GoblinKingWatch: Entertainment Weekly looks at the Dark Labyrinth prequel comic from Archaia, and how iut will reveal the identity of the Goblin King – with the look of a younger David Bowie.

Over the course of the next 12 months, Archaia editor-in-chief Stephen Christy will have his hands full overseeing a long-rumored graphic novel based on Jim Henson’s classic fantasy film Labyrinth. “We can say it’s a prequel,” he says with understandable excitement. “It’s the story of how Jareth is brought into the Labyrinth for the first time. So, it doesn’t deal with Sarah, it doesn’t deal with Toby or anything like that.”

KatrinaWatch: An American Apocalypse, a zombie graphic novel in the aftermath of Katrina written by an ex-state senatorenator? All these things are true.

“The comic has a little different angle on zombies. These are what have been dubbed “hoodoo zombies,” not to be confused with “voodoo zombies.” Normally, in all of the zombie fiction, the zombies are part of the background, part of the environment,” Hagedorn said. “This takes a different angle, in the fact that the zombies are a part of the story itself.”

LetterWatch: From Grant Morrison and Paul Grist, creators of St Swithin’s Day, comes this one, forgotten page from a Royal Mail project called Letterbox courtesy of Deep Space Transmissions. Juliet4Romeo.
