Despite my own dislike of certain aspects of the ending Return to Labyrinth Volume 4 made it to the 4th spot on the New York Times Best Seller List.
Return to Labyrinth is the four part manga sequel to the fantasy film Labyrinth starring rock star David Bowie (The Hunger and The man who fell to Earth) as Jareth, The Goblin King and a young Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind) as Sarah Williams.
In the original film Sarah had to solve an intricate maze known as the Labyrinth in order to rescue her baby brother whom she accidentally had wished to be taken by goblins. In the manga sequel Jareth has taken her brother, yet again (who is now a teenager). Jareth selects Toby to be his heir in what appears to be an elaborate bid to try to claim Sarah's heart and save his kingdom from his own loss of control as well as the cruel and manipulative Queen of Cups, Mizumi. Mizumi wants the Labyrinth and Jareth's heart for herself.
Volume 3 of Return to Labyrinth had also reached the New York Times Best Seller List last year.
Congratulations to Jake T. Forbes. I might have disliked certain things about the ending but I am happy for you.
