The Return/Beginnings of Muppet/Sesame Comic Books

James Gannon – It’s been a couple weeks of inexplicable Muppet Comics news. That’s a phrase I haven’t been able to say in a while. Last year, BOOM! Studios’ Muppet license (soon followed by the rest of the Disney licenses) expired, just before the final arc was ready for publication. Roger Langridge, the writer/artist for…

Reviews from the Muppet Back-Issue Bin: Muppet Babies Comics #16

James Gannon – A while back, I discovered a Star Comics Digest that had a great old Muppet Babies comic reprinted in between some pretty mediocre/decen comics. Since then, I vowed I’d dig up the old Muppet Babies comics I had and review them right here. I cleaned that closet out and I’m ready to…

We’ll Miss You, Mr. Langridge

James Gannon – News broke out last week on Roger Langridge’s blog, The Hotel Fred, that he plans to leave The Muppet Show Comic Book. While there are some very personal reasons (which are his own business and I think we should keep it that way), he also feels that it’s time he moved on…
