Go “Beneath The Dark Crystal” At BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios and The Jim Henson Company have announced Jim Henson’s Beneath the Dark Crystal #1, an all-new twelve issue series debuting in July 2018.

Writer Adam Smith and rising-star artist Alexandria Huntington unveil a new sequel to the hit film as Kensho arrives at the Crystal Castle where he was once a lowly acolyte and is asked to accept the responsibility as leader of Thra. But he will have to rectify sins of the past before he can decide if he – or anyone – is fit to rule. Meanwhile, the realm of Mithra is being rebuilt by the newly-crowned Ember Queen Thurma, whose own quest to decide the future of her land is thrown into question when another Fireling makes a claim as the true heir to the throne.

Jim Henson’s Beneath the Dark Crystal #1 features a main cover by Benjamin Dewey, along with variant covers by Eisner Award winners David Petersen, Ramón K. Pérez, and Dave McKean.
