Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Jennifer Feigelman
Picking up where the 1986 film Labyrinth left off, young Toby—the infant Jennifer Connelly is seeking in the film—has grown into a surly teenager who seems to get whatever he wishes for, though his wishes come with a price. When Toby wishes that he could ace a history exam he did not study for, he suddenly finds a crib sheet with answers on his desk, which promptly leads to his getting caught cheating. Determined to set things straight, Toby writes a stellar paper for his history class. When Toby prints the paper, he sees it whisked off by a strange troll-like creature. Toby takes off after it and finds himself standing at the gates of the labyrinth, just like his sister did, years earlier. While a promising concept, this new manga falls somewhat short in its story development, though one hopes more will be revealed in following installments. Fans of the film may be a little disappointed in this volume: Toby's character is not well constructed, leaving readers wanting to know more about where he came from and to fill in the gap from his abduction as a baby to now; and while many of the creatures from the original make an appearance between chapters, few are prominently featured in the story. Despite these flaws, this volume will probably be popular with manga and fantasy fans alike, and the preview of Tokyopop's next movie-to-manga, The Dark Crystal, will whet the appetite of young fans.
Library Journal
The 1986 fantasy movie Labyrinthbegins with Sarah jolted out of her teen-anomie when the Goblin King kidnaps her little brother—she must go into the Labyrinth to rescue him. The three-volume sequel concerns brother Toby. Now a blasé teen himself, he's unknowingly been protected by the Goblin King, who has designs on him as an heir apparent. When sucked abruptly into the Labyrinth world, Toby wants none of this business. But as with Sarah, and with scores of manga teens before him abducted into Elsewhere, it isn't as simple as that. Toby must confront a wealth of strange beings and circumstances and somehow grow up and deal with them. The plot develops with a satisfying mix of odd characters and page-turning action. Not as charming as the original—it's a boy story, not a girl story this time—it holds its own as teen fiction. But while the cover is gorgeous, the interior drawings from a different artist simply don't have much style or grace. In particular, the shading is muddy and overused. Will teen readers care? Perhaps not. Some potty humor; ages 13+.

    Good not amazing

    No their is no big romantic ending for Jareth and Sarah, but I can see that happening better than a big happy wedding with the two. I can't really believe that Jareth could be with Sarah without trying to control her in some way. The ending did seem a bit hurried and the art is a little uninteresting at times. Also I wish the human character's faces didn't look so similar. Jareth and Toby look almost the same which gets a little confusing in close ups until one looks at smaller details. On the other hand, I do like the fact they both admit to how deep their feelings are. I also like the total story especially the second half. The pin up gallery is very nice as well.

    Sarah and Jareth don't get married....go to fanfiction.net for better stuff

    To be honest, I wanted Sarah and Jareth to end up together. And because Jareth talked about rebuilding the Labyrinth if it would bring Sarah back, I thought that's what would happen.

    But I was disappointed to find that Jareth's love for Sarah was selfish. In the movie, he was willing to be her slave. But in the end, all he wanted was revenge. Sure he wanted Sarah to "fear me, love me, do as I say, and I will be your slave." But I doubt he'd be willing to be anyone slave, unless he really wanted something.
    And when Sarah says the final line, Jareth seems to accept defeat. Maybe he's sad that Sarah chose Toby over him, or maybe he knows that he's lost his chance with Sarah. Regardless, he seems to accept defeat.

    When Toby was off in the Labyrinth, no one seemed to notice or miss him when he didn't show up for school. Wouldn't his mother at least call Sarah ?

    Mizumi ? I hated her. She kills both of her daughters. She was bitter because she never got Jareth's heart ? What did Jareth ever do to indicate that he actually loved her ? I saw Mizumi as desperate.

    Jareth treated Mizumi pretty badly. She loved him and he basically treated like an amusement of sorts. While her own actions were bad, Jareth used Toby to escape the contract.

    In the manga, Jareth's, love is selfish. Had Sarah gone with him, I felt it would've been rushed. but because of how selfish Jareth was, Sarah might've been a good influence on him,. And she could've made the Labyrinth a better place.

    To me, I'd wanted an ending where Sarah and Jareth keep in contact and have some sort of relationship that hints that they still might end up together someday, but also that Sarah proves that she's her own person.

    It was alright

    How to explain what I felt...confused I guess. I had a feeling that what happened to Hannah would happen. I wasn't surprised by that. I also wasn't surprised by the fact that Jareth got his kingdom back and that Toby went back to his world. But Sarah and Jareth and Moppet? I guess I flow with everyone else in that I really thought they would get married. Don't get me wrong, it was a great series and 1-3 were great! Just I really wanted to see Sarah and Jareth together. Definatly not a romance if that is what you are looking for. I am still glad to see a sequal to this Jim Henson Classic and Labyrinth will always remain as a magical world to me.

    The End?

    We all wondered whether there was going to be a sequel or not. We find there is in a manga series called Return to Labyrinth. In the 4th and final volume, everything comes together with Toby, Sarah Jareth and all the other characters meeting face to face. It seemed some of the characters acted differently especially Jareth. I don't know. The ending seemed rushed and ended too quickly. I didn't hate but didn't love it either, just disappointed. The cover looked cool though. Overall, if you like the movie then you'll probably like Return to Labyrinth.

    All that waiting for nothing.

    The ending is horrible! This is not a sequel! No true sequel to the Labyrinth would have Sarah not marrying Jareth! What a disappointment!
