Labyrinth: Coronation is a 12-issue comic series published by Archaia between 2018 and 2019. A spin-off of the 1986 film Labyrinth, it was written by Simon Spurrier and illustrated by Daniel Bayliss.

The series is a prequel about how Jareth became the Goblin King. It takes place within the timeline of the events of the film, framed as a story told to baby Toby by Jareth during their off-screen time together. Beginning in 1790s Venice, the story revolves around an infant Jareth who has been stolen by the previous ruler of the labyrinth, known as the Owl King, and follows the quest of Jareth's mother, Maria, to rescue her son.[1][2]
