The Dark Crystal is the groundbreaking 1982 film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. It is the story about a young Gelfling who embarks on a quest to save his world from the vicious Skeksis by restoring the lost shard of the broken dark crystal. A prequel television series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, will premiere on Netflix on August 30, 2019. As a lead in to the Netflix series, Boom Studios will be publishing a twelve issue comic book series based on a story from the Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
“AGE OF RESISTANCE will go deeper into the history of Thra and its inhabitants than ever before, making it an essential read for any fan of Jim Henson’s beloved film, but also illuminating the Netflix series in ways you won’t want to miss!” said Matthew Levine, Editor, BOOM! Studios.
“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.” said 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.”
