(I think it's about time for my yearly inquiry!)

So I gotta ask, what exactly are the goblins in GND?  By which I mean, are they the kidnapped or wished-away children Jareth covets?  The kids who failed to navigate the labyrinth?  Actual little goblins too silly to find a nicer monarch?  And also are they particularly magical in any way– any minor powers or clever tricks, extra toes?  (If they ARE actually the transfigured, kidnapped children, are their lifespans extended  Do they grow up?  What exactly IS an adult goblin?)

Actual little goblins too silly to find a nicer monarch?

For all the random kickings and Boggings, there aren't many nicer alternatives for Goblins,  I don't think. Who'd you send them to? The Great Goblin in the Misty Mountains? The D&D verse where they are traditionally XP-fodder? Even the Disc ain't too kind to their sort.
Possibly they are the non Chaotic-Evil refugees from such 'verses.

A lot of stuff I've not really chosen to dwell on nor develop there. I'll have a ponder. But yes, they do have some minor powers of their own, world-hopping and detection-evading and knowing how to find people and things.

I actually love the idea of the Goblin Kingdom being the place for the cast-offs of magical society (His Nibs included, maybe?)– the strange or the defunct or the not particularly useful.  Maybe the goblins are refugees, being, as you said, not quite evil enough to survive in other places.  Which could go into just so many interesting places with Sarah maybe eventually becoming Goblin Queen, as someone who doesn't fit into normal spaces in the world, or certainly didn't back in her childhood.

Judging by how his mother treats him I wouldn't be surprised if Jareth were indeed an outcast.

I have now read all or girls next door. I am in love with it. Glittery testosterone is stuck in my head.

By the way your comic is the greatest thing since tea. Just so you know. I had to mention that.
