漫画 MANGA: Jim Henson's Return to Labyrinth


Forbes, J.T. (2006). Jim Henson's return to labyrinth. (Vol. 1). Los Angeles, CA: TokyoPop.

Genre: Shonen, Fantasy

Reading/Interest Level: Ages 12+

Similar Titles: Labyrinth [DVD]

Plot: "Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered…" is how the story goes. This time though, the little baby is grown into a teen, and it is time for Toby to return to the Labyrinth. King Jareth, the Goblin King has been watching over Toby and knows that he should be his heir. As Toby discovers the secrets of the Labyrinth, he begins feeling as if he really belongs there. Unfortunately, not everyone likes the idea of Toby having that much power and King Jareth's enemies come out of hiding to threaten Toby.

Personal Thoughts: This manga series that has been inspired by a classic Jim Henson film is full of fantastical creatures who reside in the Labyrinth. Fans of the movie will recognize some of their favorites and will appreciate this continuation into the maze.
