I have just found a reference in this article to the upcoming Labyrinth tie-in comic by Archaia, it doesn't reveal a great deal but does say that the comic will deal with how Jareth became Goblin King- http://blogs.laweekly.com/stylecouncil/2011/08/jim_henson_archaia.php I'm quite excited for the comic in light of this. While there were a lot of good elements to Return To Labyrinth (the series any new comics will inevitably be compared to), I don't think it hung together very well and ultimately it suffered from too much going on. All the sub-plots detracted from the whole, and it didn't help that Toby wasn't a particularly gripping protagonist. Jareth is a far more engaging character, and a comic focused on him should at least be an interesting curiosity if nothing else. RTL is quite an interesting case, as quite a few fans must have brought it (it sold quite well) yet it has had little to no impact on fandom. I have maybe seen four of five RTL influenced fanfictions, as opposed to 1000s that follow original, fan-created story-lines (which are, let's face it, for the most part straightforward (and often dull) Sarah/Jareth fluff). I find it really interesting how fans of a franchise/film/TV series create their own mythology, and that often over-shadows story-lines and plot-points introduced in material sanctioned by the copyright holders. What do you think about the prospect of a comic dealing with Jareth's origins? Does it appeal to you at all?
