Boom! Studios announces Prequel Comic for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.


Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is getting a 12 Issue mini-series.

Even though it’s a prequel series coming to Netflix, this is getting its own Prequel Mini-series thanks to Boom Studios. It beckons the question “How far are you willing to venture back in time?” And with the looks of it, we’re getting an answer listed in the description below:

Return to another world, another time, Before the Age of Wonder. The Skeksis rein over Thra, but there are distant echoes of rebellion. Gelfling and unlikely heroes emerge to champion what is good and just, but their paths to legend started long ago. Epic tales of adventure, magic, and mystery send us back in time to the Age of Resistance to witness the untold histories that forged these protectors of Thra.”

This series will be handled by Nicole Andelfinger, known for her work on Adventure time and Boom Studio’s Lumberjanes; for the artwork, it will be handled by Matias Basla, known for his work on the series Sparrowhawk. This will explore the world of Thra before the events of the famed rebellion that will be shown on the new Netflix Series. Andelfinger had this to say in a statement concerning the new series:

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, 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 the series coming to Netflix later this summer and a new video game coming to the Nintendo Switch, this will be the Dark Crystal’s big year!
