Return to Labyrinth Vol. 4 is in the middle of being drawn, and as promised, I bring you the first ever preview pic! This is the “splash page” for Chapter 1, titled “Oubliette.” It’s just a thumbnail, much rougher than the final art, but it’s still quite a beautiful composition. From this sketch, artist Chris Lie will move on to a final “pencil” version, which then gets inked and finally toned. I’ll share the updated versions as they move through production and are approved by the Jim Henson Company.
Next time, I’ll share some juicy penciled pages, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy this tantalizing first image! Feel free to speculate on the image or title in the comments.
