Ah, “Fraggle Rock”, you never, ever let me down. I was born in 1984, and I managed to catch the tail end of “Fraggle Rock”‘s rock TV before it went off air entirely. I’m really hoping that this will be the revival of the franchise and bring it back to TV/pop culture for a new generation. And the best part? This graphic novel version stays true to the original, and brings back some very fond memories from childhood.

All of the silliness from the original franchise has been reborn in comic format,

I love Fraggle Rock and this collection reminded me of how much I enjoy the show. The collection itself is uneven and the artwork varies from quite good to...rather bad. But each one made me wish that I had a pack of Bazooka Joe bubble gum, a pile of pixie sticks, and an issue of an Archie comic to read when I finished this collection.

It definitely brings back fond memories and fans of the show should rejoice in seeing a fun collection that they can share with their children without fear of the

This reminds me so much of watching cartoons upstairs at my grandparents home with my cousins. We're all grown up with our own children but I would still happily sit down to watch this show.

It was all utter nonsense mixed with a new perspective on the world and good clean messages. The book is the same 💛

I'm a child from the 80s and because of this i grew up with the magic of Jim Henson. Thus, Fraggle Rock holds a special place in my heart. If you're not familiar with these colorful rodents, I ask you, can you dance your cares away? Put your worry off for another day. Will you let the music play? If you can do all this, Jim Henson and Archaia comics invite you to come down at Fraggle Rock.



This massive collection contains the first three Fraggle Rock comics (bonus: plus the Free Comic Book day s

I thought this was an excellent graphic novel for young readers! I always enjoyed Fraggle Rock as a kid, so I was excited to see it being returned for another generations enjoyment. You won't be disappointed in this book. Each story is done by a different author/illustrator which makes the stories more special. The text is meant for middle level readers, but even young readers will enjoy the illustrations. ...more

I loved the Fraggles as a kid, had several books and can still sing you the theme song. So many of these episodes were also watched at my Grandparents house because they had HBO! I re-watched some of Fraggle Rock several years ago and found for me it didn't hold up to childhood memories.

I recently read the comic Fraggle Rock: Journey to Everspring. The best part of that comic was its art.

This novel, has different authors and illustrators for each comic. Some of the stories within in this collect

When I found out there was going to be a comic book series based on one of my beloved shows from my childhood, I knew I had to read it. I was a little trepidatious because I've read some Muppets comics before, and the magic doesn't really seem to come across in the print dimension. So, yes, I was wary that a show that is so steeped in song and dance would not translate well to this medium.

But my cares were danced away when I read this graphic novel - because it was perfectly adorable. Everything

It's been a long time since I've watched or visited in any manner Fraggle Rock, but even so this felt like a perfect representation of the memories. The characters are spot on, behaving as they always did (and I appreciated the quick bios of the main characters at the beginning), and having Saturday morning adventures that end with respect and camaraderie. There are no real villains, just people functioning on different levels. The stories are warm and fun, even as you have your resident pessimi ...more

Fraggle Rock Volume I by Various Authors
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Fraggle Rock is from The Muppets creator Jim Henson. Fraggles are known to be a curious group that can’t seem to stay out of trouble. They are a close community that is full of love and looks out for one another. The trash heap of wisdom is guarded by the Gorgs so watch out because they like to eat the Fraggles.

This graphic novel is well illustrated with bright colorful pages

My full review is here on my personal website. I'll post a few excerpts here, though:

4.5 out of 5.0 stars

The very worst thing about this book is that the animation is different throughout the book. Each story is done by different people and, while it’s all drawn quite well, the differences do stand out.

The very best thing about this book is FRAGGLES! I grew up watching the Fraggles on TV! I love the Fraggles and finding them in graphic novel form was a dream come true! Almost as incredible as fi

Here's a collection of short Fraggle Rock comics. Why? I dunno. I guess it's cute, but unless you're a huge Fraggle Rock fan, I don't think you're going to get much out of this. Not a lot of ideas or much of a message besides HEY, FRAGGLES and Fraggle Rock's omnipresent flavor of Canadian crypto-socalist utopian thinking where little green people who really enjoy their work come and build things out of food for weird monsters to eat.
(Also, Red is still a insufferable jerk, surprise.)

A fun and clever graphic novel that is clearly inspired by the sentiments that make Fraggle Rock such a beloved show for so many. While some stories seemed almost too close to those from the original series, most felt derivative in exactly the way a fan would want: they provide reminders of why we love the show in the show in the first place.

I got all caught up in the hype and forgot I didn't really like the TV show. Not sure why I thought I'd like the world better in this form, but I didn't really. Not the fault of the comic, just not my taste. I like the Doozers, but Red completely creeps me out. ...more

It was fun to read Fraggle stories, but the stories didn't feel right. Too much reliance on comic book narrative took away some of the magic. Would have been interesting to see more of the original story tellers involved in the shaping of the stories. The art was fun. ...more

I grew up with the TV show, was very fond of it but realised that I forget a lot of things about the Fraggle Rocks and their universe. It's a pleasure to join them in new adventures and lessons. The drawings are really good and true to my memories. I enjoyed it a lot! ...more

A trip down memory lane. I don't remember Red being quite so annoying. The artwork is a little more "artsy" than the Fraggle Rock: Classics. ...more
