Upcoming Labyrinth Comic
Jim Henson’s beloved 1986 fantasy film Labyrinth is getting the comic book treatment! Coming next year the Labyrinth comic published by Boom! Studios imprint Archaia will reveal origins of the Goblin King!
In the comic series, the Goblin King recounts his beginnings to Toby, introducing readers to Jareth’s mother and father in 18th-century Venice. Issue #1 of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth from writer Simon Spurrier and artist Daniel Bayliss will go on sale in February with a cover by Fiona Staples, a subscription cover by Rebekah Isaacs, and variant covers by Laurent Durieux, Jill Thompson, and Bill Sienkiewicz.
“It’s the backstory of how Jareth came to be in the Labyrinth himself,” says Lisa Henson, the daughter of Jim, and CEO and President of The Jim Henson Company. “The Goblin King, he’s not a goblin, he’s human. Many people have asked, ‘Well, how did he get there?’ So, that’s something that we thought we would explore.”
