Statler: A Muppet Show comic book! Oh no, they're back to corrupt a whole new medium.The Muppet Show Comic Book, published by Boom! Kids, is, well, Exactly What It Says on the Tin: a Comic Book Adaptation of The Muppet Show. It was launched in November, 2009. It is written and (usually) drawn by Roger Langridge, who had originally wanted to draw Muppet Show comics for Disney Adventures after Disney bought the franchise. Disney Adventures got cancelled before they could run any of Langridge's material (with the exception of a one-page short starring Fozzie Bear in their final issue), but the people at Boom! Studios hired him to do a Muppet Show comic book as part of their new Disney-based imprint of kids' comics.Unfortunately, as of 2011, the comic is now on hiatus due to Disney's acquisition of Marvel Comics. The fourth and final story arc was published by Marvel in 2012.
Waldorf: Why's it called a medium?
Statler: 'Cause it's rarely well done! Hoho!
