Drtooth, you need to chill out.
I can't go into details publicly, but I assure all of you that the license leaving Boom was the best possible thing to do. Boom mishandled the Disney properties big time and I am absolutely on Disney's side in not renewing the license.
I also assure you that...
Hahahah... believe me, there is no WAY any artist is becoming 'bigger than the brand'. Disney are fussy in how the Muppets are depicted and there is just a small pool of us with only so much work to go around.
And yes, you try drawing entire 4 issue arcs in not a lot of time and see what you...
The decision over which Muppets to feature in skits are all Roger's decision.
Muppet characters wandering in the background or in the audience are mostly mine. Occasionally Roger will mention 'Put *such and such* in there somewhere', but it's mostly my call on cameos.
I'm very proud of Family...
No good. Simple reason - Disney doesn't own Farscape/Labyrinth/Fraggles/Sam & Friends/Dark Crystal. Remember BOOM! had to retouch a cover because Ernie and Bert were slipped in. Sesame Street is also not owned by Disney, so legally they have no right to use the characters in the Muppet comics...
While on the one hand - 'aw gee, people are having trouble finding it, that sucks!', but on the other hand - 'SOLD OUT? Eeeeee, yay!'
Another C2E2 note - I'll be there with BOOM! kids all weekend, obviously. But along with the special 'Wrigley Field' variant cover, there will also be...
'Jim Henson Hour' and 'Muppets Tonight' characters aren't in these comics - it's set in the original 5 seasons Muppet Theatre. So Rizzo makes it in, but no Pepe or Bean or any of those guys, sorry.
It's only in the Muppet Tales that the casting becomes all-inclusive.
I'm with Roger. Jim era for...
Nope. Cover price of $2.99 stays unchanged.
Well yes, TECHNICALLY I guess BOOM! has everything Muppety Disney owns at their disposal for these comics. But Skeeter, as we know, hasn't been seen for over 20 years and we don't know everything Disney is planning to do with the Muppets, so it's also...
While it's tempting to think this is an OFFICIAL RETURN, bear in mind that BOOM! is not Disney, we're just a licensee. Disney still retain the right to do whatever they want with the characters and they certainly don't have to take anything WE do in the comics as official canon unless they want...
Basically, Skeeter's look came very easily to me.
Once you see the full comic, there will be some other touches to her clothing that the older fans will appreciate.
I think Skeeter has an important role to play in the grown-up Muppet family in terms of what she contributes in her personality...
Wow, a new thread just for our arc? That's kinda cool.
While I'm still a little disappointed this got out before release day (we were SO excited and wanted to keep it secret until the issue was completely out), I'm very happy you guys like the return of the Prodigal Twin.
I just knew she HAD...
Someone leaked something they weren't sposed to.
We really wanted to keep this under wraps until release day.
Ah well. Spoilered now.
But here's some good news - starting with Muppet Show #4, the issues will be on GLOSSY PAPER AGAIN WHOOO!
The easiest way to start from scratch and keep in chronological is to read them in trade paperback form. The first 4 issues are covered in Meet the Muppets. The next story is the Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson, again now easily available in a trade collection
The next trade - which will be probably...
