    Wow, that coupled with a new comic from an unproduced Storyteller episode written by Jim and Jerry Juhl?!? FANTASTIC!

    Yes, fantastic stuff indeed and very well drawn! I hope it sells well, so we may get more like these.
    Maybe even a movie prequel someday... who knows? :)

    Saw the Dark Crystal comic at the comic book store Yesterday. It looks very nie and its hardcover...but twenty bucks in one shot seemed a bit steep. I was hoping for several 3 to 4 dollar issues rather than graphic novels right up front. It does look nice though and I know Froud was involved so thats a plus.

    Yes, definitely woth it. Here is a review I wrote:

    I enjoyed the book very much, overall the artwork and story is excellent!
    I love the compositions and lighting/shading.

    However there are things which I do not like as much:

    - There is not enough text. Some important details left unexplained.
    For ex. : Aughra got a third "eye" burnt into her forehead. But why?

    - The story "How Gelfling Maids got their wings". Aughra sticks feathers in her back... Sorry, but ***? I hope this is just a joke. Also the Gelfling portrait there is not really good.

    - Aughra should not have a son. The WORLD OF THE DARK CRYSTAL book says: "Of the race of Aughra, I WAS alone, the first and last."

    - Some details look like we are on earth (not on Thra): For example the Gelflings belt buckle looks exactly like a human made one. Or the Gelflings sailboat.

    I think it's just supposed to be a book of myths, not an actual history. The wing thing sounds like a classic myth explanation.

    Kind of excited. Never liked the Dark Crystal as much as Fraggle Rock or Labyrinth, but I might want to check this out.

    Yes, this could be the case.

    Release date should be December 25, 2012.

    It will feature younger versions of the Skeksis and Mystics plus a lot more Brian Froud sketches. Sounds great!
