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! Julian is one of our favorite artists currently working 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." - Julian Totino Tedesco
