This week, Entertainment Weekly’s Shelf Life Column revealed new details about Archaia and The Jim Henson Company’s upcoming Labyrinth original graphic novel, speaking with our editor-in-chief, Stephen Christy. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Since signing a deal in 2009 with The Jim Henson Company, Archaia has adapted several of their properties for comics, including Fraggle Rock, a lost Henson script entitled Tale of Sand, and The Dark Crystal, which got a prequel of its own in last month’s Creation Myths: Volume 1, overseen by illustrator Brian Froud. Having worked alongside Jim Henson to design and realize the unique creatures and environments seen in both Crystal and Labyrinth, Froud is a key ingredient in the mix, and will be “doing all the character designs and all the covers and conceptualizing and everything. It’s going to be spectacular.”
