More pieces of the puzzle are revealed in Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance #3, which continues to explore the history of Thra in the time before the Netflix series of the same name. Today, The Beat can reveal an exclusive first look at the new issue, which continues the truly harrowing journey of Ordon and Fara, two Gelfling desperate to save their people, their way of life, and their world.
The current arc of Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is written by Nicole Andelfinger (Adventure Time), illustrated by Matias Basla (Sparrowhawk), colored by Miguel Muerto, and lettered by Jim Campbell. In this penultimate issue (a new creative team takes over for the second arc in January), the stakes are at an all-time high. Can Ordon and Fara turn the tide before it’s too late?
