‘Labyrinth’ Getting New Graphic Novel Adaptation

After all these years, people still love getting lost in the world of Labyrinth, so BOOM! Studios has announced a brand new way to experience the timeless story.

Later this year, the publisher will release a graphic novel of A.C.H. Smith’s novelization of the 1986 film. (An adaptation of an adaptation of a movie? Sounds perfectly labyrinthine to me!) Written by Kyla Vanderklugt with art by Giorgio Spalletta, the graphic novel promises that readers will “experience the awe and wonder like never before.”

Both artists shared their excitement to work in Jim Henson’s creative world. “Labyrinth is such a unique fantasy that holds a special place in the hearts of so many,” said Vanderklugt. “It was a privilege to adapt the film into graphic novel form, and Giorgio’s art is perfect to bring the story to mesmerizing life. I can’t wait for readers to fall in love with the world and characters all over again, just as I did.” “Labyrinth is one of the films that most frightened and most fascinated me as a child,” noted Spalletta. “I am overjoyed to interpret that universe that has so influenced my imagination by getting to explore every corner of it.”

BOOM! also announced that the graphic novel also serves as the kickoff to the movie’s 40th anniversary celebration. Sure, it just turned 38, but we all know time moves differently in the labyrinth. Earlier this year, the studio republished the original 1986 Marvel Comics adaptation of the movie.

It’ll feature main cover art by Miguel Mercado, along with variant covers with art by Elizabeth Torque, Veronica Fish, and David Mack. The adventure hits comic shops on September 18, 2024.
