    Hey, that would be a good title for a follow-up to any kind of manga (or anime cartoon, or reality show). I can see t now: Return to Labyrinth 2: The Crap Continues.

    Hehe! Toby has a haircut like Jareth now! Other than the hair, the cover is gorgeous. Why couldn't those in charge have hired a better writer and artist? Many of us on this board could have written a story that was more true to the Labyrinth world and illustrated as well.

    I don't mind the story. The story is good. I'm not a big anime fan, so I can do without the art.

    I'm looking forward to my book, but most definitely looking forward to the Dark Crystal book.

    The style really isn't all the anime-ish. The cover is, but the comic itself is more independent American comic.

    Please, please, gentle readers, do not look at the poor drawings in the Return to Labyrinth book and think anime and manga look like that. That's the reaction I fear most from RtL. You're entitled to like or dislike anime and manga as you wish, but please don't believe that the stuff drawn for RtL vol. 1 is any kind of example of them.

    I've seen different forms of Anime and Manga, and I'm just not really a big fan of it either way. I've been editing a comic book for 12 years that is loosely based on that art style, but Americanized--and it's some of the most beautiful work ever.

    The one thing I have to give credit for, though, is the amount of detailed work and the smooth clear lines in Anime and Manga! The line work is beautiful!

    Okay. So ... how did Toby get back into the labyrinth? And why on earth did Jareth give up his throne? Seems to me he LIKED being in charge. And let's face it! He makes a much cooler king. :cool:

    What's Toby going to do on the throne? Scream his head off? :p

    My sister and I happen to love Japanese manga. Depending on the type, of course. There's nothing wrong with releasing a "Labyrinth" manga, so long as the art and the story are up to par.

    The story is good, I'm not keen on the art, but I'm buying the books to support the license and the title. I've never been much for manga/anime but it's always been my own personal take on it. All my friends love it, though.

    I am eagerly awaiting the Dark Crystal books, too! The art, that I've seen, is awesome there--looks like the characters from the movie for sure. I hope the story will be as good.

    Has anyone read Vol 2 yet? How does it measure up and a more detailed plot synopsis would be great!

    I'm waiting on Amazon to send mine when it's available. Yippee! Heh--seriously am anxiously awaiting the book.

    Oh, it's so tempting, but I want to wait on my book.

    I've already got mine -- found a copy at a local store. I enjoyed it. A lot happens in this one, with some secondary characters coming to the fore. I won't spoil the ending, but it's a double cliffhanger: two unexpected developments, happening in rapid succession. I have no idea where they're going with either one.

    And now I have to wait for Volume #3 to come out... sigh!

    I know! First Moppet, then Sarah...but the fact is WHEN did the Sarah portion happen in relation to everything. That is the question that might answer the former.

    It's been a long wait between volumes, but I think it's paid off because the art has significantly improved.

    It's also nice to know that they've taken fan feedback onboard and consequently expanded the series to four volumes to fit in more of the stuff that people hoped to see in the sequel.

    WOOT! I'm too excited about it. I hope when I make my Post Office Box run on Wednesday it's there!
