My Take on The Dark Crystal Official Comics Adaptation

I'm really glad I have this book not only to see a comics adaptation of The Dark Crystal, but also because of the 16 pages of photos taken directly from the movie along with smaller pictures of Brian Froud's original work for the movie. This book is faithful to both the movie and the standard comic stylization.

These are some of the images from the back 15 pages of the book.
