Barfinnious And Hup’s Adventure Begins In Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance #5 First Look
by James Ferguson
You may have binge-watched The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on Netflix, but that doesn’t mean there’s no story left. BOOM! Studios has a comic book tie-in series of the same name and the second arc is beginning later this month from writer Adam Cesare and artist French Carlomagno, based on stories from Netflix series writers Jeffrey Addis and Will Matthews, delving into the untold histories of key characters from the show. Check out an early preview of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance #5 below:
Hup is a Podling cook who dreams of being a Paladin. When the chivalrous bard Barfinnious comes to Hup’s village with tales of former glory, Hup leaves his small town to follow him. But the longer they travel, the more Hup begins to doubt that Barfinnious is truly who he says he is. Can he trust the smooth-talking bard to help him realize his dreams or will his future as a noble knight end before it ever really began?
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance #5 features a main cover by Mona Finden and a variant connecting cover by Kelly and Nichole Matthews. It’s set for release on January 15th, 2020.
