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.

JIM HENSON’S THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE #6 (OF 12) features a main cover by illustrator Mona Finden, a variant cover by acclaimed Mouse Guard creator David Petersen, and a connecting cover by artists Kelly and Nichole Matthews (R.L. Stine’s Just Beyond).
