It's only forever. Not long at all.
Jim Henson's 1986 classic LABYRINTH was a childhood staple for so many of us, with unbelievably imaginative practical effects (serious Henson magic is on display in this one), endlessly quotable dialogue, and, of course, some prime David Bowie action as Jareth, the Goblin King.
That's why we're so excited that tomorrow we have a fantastic new LABYRINTH poster by Argentine artist Julian Totino Tedesco, as well as an enamel pin set designed by DKNG Studios.
There's also some other fun news to share – we've partnered with our friends over at Chronicle Collectibles, and they'll be offering an exclusive variant colorway of this poster, available only to the first one hundred orders of their unbelievable Jareth statue. So, if you're one of the lucky folks who ordered one, you'll have a variant version of this poster coming your way as well.

Julian Totino Tedesco is one of our favorite artists in comics. We've followed his work for some time, and are excited to have been able to finally work together on this poster. With Bowie's iconic Jareth front and center as the one true king of the goblins, there's a beautiful storybook quality to it that we love, and hope you do too.
"I was never drawn to goblins, wizards, mazes, and that specific type of fantasy, honestly, but I've always loved LABYRINTH and I'm sure David Bowie has a lot to do with it.
When sketching ideas for the poster, I aimed for something more conceptual or "modern" in terms of approach and design, but I quickly realized that these sketches were not in line with the spirit of the movie. In the end, I embraced a classic approach and had fun with those beautiful Henson creatures and, of course, took the chance to display Bowie – the magnificent Goblin King – big in the middle, displayed in all his glory."
We're also excited to present DKNG Studio’s reprise of their 2017 collection of LABYRINTH enamel pins with a whole new set.
Presented on a variant colorway of the original packaging design, this series contains the gentle giant Ludo, one pair of the riddle bearing Guards, and the living gargoyles – the Door Knockers. In true DKNG fashion, their choice of antiqued metals gives these pins an aged authenticity and genuine character.
