Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads
My Review of VOLUME ONE
Title: Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths, Volume 2
Authors: Brian Froud, Joshua Dysart, Alex Sheikman, and Lizzy John
Year Published: 2013
Synopsis: Part two of a three-part graphic novel prequel series delving into the origins of the Skeksis, Mystics, Gelflings, the world of Thra and the Dark Crystal itself. Spanning a time period from thousands of years ago to right up to the start of the original film, this graphic novel epic will tell the definitive origin of Dark Crystal, under the supervision of The Jim Henson Company and The Dark Crystal concept designer Brian Froud.
In this volume, readers will see the story behind the cracking of the crystal.
Review: This is the second volume in the three part graphic novel trilogy of Creation Myths set in the world of The dark Crystal. I really enjoyed the first one and this one matched my interest. There are more connections to the original movie in this one. The Skeksis and Mystics were always so cool in the movie and now more information on their origin is revealed.
This graphic novel continues this trilogy very nicely. If you have not read the first one and you are a Jim Henson fan, go get it now! I give this volume a 4/5.
