The Lost Legacy of Muppets Creator Jim Henson Revealed

Archaia Entertainment, the masterminds behind such critically-acclaimed graphic novels as Mouse Guard and Return of the Dapper Men will be hosting a panel celebrating the life and accomplishments of Jim Henson. Archaia Entertainment, along with The Henson Company, have been working to keep Henson’s legacy alive through comic adaptations of beloved properties like The Dark Crystal and Fraggle Rock, bringing these magical worlds to a new generation.

 At Comic Con, the extremely rare “Alexander the Grape,” a short film from the 1960’s when Henson was just beginning to discover his calling, will be shown in its entirety. The panel will also display rare photographs, historical material, and feature a presentation by the Henson archivist, Karen Falk. The event will lead up to an exciting announcement from Archaia and The Henson Company about their collaboration on A Tale of Sand, an deeply ambitious graphic novel based off of a long lost screenplay by Jim Henson, which was recently uncovered by Falk. Karen Falk and Archaia Editor-in-Chief Stephen Christy will be giving attendees an advance look at the book, including stunning art from artist Ramon Perez.

 The panel will be happening on Sunday, July 24 from 10:00am – 10:00am, in room 4.
