    Lahr and Neffi are two Gelfling who have survived attacks of the Garthim just as Jen and Kira would do in the future The two plans to stage a raid on the Crystal Castle and rescue captured Gelfling After that there is a very interesting section dealing with intrigues among the Skeksis who are vying for power any way they can get it The use of captured Gelfling for Gelfling essense is also covered.Lahr and Neffi get closer to the castle Meanwhile Aughra is in her lab and says it will all Lahr and Neffi are two Gelfling who have survived attacks of the Garthim just as Jen and Kira would do in the future The two plans to stage a raid on the Crystal Castle and rescue captured Gelfling After that there is a very interesting section dealing with intrigues among the Skeksis who are vying for power any way they can get it The use of captured Gelfling for Gelfling essense is also covered.Lahr and Neffi get closer to the castle Meanwhile Aughra is in her lab and says it will all end in tragedy.Just like in The Dark Crystal, a male and a female Gelfling get to the castle and end up going down into a chasm The only difference is Neffi makes Lahr a set of wings rather than carrying him down Again, just like in the film the Chamberlain finds them in the tunnel.Then, just like in the movie, there is another challenge The only difference is that it s a trial by fire rather than a trial by stone The Gelfling get away, but barely Yet we already know what happened to them all, and that is they were all destroyed, ultimately, by the Skeksis because the movie established that Jen and Kira were the only two left.There s also an artist s gallery and a lot of ads for other books

    I would assume I am very biased about this series The Dark Crystal is my favourite movie of all time, so when I found out there was a manga styled series of two it was supposed to be three the series was never finished prequels I jumped with excitement and bought them for a birthday present for myself I read them both in a day and loved them The held the same simple gentleness and good wins over evil the film had It made me feel a littlecomplete reading these books, and they ar I would assume I am very biased about this series The Dark Crystal is my favourite movie of all time, so when I found out there was a manga styled series of two it was supposed to be three the series was never finished prequels I jumped with excitement and bought them for a birthday present for myself I read them both in a day and loved them The held the same simple gentleness and good wins over evil the film had It made me feel a littlecomplete reading these books, and they are just as special as the film

    A fun read and a nice addition the prequel adventures of the Dark Crystal The prophecy that the Gelflings will destroy the Skeksis begins to be revealed in somedetail We begin to seeabout the mysterious link between the gentle Mystics and the greedy Skeksis My criticism of this volume centers on the artwork style On pages featuring groups of Skeksis, I found it sometimes difficult to tell them apart from one another My first impression is that those pages were too evenly gray to A fun read and a nice addition the prequel adventures of the Dark Crystal The prophecy that the Gelflings will destroy the Skeksis begins to be revealed in somedetail We begin to seeabout the mysterious link between the gentle Mystics and the greedy Skeksis My criticism of this volume centers on the artwork style On pages featuring groups of Skeksis, I found it sometimes difficult to tell them apart from one another My first impression is that those pages were too evenly gray toned I understand the Skeksis tend to wear very elaborate costumes, and in the movie some characters were not distinctive enough I was very young when I first saw that , but a bitcontrast to key characters, and perhaps someuse of names as characters talked together, would help alleviate those issues Overall this was a fine sequel in The Garthim Wars I waited very long time for this to finally arrive on shelves, and I do look forward to any future volumes

    Again, the pictures being black and white makes it difficult to tell which Skeksis is talking in each scene It was cool seeing SkekSil scheming against SkekLach, but the Trial by Fire was very anti climactic I did like the creature designs, and seeing all the Gelflings fight for freedom together against the Garthim The end of the narration at the end feels very goofy and I m not really sure how it s supposed to look Again, these manga books don t really fit with the show or with the prequel Again, the pictures being black and white makes it difficult to tell which Skeksis is talking in each scene It was cool seeing SkekSil scheming against SkekLach, but the Trial by Fire was very anti climactic I did like the creature designs, and seeing all the Gelflings fight for freedom together against the Garthim The end of the narration at the end feels very goofy and I m not really sure how it s supposed to look Again, these manga books don t really fit with the show or with the prequel graphic novels and YA novels But they are fun reads

    A lot of what I said in the first review holds true here, too I did find this story slightlysatisfying, but it was frustrating that the Skeksis all looked so much alike in black and white not to mention that their names are so similar, too Still, the story is pretty simplistic, so it was still fairly easy to follow They re all stabbing each other in the back, whatis there to know A lot of what I said in the first review holds true here, too I did find this story slightlysatisfying, but it was frustrating that the Skeksis all looked so much alike in black and white not to mention that their names are so similar, too Still, the story is pretty simplistic, so it was still fairly easy to follow They re all stabbing each other in the back, whatis there to know

    This graphic novel had all the same problems as the first one mainly, the art was not anywhere near where it should be in a Dark Crystal book The story was cliche but capable, but the art made some scenes confusing, especially scenes with the Skeksis The ending was disappointing and didn t really have much going for it Overall, the two books made for a forgettable experience.

    Once again, the story is so so or average with a lot of reminders of the movie.but the artnow that is phenomenal The book is worth checking out just for the art and the art is what gives this book the extra star above average for me And this one had an alternate cover art page listed in the back done by Katie Cook, so I can t wait to hopefully get my copy signed by her.

    I continue to be a glutton for anything that expands the world of the Dark Crystal and this graphic novel delivers on the setting and tone of the world which Jim Henson and a vast creative staff bright into being many moons ago my only criticism is that there wasn tof it to be enjoyed.
