Many cartoon artists create these harmless background cameos. It's no biggie and it's usually done with a wink and a nod unless the characters are doing something distasteful. :cool:

I'm pretty late when it comes to these comic books of course. But I'm loving adding these to my collection now.

The very first one I bought off ebay. Which was the very limited Ultimate Comics variant of issue #4: the Miss. Piggy story. Done by the very talented Amy Mebberson.

But since I'm keeping that pretty much untouched, I got the "Meet the Muppets" paperback of all four issues. I can't wait to read it, really soon.

Tough Pigs now has a new interview with Roger Langridge, which includes some spoilers for "On the Road", information about the issues after that storyarc, and more.

Gotten so behind on these books! :crazy: Finally picked up Peg Leg Wilson # 3 at a Borders. Langridge did a very good job at keeping each issue entertaining enough on their own. And I'm loving his art for the Electric Mayhem. They need a spin off, I say! :attitude:

From that interview:
"So there'll be four issues of human guest stars — Hamlet, Sherlock Holmes, Cleopatra and Victor Frankenstein. Plus a couple of pages featuring Galileo which I'm probably far too pleased about for my own good."

Hands up, everyone - besides myself, how many people upon reading that automatically got Bobo in their head singing "Galileo Galileo..."

Loved Pigs In Space - even though i love RL and want to see him doing the comic as long as possible (and i seem to be in the minority of fans here that prefer it when he goes wilder with drawing the charactes) i had hoped that the comics would provide a chance to see a wide variety of artists working on the titles as i like seeing how different comic artists represent them and this one-shot was a really cool chance to see a different look at the characters.

...and for what it's worth, i would SO tune in to a Wayne and Wanda Night Fever.

Is King Arthur delayed because Peter Pan 4 delayed? Just asking before hand so I don't go crazy trying to look for it tomorrow.

King Arthur IS delayed, but it's nothing to do with Pan.
But yeah, last I heard, King Arthur 1 will be out end of Jan.

No matter... I was able to pick up one of Boom's translations of Italian Donald Duck comics instead. I'm loving those just as much.

I find it odd that in the "On the Road" stories that Fozzie will become a solo act, performing on streets. I would have thought a storyline like that would be better if the Muppets weren't doing a touring show. Like maybe four issues where Fozzie leaves the theater while the show is still going on.
