Dark Crystal Sequel Comic Coming In 2017

Just what everyone has been clamoring for!


Source: Press Release

Archaia is teaming with The Jim Henson Company to release a comic book sequel to 1982's The Dark Crystal. The 12 issue limited series is based on the screenplay for the unreleased film sequel. The Power of the Dark Crystal is written by Simon Spurrier (The Spire, Six-Gun Gorilla) and illustrated by rising artists Kelly and Nichole Matthews (Toil and Trouble, Lumberjanes/Gotham Academy). The first issue hits stands February 15, 2017.

Countless decades have passed since the events of the original film. Though Jen and Kira have ruled Thra from the Crystal Castle peacefully as King and Queen, bringing Gelfling back to the land, they have become distracted by power and can no longer feel or see the needs of the world and its people the way they once did. Enter Thurma, a young Fireling girl tasked with obtaining a shard of the Dark Crystal—by any means necessary—to restore power to her realm. This sets in motion an incredible adventure in which Thurma will attempt to steal a crystal shard, befriend the young Gelfling Kensho, and accidentally bring back the Skeksis and Mystics.
