One of my favorite things to come from The Jim Henson Company in recent years has been the Fraggle Rock comic books. Although the content varied pretty heavily from story to story, the quality was always high, and it was a great way to spotlight the world of the Fraggles, Doozers, and Gorgs each month.
We’re pleased to learn that Archaia will be publishing a new 4-issue miniseries of Fraggle Rock comics, titled Fraggle Rock: Journey to the Everspring! The series will be written by Kate Leth, with art by Jake Myler (who is no stranger to Fraggle art). Unlike the previous Fraggle comics, this miniseries will be one larger story, and not an anthology.
The plot, according to the press release, is as follows:
When the water supply of Fraggle Rock mysteriously runs dry, the Fraggles have to journey deep into the caves of Fraggle Rock to find the fabled Everspring where adventure awaits and no Fraggle has gone before!
The first issue of Fraggle Rock: Journey to the Everspring will be in stores on October 8th.
