Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal Creations Myths available for the first time in paperback!
A lone wanderer, exotically dressed, stokes a fire and spins an epic tale of adventure, betrayal, and tragedy. It is the legend of Aughra, the world's benevolent guardian, and her impish son Raunip. It is the story of the gentle Gelfling, and the rise and fall of their race. It is the saga of the Urskeks, powerful alien visitors who arrive in peace, but who also harbor a dire secret. But most of all, it is the myth of the Bright Crystal, and how its healing light is ultimately corrupted in darkness.
Brian Froud, the legendary conceptual designer of the classic Jim Henson fantasy film The Dark Crystal, returns to the world he helped create in this first chapter of a trilogy of graphic novels. Featuring plots, character designs, and art direction by Froud, with breathtaking illustrations by Alex Sheikman (Robotika) and Lizzy John (Fraggle Rock), The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths is an incredible exploration of one of the most loved fantasy worlds of all time, and a tribute to the creative genius of Jim Henson's original film.
Jim Henson was an American puppeteer, animator, cartoonist, voice actor, inventor, filmmaker, and screenwriter who achieved worldwide notice as the creator of The Muppets, The Storyteller, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and Fraggle Rock.
