BOOM!/ARCHAIA tease Jim Henson studios comics for 2014.

BOOM! Studios’ and it’s acquired imprint of ARCHAIA have teased new JIM HENSON material for 2014. In the past Archai has done such Henson properties as Fraggle Rock, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, and the first two volumes of THE DARK CRYSTAL prequel/histories graphic novels.

This is interesting, considering Jim Henson Studios are part of the Disney family, which recently announced that they would be moving the Disney acquired STAR WARS comics to the Disney owned MARVEL COMICS.  Personally, I’ve loved Archaia’s Henson projects, especially the Dark Crystal books, and am glad that the project will stay in house.
