THE UNTOLD ORIGIN OF THE GOBLIN KING Time is running out. War rages at the Owl King’s castle as the goblin rebellion spins out of control. While Skubbin, Tangle, and Cible try to hold off the enemy hordes, Maria must face the King and the cost of protecting her boy from a life of misery. Up until the clock strikes 13, Maria holds onto the one truth she’s learned while facing the trials of the maze: in the Labyrinth, nothing is as it seems. With a story provided by Simon Spurrier (Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal) and written by Ryan Ferrier (Kong on the Planet of the Apes) and illustrated by Daniel Bayliss (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons) and Irene Flores (Heavy Vinyl), Labyrinth: Coronation Volume Three brings the critically acclaimed prequel of Jim Henson’s beloved film to its stunning conclusion.
Can a man ever be free of his past? Can the tides of time ever wash
away the bloody sands of sin? Or do transpired trespasses permanently
and inescapably stain one’s soul? After conquering Zeus and
thwarting Athena, Kratos believes himself to be finally free from his
bondage. He sets sail for the desert in an attempt to distance
himself from his home and his shame only to find his rage and guilt
follow close behind. Kratos rages against the one foe that has proven
to be unconquerable—himself. But a war against oneself is unwinnable,
and only invites madness. Collects God of War: Fallen God #1–#4.
