Your First Look at JIM HENSON’S THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE #6


Discover a Brand New Adventure with Fan-Favorite Hup from the Critically Acclaimed Series in February 2020

BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at JIM HENSON’S THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE #6, the next chapter in a twelve-issue comic book series based on stories from writers from the Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Jeffrey Addis and Will Matthews, introducing the untold histories of key characters from the show, and featuring explosive events tying into the critically acclaimed production from The Jim Henson Company.

In JIM HENSON’S THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE #6, available in stores February 2020, writer Adam Cesare, artist French Carlomagno, and letterer Jim Campbell present the story of fan favorite Hup and brand-new character Barfinnious.

Podling cook Hup has joined the famous Paladin Barfinnious as a squire and set out from his small village for the first time! It seems that Hup’s dreams of becoming a Paladin himself are finally within reach. But when Barfinnious is more focused on making some quick coin than on performing acts of bravery, Hup realizes that his trust may have been misplaced.

The Dark Crystal is the groundbreaking 1982 film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz, featuring never-before-seen puppetry in a fantasy adventure 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, premiered on Netflix on August 30, 2019, to rave reviews and expands the canon and legacy of this epic universe.

Doyle’s Law: Sci-Fi Thriller, a “Wild Ride”, Straps Readers into Space Station with Cosmos’ Most Irreverent Scientist Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is an intricate, cinematic new thriller that fuses intense paranoia and science fiction, told through the periscope of a bumbling, inept scientist attempting to fix the space station he has royally sabotaged. It’s a story in two parts, as time twists, plots tangle and the depths of human clumsiness become chillingly evident. One critic recently wrote, “This damn book cost me too much needed sleep. It was like a giant puzzle with all the pieces slowly making sense and fitting together. Well done, sir.” When most authors depict the crews of spaceships, they are painted as fearless, totally-in-control heroes using their wit and tenacity to achieve the unthinkable… …But Chief O’Connor, protagonist in Sam Roberts’ ‘Doyle’s Law’ is slightly less noble. In fact, his entire crew suspects him of sabotage and rampant buck-passing. As hostilities ri
