With the new Netflix The Dark Crystal series - Age of Resistance, scheduled for the endo of the month, you might want to catch up with all the lore. And if you love comics even better, since the latest Humble Bundle explores the world of Jim Henson via comic books from Boom!.

Jim Henson is nothing short of a creative genius and the man responsible for the Muppets, Labyrinth, his work on Sesame Street, and the Jim Henson company. He co-directed the original Dark Crystal movie, and was in charge of the amazing animatronic characters behind it.

If you know Humble Bundle you know that it provides games, books and comics in cut-price bundles. Starting at $1, the Jim Henson & Friends by Boom! Bundle gives you a number of first issues to start with, but also Jim Henson's The Storyteller Vol. 1 and Munchkin Vol. 1.

It seems $8 is what you need to pay if you actually want to dig into The Dark Crystal mythos, with Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths Vol. 1 appearing here, alongside some interesting titles such as Cursed Pirate Girl Annual and Iscariot.

It is, however, the $15 bundle that gives you all the rest of the good stuff. Here lies Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal Artist Tribute and Power of the Dark Crystal Vol. 1, while also containing Labyrinth: Coronation Vol. 1, which tells the origin story of the Goblin King, portrayed by David Bowie in the original movie.

The Dark Crystal is, of course, not to everyone’s taste, so if good food is what you crave, it’s worth it to work your way to the World Foods by Lonely Planet bundle. Yum.
