February 4th, Boom! studios revealed its first look at the next issue of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Based on the Netflix series, this is the six installment in their twelve part series and will be based around the tales of writers Jeffrey Addis and Will Matthews and tell the untold history of key characters from the show.
In the new issue, writer Adam Cesare will present the story of fan favorite Hup and brand-new character Barfinnious who will come to life through the illustrations of artist French Carlomagno. The Podling cook Hup has joined the famous Paladin Barfinnious as a squire and sets out from his small village for the first time! It seems that Hup’s dreams of becoming a Paladin himself are finally within reach. But when Barfinnious is more focused on making some quick coin than on performing acts of bravery, Hup realizes that his trust may have been misplaced.
The series sheds light on the history of the races from the original Dark Crystal movie, adding depth to the Gelflings and the Skeksis as well as many other less touched on races, and the Netflix series has had rave reviews since its inception.
