This is what appears to be a very rare Chinese bootleg comic of Labyrinth, and it’s rather fascinating. They made several strange and head-scratching choices, including depicting Sarah as a younger girl and having Jareth boast green screen and some truly fiery orange hair. This is quite something! The date on the back of the comic is 1991, so this does seem to be a vintage bootleg rather than something more recent. 

Can anyone read/translate the text?

Fun fact! Originally, Brian Froud designed Sarah’s hair in an up-do for this scene but her parents thought she looked too grown up so they had to re-design it and he just made it thick and full and incorporated these lovely silver leaves and ribbon into them. It’s also the reason why I adore big, poofy, and voluminous hair and dresses. This was a blast to draw. 

Real talk. So I was watching “Labyrinth” and I noticed in Sarah’s little scrapbook something that makes me so sad. Because you know she went through the newspapers and picked out stories of her mom because her mom wasn’t there. And they’re all glamorous stories about her mom and her new boyfriend with her awesome life and she wants to be a part of it because you can see like one photo of them together. And she’s drawn a bunch of hearts around her and stuck some stickers all over. And they’re Robin Hood stickers which makes me think maybe they watched it together when she was a little girl because Sarah links things and just. Oh my god Sarah makes me so fucking sad.

When Bowie came on set, he had with him who we called the bulldog, his personal minder. She came around to all of us and told us “Mr Bowie is sitting in his chair and he doesn’t wish to be disturbed. When Mr. Bowie is smoking a cigarette, that means Mr. Bowie is having personal time to himself and doesn’t wish to be disturbed”. So to the Muppet people, it was like “Oh, Mr. Bowie is having a hard time coming out of his shell. Well we’ll show him”. So we completely ignored everything she said to us, and within a week and a half, he was having so much fun with us, that he told her to go home and that she wasn’t really needed around here. He totally just got into the family, the one big family Jim created.
