The novel will tell "the story of how Jareth became the Goblin King." The story is reported to feature a young Jareth who is taken to the Labyrinth by a witch. Jareth will be around the age Sarah was in the original film; Sarah and Toby will not play a significant role in the story.
Editor Stephen Christy has stated the graphic novel will be a "tragic story." While it is still in the early stages of development, there are plans for the novel to integrate music into the plot in some way. David Bowie is being approached by Archaia Comics in order to seek permission to use his likeness, and ascertain if he wishes to have any involvement in the project. 
Brian Froud is serving as a creative consultant on the project. Froud will be producing covers for the series, as well as character designs.
It is uncertain how many volumes of the project will be released, with Christy stating that "we might do it as a two-volume thing."
