With Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance set to hit Netflix this August, Boom! Studios has announced an official tie-in comic book series, which is set to explore the events leading up to the TV show and detail the untold histories of key characters.
“There’s something extraordinarily universal about the theme of good vs. evil that seems to speak to so many people from so many walks of life. It’s why I think The Dark Crystal has such a strong legacy, even to this day!” said writer Nicole Andelfinger. “When I was offered the chance to play in that sandbox, exploring the facets of that conflict through some pivotal Age of Resistance characters, well, I couldn’t say no! With Matias Basla’s beautiful art, I’m sure you’ll come to love and adore these new additions to the world just as we have.”
“The Dark Crystal universe is something that has always fascinated me, from its unique artistic design to its history. Having the opportunity to work on Age of Resistance with such awesome characters and such a unique world is a joy as an artist.” added artist Matias Basla. “This is the kind of project that one faces with much love and respect, and I’m very happy to be the artist for this amazing series.”
Enter a world of wonder, danger, and excitement with writer Nicole Andelfinger (Adventure Time) and artist Matias Basla (Sparrowhawk) as they uncover an epic story from the world of Thra in the time before Age of Resistance. War and chaos reign over the once peaceful land and Gelflings everywhere must fight for the survival of their clans against menacing forces. When a Gelfling soldier sets off on a quest to retrieve the one item that could save their people, he changes the destinies of the inhabitants of Thra forever.
Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance #1 will go on sale on September 25th 2019, while the TV show hits Netflix on August 30th 2019.
