While Archaia does publish comic books, they are best known for their graphic novels.  (They will even publish a hardcover for Free Comic Book Day in 2012!)  So it’s no surprise to see a lot of great titles from them, be they creator- or corporate-owned titles.

Marvel and Disney might own the rights to the Muppets, but Archaia has a good relationship with The Jim Henson Company, publishing everything else (“whatnot” in Muppet parlance) available in the archives, including a long forgotten screenplay!  Plus there’s the “classic” Fraggle Rock comics originally published by Marvel/Star Comics back in 1985 (oh, the irony!) featuring art by Marie Severin!

Oh, and if that isn’t enough, how about a new title by Marjane Satrapi?  Or the Dare Detectives?  Or Miranda Mercury?

All links direct to Archaia’s excellent website, and many titles have previews!
