The Dark Crystal Creation Myths Book 1

Hardback, graphic novel format. An individual is telling others various stories about Thra. This starts out with the birth of Aughra who came from the planet herself. She became a teacher and protector of all living forms. The Great Crystal itself created her.

She was particularly devoted to the Gelfling. Somehow she ends up with a son (not explained how) and the son turns out to be basically a trouble-maker although he can detect something about the Urskeks that Aughra can't.

The Urskeks arrive and at first are very helpful. They are trying to control the darkness within them (and we see how this came out in the movie.) Aughra's son tries basically to get a revolution against them going.

There's also the free comic book day story and some artwork. Altogether quite well done.
