Entertainment Weekly have just posted an interesting article on the Labyrinth prequel comic Archaia comics are currently developing-
The most interesting part for people around these parts will be this-
Of course, since music also a played such a large role in the movie, Christy is hoping to see songs integrated into the graphic novel as well. "I dont know if this will work out, he cautions, but I want to do songs where theyre songs being sung (by characters) and we show the notes on the page, so you can actually play along." Which only begs the question: will these be David Bowie songs? "Were talking, he says with a smile. The budget to get Bowie to do one song would be the budget of all the books, but were talking to him to at least get his blessing or maybe an introduction or something."
He also has likeness approval, Christy clarifies, an important fact given that the (as-of-yet-unannounced) artist on the book will be drawing Jareth like a young David Bowie. "The character would be Sarahs age or a little older during the course of the story. Hes kind of a punk in his own way. Were huge fans so we know that if were getting excited, other fans will."
It will be very interesting (for me, at least) to see how this project develops, and if Bowie has any involvement at all beyond giving his permission to use his likeness.
