Muppet Sun-Staches Now Available!

Back at Toy Fair we told you that sun-staches would be releasing Muppet sunglasses this year. We heard a summer time frame and also that a special "Exclusive" Miss Piggy version would be available at Disney's D23 festival.

While we didn't heard if the D23 Piggy was actually being released. We did spot the Kermit and Animal sun-staches in the wild at a kiosk in Orange County California's Irvine Spectrum.

If you can't make to the Irvine Spectrum, you're in luck as the whole set is available on Amazon at the links above.

Labyrinth's Jareth Origin Comic Coming in Feb!

According to Entertainment Weekly, Archaia will release an ongoing comic that traces the origins of Labyrinth's Jareth, the Goblin King.


Writer Simon Spurrier and artist Daniel Bayliss have been tapped to produce the books and concerning the origin of Jareth played by David Bowie in the movie. 

The main cover will be be done by Fiona Staples, the subscription cover by Rebekah Isaacs, as well as 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.” 
“We’re sort of having our cake and eating it,” says writer Spurrier. “The ‘Bowie form’ version of the character is very much present in our story. But there’s a huge amount of stuff about the people who loved him and he loved. What happened to them? How did this all shake out? How did he come to be who he is?I hope that by exercising both sides of that picture, as well as leaning into all the other amazing things that are fantastic about the Labyrinth as a concept, we should hopefully get our Bowie itch scratched while also enjoying the fantastical, surreal wonder of this world.”


The first issue will go on sale in February.
