Get put “Under the Spell” of “Jim Henson’s Labyrinth” in a first look at the new BOOM! series
For some, the movie Labyrinth is a classic, a perennial favorite that mixes fantasy, drama, and David Bowie to create a magical world of wonder. For others, there’s at least that sweet scene where Bowie juggles that glass ball.
No matter your personal attachment to the film itself, there’s no denying Labyrinth’s place in pop culture, with its memorable characters and, yes, fantastic performance from Bowie anchoring the story. While the film has never received a proper sequel on the big or small screens, BOOM! Studios will release a follow-up this November with Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Under the Spell. Check out the first look below, along with some pretty stellar variant covers.
