Wrong Movie by AsheRhyder Wrong Movie by AsheRhyder
I love comics with these two. Unfortuantely, I'm not terribly good at coming up with ideas for them.

Eventually, Erik and Jareth had to sit down and watch each other's movies. Erik's opinions of Jareth's defeat aside, we quickly discover the problem with grabbing the first movie off the shelf entitled: Phantom of the Opera.


"...Rats?" refers to the Dario Argento version of the film (same title), which takes a drastically different approach to the Phantom's story. If you've seen it, you know exactly why that expression is on Jareth's face. If you haven't... well, just trust me.

Jareth and Labyrinth(c) Jim Henson
Erik (c) Gaston Leroux, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Dario Argento

Poor Erik, he has to deal with the countless remakes of his story.

You know, I have to wonder...what if the "wrong movie" was the Robert Englund "Phantom of the Opera" or that spinoff, "Phantom of the Mall: Erik's revenge?"  What would Erik's reaction be then?

I've seen the Robert Englund version, and while it's not my favorite, it's still nowhere near as low on my list as the Argento version. Erik would probably be more resigned and annoyed; the horror movie versions tend to strip away a lot of the sympathetic qualities from his character {not that they excuse any of his actions}, and they tend to have the worst endings for him. {Also, the music doesn't tend to be as good.}

I haven't seen Phantom of the Mall, so I couldn't make a judgment on his reaction to that one, though.

I love this so much! And I don't blame Jareth for being greatly disturbed by Dario Argento's terrible adaption of POTO! I feel terribly bad for the people who were introduced by POTO by THAT movie. They probably think that POTO is a disgrace, and haven't given any other adaption a chance. Sad.
And Erik's face (when the candle pops up next to his head) is utterly adorable. And the last expression of his is hilarious with his hair standing up like an angry cat. I love it! 
Great job!

Oh my gosh... I had completely blocked that movie from memory!  Jareth said "Rats?"  And I said, aloud, "Rats?"  Paused.  "OH GOD!  RATS! POOR JARETH!"

Yikes! This is what comes of not double-checking the movie cases before sitting down for the screenings. But seriously, I blame Erik. He knows that there are multiple film versions out there, so he should have been specific (I mean, really... Claude Rains as the Phantom was interesting, too, but waaaay less dramatic than probably everybody since).

I like the "candle instead of lightbulb"!  And the shading that you do on Erik in the start of the last line. Well, actually, the shading throughout is nice. It's good to see your shading start to unfold in these early pages.
