    Yep that's right! A new Fraggle Rock Comic coming out this year!
    It's written By Kate Leth who has drawn stuff for AdventureTime and Bravest Warriors, as well as her own very popular webcomic Kate or Die.
    It's drawn by me (Jake Myler) and I've been to Fraggle Rock before - but also I think the art is going to be on another level then before (I've gotten in a bit of practice since then).
    So yeah! Fraggle Rock!

    I'm thrilled. Very. The Sesame Street Comics seem to have disappeared after the first issue, and there hasn't been a Muppet comic presence since.

    And I really like how they're doing a connected story this time.

    He most exciting part of this writeup, for me, was that they would be telling a multi-issue story this time rather than a handful of four- to ten-page gags. The Fraggles live in a rich world, and I think there's a lot of room for longer, more in-depth adventures. As a fanfic writer I've tried my hand at perpetrating stories of this nature, and I'm overjoyed to see that an official publication will be going in this direction!

    Personally, I'm just glad these comic books are comic book shaped this time. I could never track down the kid's book shaped comic protector sleeves.

    Oh the first issue is out October 8th! But it's not availiable for preorder yet I think- although comic book stores may be able to do it... unsure about that though.

    Thanks! I want this to be the best fraggle rock drawings I can muster. No slacking from me!

    Yeah I think they found pretty good success in telling a continuous story in Adventuretime and Regular show comics- so this is something that I think should work and I can guarantee the story is pretty great.

    100 times yes! and it should make a good collected book if that happens (which I'm sure will happen). with the normal book proportions.

    OH OH! Also if you happen to be going to San Diego ComicCon later this month. There's a cool Panel that will outline all the new projects that Archaia will be doing with JimHenson company! Here's the Blurb if anyone's interesting in going!
    It seems like people on this little forum might enjoy it!

    The Jim Henson Company: Upcoming Comics with Archaia
    Thus far in 2014, Archaia-an award-winning imprint of BOOM! Studios-has published beautiful hardcover reprints of the novelizations of favorite Henson properties Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, and The Storyteller. Panelists reveal details of Archaia’s Henson publishing plan for the rest of the year, including sneak peeks at a never-before-seen project from the Henson Archives. Featuring panelists Jeff Stokely (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches), Jake Myler (Fraggle Rock), Ian Herring (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand), and Shane-Michael Vidaurri (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Witches) and moderated by Henson line editor at Archaia Rebecca “Tay” Taylor.

    Heya! There's a Interview of me and Kate over on Comic Book Resources! Also there's a pretty exciting other interview that may appear later this week on a certain website Muppet enthusiasts frequent.

    Neato! I can't wait to read this!

    (Oh...it was Red who asked Boober what death was like. That was after they'd switched roles, with Red being frightened and out of her element and Boober being calm.)

    Love the suggestion for the comic about Uncle Matt's missing baloobius, hahaha.

    Matt had a full baloobius when he was young. Maybe Fraggle pattern baldness happens at both ends? Has anyone seen the World's Oldest Fraggle's baloobius?

    Fun trivia: Fraggle baloobiuses are the same color as their hair. The exception is Convincing John, who has a gray baloobius and black hair. I suspect he dyes his hair.

    Ohyeah! Darn it I totally knew that!

    Whoa!!! Good Fraggle Terminology! I was actually thinking about using that word "Baloobius" but then figured 99.9% of the people reading would have no idea what I was talking about. :sigh:

    That's an interesting fact- and that shows that the puppet creators really thought about every detail- I think you're right about convincing John actually. He seems like the type!
