Return to Labyrinth Manga : AKA I Hate Myself [Picture Break]

If you know me well enough you’ll know that my love for David Bowie runsย incrediblyย deep. And in high school, a few of my friends and I got SUPER obsessed with the film, ‘The Labyrinth‘. Starring none other than Bowie himself.

For the uninitiated, the film is from the 80s and is about a girl called Sarah who ends up wishing her baby brother away to the goblin king, Jareth, and realises she wants him back. To do so she has to get through the goblin kingdom in time and in the process learns about herself and makes friends with all sorts of creatures. These creatures are lovable and beautiful creations by Jim Henson and Brian Froud.

In 2006, Tokyopop published a manga series that was meant to be a sequel to the film in which the baby brother of Sarah, Toby, is now a teenager and ends up returning to the Labyrinth??? Honestly I’m not that sure what it is about because I know it isย terrible.

Monthly Roundup โ†ช July๐Ÿ‘Œ

So this is late and I know that. BUT I HAVE SOME VERY GOOD EXCUSES!!!

  1. I was packing a lot and doing last minute things because my flight to the UK was first on the 31st of July and then moved to the 3rd of August.
  2. I got sick almost as soon as I landed in London.
  3. My phone got stolen on like my 6th day in the city while I was looking at flats.
  4. Now it’s the 2nd week of August and I went to the Nine Worlds convention.

4 EXCUSES IS GOOD ENOUGH!!!!!!!!

Monthly Roundup โ†ช June๐ŸŒค

This month I decided to change things around a bit and focus a bit more on reading graphic novels and comics that I’ve had piling up for AGES, but never got around to reading.ย Some of which were ‘given’ to me by Net Galley in return for a review. Which is always a fun surprise, seeing as I usually haven’t heard of them!

The Little Black Fish + Take It As A Compliment [Review + Picture Break]

NetGalley is so great but also terrible because I end up requesting a buttload of books that Iย knowย I likely won’t get around to reading anytime soon.

THANKFULLY I was able to request 2 graphic novels in exchange for a review, which is a lot easier to read than a full length novel!!!

Didn’t finish my stack of short books again… But I was reading longer books too so I think that’s a good enough reason!!!!!!!! Maybe March will be the month I finish the stack and finally get to dive headfirst into my Unread section of my home library, as well as local library.

I also thought of doing a mid month book haul post, as I got a bunch of library books as -*well as bought a few second hand ones, but it’s now marchย so… it doesn’t…. feel like… there’s…. much……. point…………

Otto Fong and Sir Fong : Science Comics [IRL Adventures]

As all three of you dear readers (or not, maybe I’m just yelling into the void that is cyberspace…) may or may not know, I have been working at The Straits Times, which is the national newspaper here in Singapore, as a temp/intern Photojournalist.

I’ve been able to shoot at least two book related jobs and as a result I thought it would be a good idea to feature them here!! Especially since they are both what I would call, “Local Loves”.
