    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 25, 2019

    Matias Balta captures the world of The Dark Crystal visually in this issue. Everything looks amazing and all of the characters are dynamic throughout. I love how this first issue looks and hope this aesthetic carries over throughout the series. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Sep 26, 2019

    Nicole Andelfinger clearly has a good grasp on this world and who these characters are, and Matias Basla's art is just perfect for Jim Henson's world. I'm really excited to learn even more about Thra's history and Ordon and Fara's part in it, in particular. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Sep 25, 2019

    There's a lot to enjoy about the issue, however, but it does leave you wanting more. I do believe that it will set up the arc of the whole story nicely. Ordon was a stand out character during the show and I'm hoping they take the time to elevate his backstory. A solid start, but with much expectation for a more intense story moving forward.

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Oct 13, 2019

    A good start to a story with some very sketchy visuals. A quest is begun and I'm looking forward to where it's going. I'm not thrilled by the unfinished look to the artwork and colors that come off as very bland. I'm hoping the visuals improve as this goes on, otherwise they could mar the unfolding story.
