For most of a certain generation, the TV show Fraggle Rock is a beloved childhood memory. Beyond its basic and undeniable Henson charm, it was also a show with a lot of smart, complex lessons for kids and adults. For this reason -- as well as because some of those children have now grown up to be parents -- it's no surprise that comics publisher Archaia jumped at the chance to publish Fraggle comics.
Now that Archaia is a part of Boom Studios, the publisher's approach to Fraggle comics has shifted a little, with the first-ever Fraggle Rock comic miniseries, Fraggle Rock: Journey to the Everspring. Written by Kate Leth and drawn by Jake Myler, it's the longest Fraggle comic yet. ComicsAlliance sat down with thes creators to talk about making Fraggle comics, working with Henson, creating new characters, and, of course, their favorite Fraggles.

Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”

It's funny, the connections a Fraggle can trigger. Just last night as I sat down catch up on some sci-fi drama "Fringe" style, a few pieces of info from some of my favorite ComicsAlliance posts collided, resulting in an epiphany of sorts: Wash of "Firefly" and "Serenity" looks just like Wembley Fraggle
