    I did a little researching, and came across this from July 19, 2005 -- good grief!

    And, OHOH, some early cover image art over at the Cinescape site! They also talk about the Comic Con event, and it looks like the issue will be available to BUY there! woohoo!

    You can buy Return to Labyrinth at Amazon.com, and it also has the full color cover.

    What is the title for the MirrorMask Manga? It looks like the Dark Crystal manga is going to be a series. Hope to get these soon! This is my 400th post! AWESOME! (only 600 more to go.)

    A lot of people are debating over the "Return to Labyrinth" and if it's going to be the form of shounen ai (guy/guy)... Which is NOT how I wanted this series to go. I don't believe that Jareth switched to boys all of a sudden. (Sorry, still stuck on the fact that he liked Sarah.)

    But I'll still read it if it is, and the decision on buying it will be decided then. I expect to see a girl in there, not caring who.

    Maybe while Jareth had Toby, he somehow saw the possibilities Toby had for being the ruler of the goblins.

    I was dumb and waited until the last day at Comic-Con to try to find the Tokyopop booth to buy the manga, so it was all sold out. SO, I still dont have the full idea of what it is about, but I went to the Comic Con panel that was specifically for these Dark Crystal and Labyrinth manga books (which was absolutely packed full and standing room only, by the way, and I was actually almost behind the panelists right next to the stage), and I can tell you that the writers and artists and the Henson people involved demonstrated nothing but affection for both the films. I was particularly moved by the writer of the Labyrinth book, who said his one and only fanfic was a possible sequel to Labyrinth -- the story isn't the same as what is in the manga, but the seeds have been in his mind for a long time.

    I'm still really curious what they have written as a sequel, although I am not used to reading manga style books so I know thats going to throw me off a little. Plus, yeah, I know it's the style, but couldnt they make Jareth just a little more manly? Pretty please?

    Indeed Jareth really looks like a woman now.

    Here are some pics from both the DC and Labyrinth mangas:

    They're using the same drawings for their T-Shirts. Easy way to make some $$$ ... :mad:
