Humble Bundle Launches Jim Henson Comic Bundle


Jim Henson was definitely a humble man. His talents were immense, yet by all appearance, he wasn't a man keen on bragging. That sense of humility makes the announcement of the BOOM!

Noteworthy creators who have contributed include Joshua Dysart, Kate Leth, Nate Cosby, Chris Eliopoulos, Marjorie Liu, Ron Marz, Jeff Parker, Ramón Pérez, former Henson conceptual designer Brian Froud and many more. Customers can name their price for Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal: The Novelization, Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths Vol. 1 & 2, Fraggle Rock Classics Vol. 1 & 2, Fraggle Rock Vol. 1 & 2 and Fraggle Rock: Journey To The Everspring #1-4. Those who pay more than the average price will also receive Jim Henson's The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow, Jim Henson's The Storyteller Vol. 1, Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Witches #1-4, Jim Henson's The Storyteller: The Novelization and Jim Henson's Labyrinth: The Novelization.
