Your First Look at JIM HENSON’S THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE #7

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

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

In JIM HENSON’S THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE #7, available in stores March 2020, writer Adam Cesare, artist French Carlomagno, and letterer Jim Campbell present the story of fan favorite Hup and brand-new character Barfinnious.

After some hard times on the road, Paladin-turned-bard Barfinnious and his noble Podling squire Hup finally get to relax and enjoy their hero’s welcome at a festive Spriton village. But a mysterious Beast is lurking in the shadows, threatening the lives of the Gelfling villagers. What should be a simple fight for a former Paladin soon turns dangerous, and the truth behind Barfinnious’ grift begins to emerge.

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 #7 (OF 12) features a main cover by illustrator Mona Finden, a variant cover by acclaimed artist Conor Nolan (Jim Henson’s Storyteller: Giants), and a connecting cover by artists Kelly and Nichole Matthews (R.L. Stine’s Just Beyond).
