How do you solve a problem like no water? Writer Kate Leth (Bravest Warriors) and artist Jake Myler (Fraggle Rock) set out to take us even deeper underground in an adventure that promises to be full of wonder and unknown horrors in the four-issue series FRAGGLE ROCK: JOURNEY TO THE EVERSPRING.
“They call themselves Fraggles, you’ll find them in gaggles, and though they seem perfectly strange, they’re loyal and caring, insistent on sharing…and their lives are all about to change.
The first issue got my attention immediately with its snazzy and catchy rhymes, appropriately kicking off this adventure. Gobo is determined to accomplish something great, and sets out on a quest to build or invent a contraption, fix something, or just solve a general problem, but he’s just not sure what exactly. That is until he runs into Red and discovers a drought that threatens all of Fraggle Rock. Gobo sets out to investigate the mysterious and sudden disappearance of the water supply, and must travel even further underground to the Everspring.
Leth has an uncanny ability for telling all-ages stories, and after reading Everspring, I can honestly say that this truly has a boundless appeal to it. She absolutely understands the mind and imagination of comic book readers, and has proved to us that we can enjoy a comic that we may have bought for our children. The art in this is radiantly breathtaking, and has immediately made me a fan of Jake Myler. With gorgeous colors and clever writing, Journey to Everspring is a no-brainer for Fraggle Rock and comic book fans alike.
