With the Dark Crystal, Jim Henson established a fantasy world rich with culture, character and a history we discover little about during the course of the movie. To me, it always felt like it should have been the last in a trilogy, the grand finale for a storyline that could have spanned generations.
If there's one person who can deliver a prequel that lives up to Henson's standard of excellence it's illustrator and creative mastermind Brian Froud, who served as the concept designer for the original Dark Crystal film. The first book in his three-volume graphic novel series entitled The Dark Crystal:Creation Myths is about to be released, and it looks fantastic!
