I was so excited to hear that the novelization of Labyrinth is being republished, that I decided to share some photos from an awesome afternoon I had a few years ago:

A friend and I were on an Amazon forum discussing the change in paper quality in Tokyopop’s manga, when of the publishers turned up in the forums. I mentioned that I was a big Labyrinth fan and was glad that they were publishing Return to Labyrinth (even if I didn’t enjoy that story all that much). The publisher then sent me a message asking if I wanted to help out with a bit of promotion for the manga by going on a tour of the Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles. It just happened that I was travelling there for a convention and immediately accepted. Above are some photos from our tour that day. I was especially excited to see some of the props from Labyrinth and Dark Crystal in a case in the lobby, including the statue and music box that can be seen in Sarah’s room. Also on display are two of the Skeksis from Dark Crystal which they spent a ton of money to have fully restored. The detail, which you would probably never even see on film is amazing. 

Anyway, that tour was one of the best things I have ever had the chance to do. I also got to meet with the editor that was working on the manga at the time, who was super nice! 

EDIT: since a few people are asking about the tour, to my knowledge tours are given by invite only, but I think they do sometimes have shows there.

Happy 25th anniversary to The Jim Henson Hour! Have a Digit I drew.
Special thanks to muppet-wiki, whose articles on The Jim Henson Hour and Inner Tube I used as texture. It seemed apt.

YEEEEESSSSSS

I AM BIG BIRD - review by dorkshelf.com
One of the most emotionally effective performing arts docs that’s ever been made finds former Hot Docs volunteers turned filmmakers Chad Walker and Dave LaMattina looking at the kind, loving, and sometimes tragically depressed man in the full body suit of one of the most beloved television characters of all time.

FARSCAPE the movie??
And now it seems their wishes may be coming true with show creator Rockne O’Bannon having confirmed at Wondercon that Justin Monjo is indeed penning the script for a Farscape movie, and that the movie is in the very early stages of pre-production…
