Three New Labyrinth Comics Coming Soon!

Just when you think there couldn't be any more new Labyrinth items celebrating the film's 30th Anniversary, along comes Archaia who has announced not one, not two, but three new comics!

The first, Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: 30th Anniversary Special, will be out in August. The 48-page comic will be comprised of short stories based on some of the ancillary characters like Sir Didymus, Ludo, and Ambrosius. Most of the stories were previously released for past Free Comic Book Days, though two new stories will be included as well.

Labyrinth: Tales will follow in September. The book will be a square-bound picture children’s style book featuring short stories illustrated by Cory Godbey. Some of the stories will also be featured in the 30th Anniversary Special, but more in a more kid-friendly format. This will be available at book stores such as Barnes & Noble, while the 30th Anniversary Special will only be at comic book stores.

In November, Archaia will release Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Artist Tribute. It'll be an oversized art book featuring work by comic artists Mike Allred, Dave McKean, Eric Powell, Jill Thompson, David Mack, Faith Erin Hicks as well as online fans who created art based on their love of the Labyrinth world.
