    Labyrinth: Masquerade is a pleasant and haunting tale. It deepens fans understanding of the inner workings of the world in specific ways that will tug at your heart. It is something I recommend for fans of all ages of the series to give a try. Boom! Studios and their creative team consistently give gems. This is another that is not to be missed. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 23, 2020

    By issue's end, there's an interesting story here about never forgetting those you love and being punished for it by being trapped in the Goblin King's maze. For how well this book works, one could imagine BOOM! Studios publishing many more one-shot tales exploring this world and the various ways one might escape or be trapped in the Labyrinth. Labyrinth: Masquerade excellently explores the fantasy world and shows promise for more one-shot tales like it. Read Full Review

    A curio of sorts, but not essential for any but the most ardent Henson fan. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Jason Flatt Dec 23, 2020

    Were each ofLabyrinth: Masquerade #1's flaws isolated or the only ones, I would feel more possitively about this comic. The concept is excellent and much of the art and coloring is wonderful. But with poor dialogue timed in the wrong places, some tonal shortcomings, and an totally detractive B-plot, it is hard for me to recommend this comic. Big fans of the movie may find it interesting and satisfying in some regards, but overall, it unfortunately dissapoints. Read Full Review
