    July 18th 2003 Entertainment Weekly, page 25:

    "Children of the 80's should fondly recall "Labyrinth" and "The Dark Crystal," Jim Henson's moody cinematic forays. Now the late Muppeteer's company has tapped writer Neil Gaiman (the "Sandman" comics) and director-illustrator Dave McKean for a Muppet-free feature (due in 2004) about a circus performer, Helena (Stephanie Leonidas) caught between kingdoms of light and dark. Here, Dark Queen Gina McKee ponders Helena's fate. Gaiman reports that postings on his website have been lively: "Somebody said this couldn't be at all like "Labyrinth" because it didn't have the bulge in David Bowie's trousers."

    ...and there's a nice full-page pic of the Dark Queen in a sort of masquerade mask looking into a sort of crystal ball thingy at a young woman.

    Looks very cool--I don't know much about this, but if they're comparing it to Dark Crystal and Labyrinth my interest is piqued.
