Before Sarah braved the Labyrinth to save her brother, another young woman sought to save a young boy named Jareth from the clutches of the Goblins. Set in 18th-century Venice, Italy, Jim Henson's Labyrinth is a striking look into the history of the Labyrinth itself, and what happens to the little boys who don't get rescued. This is the untold history of the Goblin King. ~Amazon Book Description
This comic takes place while Jareth is waiting to see if Sarah will reach the center of the Labyrinth. To keep a fussy Toby calm Jareth begins a tale about a woman named Maria who has to go on the same journey when her son Jareth is taken by the Goblin King. I liked that Jareth was shown as being such an unreliable narrator, as he tells the story with a definite prejudice to how he sees things. It was also interesting to read more about Jareth's and the Labyrinth's past. Plus the former Goblin King was actually very terrifying, so I was honestly worried about baby Jareth. The art was very lovely although some times the expressions on the characters faces tended towards the ridiculous. Overall I enjoyed it and it made me want to watch the movie again so that is always a plus!
And with that I have a blackout! \o/
