BOOM! Studios has extended its relationship with The Jim Henson Company with a new five-year agreement that provides for BOOM! to publish a minimum of 17 new titles under its Archaia imprint, according to a report in License Global.  The properties covered by the agreement include The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Fraggle Rock, and The Storyteller, among others.

The earlier agreement between the two companies produced 20 titles over the past few years.

This is good positioning for BOOM!, as The Jim Henson Company is working hard to get its properties in front of current audiences.  A new Labyrinth film is going into production this Fall (see “’Labyrinth’ Universe Expands in New Film”), and Netflix has ordered a 10-episode TV series in the world of The Dark Crystal (see “Netflix Plans ‘Dark Crystal’ Series”).
