The Jim Henson Company and Archaia Studios Press have announced that their first Fraggle Rock miniseries is to debut in April.

Issue #1 of 3 will be followed by the release of Archaia’s Free Comic Book Day flip book, featuring Fraggle Rock and Mouse Guard, which can be picked up at no cost on May 1.

Stephen Christy, director of development for Archaia, said: "All of us at Archaia are so proud of how Fraggle Rock is turning out.

"We’re taking a lot of unique approaches with this series, from launching it in our popular 8" x 8" Mouse Guard format to bringing in incredibly talented indie creators such as Jeffrey Brown, creator of Incredible Change-Bots, and Jeremy Love, creator of Bayou, to share their visions of this classic Jim Henson Company creation.

"We’re working very hard to make sure this book is a fresh take for fans of the show and will also appeal to new audiences, and I’m excited that readers will be able to fully dive into the world of Fraggle Rock with issue #1 in April and our Free Comic Book Day special in May."

The two companies are also partnering on a Dark Crystal and Labyrinth miniseries for release later in 2010.
