I just checked out Roger Langridge's blog, and he mentioned something about a "Pigs in Space" one-shot he'll be writing. Could this mean that he's actually writing and illustrating a full Pigs in Space comic?
That would be absolutely wonderful. I really like his PIS comics in the regular series, and since they have been in every issue so far (and they'll likely be in the 4 part arcs, since they take place during the show), it shows that he indeed likes working on them enough to make a full length one.

Yup, the artist threw Pepe in the backround. This Muppet Show comic project assumes the characters have been putting on the show all this time, so naturally Pepe would be around somewhere. :smile:

Man O Man! I have waited a whole month for it to process. Oy. This wouldn't be an issue if I lived closer to a comic book store. Does anyone have any suggestions on where (on the web) can I go, and trust, for the books? Because now I still haven't gotten 4, and I want to order Peg Leg Wilson. :concern:

If you don't want to use eBay for your comic purchases, http://www.mycomicshop.com/ seems to be a very good, cheap, reliable site. I just placed an order with them and was very pleased. Now to see if they'll ship faster than BOOM!... But if it gets here before a month is up they'll already have better shipping. :smirk:

So, does anybody know whether Treasure of Peg-Leg Wilson #1 and/ or Muppet Robin Hood #3 came out today? Peg-Leg Wilson #1 was reviewed by Tough Pigs a few days ago, but Comic Book Resources hasn't shown any previews for them.

The Diamond Comics shipping list for this week (http://previewsworld.com/public/default.asp?t=2&m=1&c=6&s=428) lists Peg-Leg #1, so it's a safe bet it made it to stores today.

Personally I've decided to just wait for the trade paperback for this mini-series; it's too much trouble scrambling to find each issue before it vanishes from the stores. Plus the collected book will cost much less. I've already bought issues 1 and 2 of Robin Hood, so I guess I'll buy 3 and 4 individually too, but those are the last single issues of Muppets I'm going to bother with. Trade paperbacks from here on!

And for people looking for online retailers, I use www.TFAW.com a lot (although mostly for trade paperbacks and graphic novels and not for new single comics, so I can't vouch for how timely their new-comic deliveries are). They're a solid, dependable store for all kinds of comics-related stuff. And yes, they stock the Muppets comics.
