First Look At The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance #2

On Netflix, one of the best bits of original programming is The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Fan service wouldn’t be complete without a comic series tie-in. It’s always better when they give a little extra story, enriching the TV series. BOOM! Studios has Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance.  I could go on, but let’s just give you the press release and preview pages from BOOM! Studios.

The book hits shops this week, October 30, 2019.
