About Return to Labyrinth:
Return to Labyrinth is an authorized sequel to the seminal ’80s Fantasy film Labyrinth told in the graphic novel format, published by TOKYOPOP in cooperation with the Jim Henson Company. The series is four volumes long (Vol. 4 coming in 2010!) and tells the story of Toby Williams (the “babe with the power” from the movie) who is now a teenager, who is one day summoned to the Labyrinth to become Jareth’s replacement as the Goblin King. Of course, in the Labyrinth, nothing is quite what it seems, and soon Toby and his new friends find themselves pawns in a battle of wills between Jareth, his former lover Mizumi, and Sarah, the heroine of the film who has somehow lost her memories of the Labyrinth.
About the Author
Jake T. Forbes is one of the leading scholars of Goblinology. After a visitation by the Goblin King himself,* Forbes abandoned a life of editing manga hits like Fruits Basket and Fullmetal Alchemist and dedicated his days to translating the original notebooks of sir Froud and Jones, unraveling the riddles of the Thin White Duke and memorizing every frame in master Henson’s cinematic account of the “Great Goblin Meddling of ’86.” While Forbes has not been to the Labyrinth himself, nor has he spoken with any of the participants, he insists that every word in Return to Labyrinth is true.
