    The Jim Hensons Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Special is made up of a selection of unconnected short stories that feature characters from the movie. None of them have any link to the movie and dont have any greater significance other than to entertain and delight. Theres no big meaning or large narrative on display, the comic is about revisiting and enjoying the laid back world of the Labyrinth. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Aug 10, 2016

    Overall, this latest addition of stories succeeds in capturing some of the entertaining spirit of the film while appeasing fans until we can get some more tales from The Labyrinth. But with Henson and Bowie gone, can we ever return? Time to make a wish to the Goblin King. Read Full Review

    Picking this up I expected it to be a comic version of the movie, to my surprise it was actually a handful of short stories about characters from the Labyrinth. With multiple writers and artists such as Johnathn Case, Cory Godbey, Gustavo Duarte and more, you get a diverse reading experience in stories and art. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Emma Withington Aug 10, 2016

    Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Special #1is a beautifully presented anthology of tales, revisiting the world through lovingly crafted short stories and some of your favourite characters. It doesn't entirely consist of new material and lacks in the absence of Jareth, but in this year of 30th anniversary celebrations is a must have for fans of Labyrinth. It will not disappoint in quality and is highly entertaining regardless. Expect a case of warm fuzzy feelings. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 9, 2016

    A great anniversary comic that pays respects to the characters we all hold dear from Labyrinth. It succeeds at capturing some of the magic of the film, but it will make you wish for new stories rather than a check-in issue such as this. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Aug 10, 2016

    If you're a die hard Labyrinth fan who won't mind giving up two or three other comics to have this in your collection, it's an absolute buy. If you are a comics reader who appreciates art, it's a definite buy. If you are a casual fan or reader who is on the fence, the price point might have youdolefulby the end. Read Full Review
