was lead to this graphic novel by Skottie Young (if you're a fan of great comic art like Perez, then Young is another artist you should not miss... *cough* *cough*) and I have to say, after reading, that I have not been lead astray. The print quality of this graphic novel is beyond everything I have come to expect from titles today...lovely craftsmanship. The story is portrayed brilliantly by Perez's flowing artwork and brings a huge complement to Henson and Juhl's screenplay.

If you are in anyway a fan of great minds coming together to create an intriguing and mystifying project then look no further...Tale of Sand is a wonderful collaboration and all those involved in making this project happen have my thanks for bringing this to my wife and I's collection.
Amazing art, sub-par story.

This screenplay was never made into a film for a reason: it's not very good. The art is incredible, and the print design and reading experience are absolutely top-notch. It's worth reading for the visuals alone, but the story is mediocre.
