ROCKET SALVAGE #1 Main Cover by Bachan

WHY WE (Archaia) LOVE IT: When writer/animator Yehudi Mercado (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: UNIVERSAL WEAPON; PANTALONES, TX) came to us with a dysfunctional family drama about three clones running a rocket ship repair shop, we were already on board. Throw in some spaceport street-racing and a few alien gangsters—just tell us when to start our engines!
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Did we mention space racing?! With blow-your-gamma-gasket sequences from artist Bachan (IMAGINE AGENTS), this series has both action and heart. Fans of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, BRAVEST WARRIORS, and SPEED RACER will want to pick up a wrench and strap in for the ride.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Primo Rocket used to be the fastest speeder-racer in the galaxy, but after a crash that sealed the fate of his space-station-city home, Rio Rojo, Primo has resigned himself to life as a lowly spaceship salvage yard owner. However, his two “kids”—harvest clone Beta, and Beta’s genius girl-clone Zeta—can’t seem to keep out of trouble. When the dysfunctional family suddenly becomes the target of an intergalactic manhunt, the family has to come together to save their home.

e6bbd4e2-c21c-45e8-ba69-2ee82af0a7fdWHY WE (Archaia) LOVE IT: We longed to read these long out-of-print novelizations of LABYRINTH, THE DARK CRYSTAL, and THE STORYTELLER, so we brought them back in all-new hardcover editions. Now, here they are all in one set for the first time ever.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: We worked with the Jim Henson Archives to ensure that each of the novelizations comes with never-before-seen material. Fans of the classic ’80s films LABYRINTH and THE DARK CRYSTAL will love the never-before-seen art by legendary illustrator Brian Froud and the unprecedented look into Jim Henson’s personal journal, while fans of THE STORYTELLER will find all-new illustrations depicting moments from the nine fairy tales and photos from the set of the award-winning television show.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT: All-new hardcover editions of three novelizations of beloved works by Jim Henson are collected into one stunning, slipcase set. These new editions of LABYRINTH: THE NOVELIZATION, THE DARK CRYSTAL: THE NOVELIZATION, and THE STORYTELLER: THE NOVELIZATION feature rare and never-before-seen material from the Jim Henson Archives, offering an in-depth look behind the scenes of Jim Henson’s imagination at work.

Mother, knitter, writer, bookseller, and geek by day but at night I revert to the 10 year old that I really am. I spend my spare time plotting world domination using an army of knitters. Got to keep the weavers in check.
