So I'm a huge Labyrinth nerd. (Dance Magic Dance!) I'm such a nerd that my friends and I assigned ourselves to be certain characters in the movie (I'm sir didymus!), but that's besides the point.
So needless to say, when I was perusing at the local Borders and saw the manga "Return to the Labyrinth" I almost passed out with joy. "Another adventure with Sarah!" I thought.
So I picked it up, plopped myself on the floor, and started reading... only to stop about halfway through because I was so incredibly disappointed.
Toby is the main character. WHY IS TOBY THE MAIN CHARACTER?!?! Everything in the Labyrinth revolved around Sarah and Jerith's love for her (and crazy way of showing it...) so why is he the main character?
And the story was so boring and had nothing to do with tight pants... i was upset.
Did anyone else read it? Did i stop too soon or was it just as bad all the way through? ugh... if they do this to Newsies I'm going to cry.

I picked it up shortly after it came out, and I remember being very disappointed.. I have the second one too, but I haven't gotten around to actually reading it ^^* I want to reread the first one since I don't really remember it. The story itself I don't think bugged me too much. I mean, yeah the movie was based around Sarah and Jareth, but this isn't the movie.. It's supposed to be more based around the place, not necessarily the characters we remember.
I think the thing that irks me the most is the artwork... The cover is so nice and pretty and awesome! And the inside... isn't. x.x

I have the first two books. I'm not dissapointted it's not with Sharah cuz it's years later. Different things happen. I'd be more dissapointed if it was the exact same as the movie. Whats the point. Anyway, It's a alright story, I'm still waiting for the next book to come out though. *sigh*

I actually like it, because It's something new about Labyrinth. And in the end of the second manga, it seems as though Jerith and Sarah will be reunited when she tries to help Toby again.
