Fraggle Rock is returning to Boom! Studios, the publisher has announced. The Jim Henson Company and Boom will be releasing a series of four issues that contain standalone stories celebrating the properties’ 35 anniversary and the first will arrive in shops in May 2018.
The series will be presented in an 8″ x 8″ format that will appeal both to older and younger generations of readers, the publisher says.
Our first issue will be written and illustrated in watercolor by Jared Cullum (Jim Henson’s Labyrinth 2017 Special), and will feature Mokey Fraggle “losing her love for creating her art” . Trying to find her inspiration again will require the help of her friends.
The first issue will features a cover by Jared Cullum, along with a connecting subscription cover by Jake Myler (Fraggle Rock: Journey to the Everspring). Each issue of the series will have a connecting subscription cover featuring a different Fraggle. Retailers who order all four subscription covers will unlock an orderable additional fifth connecting cover that will be shipped with Issue #4.
Jared Cullum says:
Fraggle Rock was an exceptionally unique show where the characters were never 2-dimensional. They have authentic feelings, character flaws, and learned, as we do in life, through stumbling to the right decision in a very immersive and connective way. It will always resonate with our hearts.
Print copies of Fraggle Rock #1 will be available for sale in May 2018 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the Boom! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the Boom! Studios app.
