Originally airing during the 1980s, the fertile imagination of Jim Henson was perfectly captured in the international hit, Fraggle Rock. This series, which remains a much-loved favorite to this day, follows the adventures of the Fraggles, a race of short, furry creatures living a carefree existence in magical caves. BOOM! Studios continues to celebrate the world of Fraggle Rock in various limited series. 

Now, Fraggle Rock #2 is being showcased in premium picture book format with Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock: The Rough Side of the Rock. It’s the annual “Splish-Splash Friend Bash” at Fraggle Pond and all of Fraggle Rock is invited! Unfortunately, not everyone is in a friendly mood. While preparing for the party, Gobo finds himself in an unexplored cavern where he runs into some bullies. When these unfriendly Fraggles crash the party, Gobo, Boober, and the other Fraggles will have to look out for one another and come up with a plan to help everyone get along.

Written and illustrated by Jay Fosgitt (Bodie Troll), with colors by Joana Lafuente and letters by Mike Fiorentino, this book celebrates the timeless television series with an inspiring story of acceptance and friendship for fans of all ages.
