Well, as someone who's fantasized this for a very long time, I MUST have these comics now.
I'd blame Comic Book resources.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.
That line may not sound important to anyone else, but I feel it is. I mean, sure... we've all read fan fics where Skeeter appears in the show somehow. But let's face it... it's still fan fiction. You could have Batman, Wolverine and Goku have a three way brawl in the Muppet theater and it wouldn't seem strange. James Bond could show up... it's basically a nice "what if?" situation but it still is just that. Muppet Studios and the team that works with the Muppets supervise the content of these characters. They could have easily said "No way! Skeeter doesn't fit into Muppet Canon, and we have no desire to put a Muppet babies [read- Cartoon] character into the series at all."Special thanks to our friends at the Muppets Studio for letting us do it!
This is been re-iterated multiple times, but it deserves another say: This is EPIC.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 to.
So until someone from Disney proper officially states 'Skeeter is legitimately part of current Muppet canon', just take our comic story as a very lucky, fortunate diversion for Muppet lovers.
What happens after this is wide open.
