    It's unfortunate that there's nothing on television now that can capture the unique experience that was a "Muppet Show" episode, and there probably never will be. But for just over twenty pages, Boom! has given Roger Langridge free reign to give us what is truly the next best thing. A singular and immensely talented creative mind whose goal is solely to entertain. In that respect, what's most remarkable about this book is that instead of being quick cash-in, it has turned out to be one of the most appropriate and fitting comic adaptations ever published.

    Maybe I just gave in to an overwhelming wave of nostalgic warmth. Maybe memory has blinded me to the notion that this is just another ordinary comic book. But even if that's the case, I would imagine others will be similarly moved and tickled as well. Expect the first printing of this issue to sell out quickly, so make a point of getting a copy as soon as you can - not for potential investment, but simply because you really shouldn't wait to indulge your inner child. And for those who still have that outer-child shell, you shouldn't wait to introduce them to the weird world of Kermit and his cast at the Muppet Theatre. Read Full Review

    I have a feeling that this book will prove divisive amongst Muppet fans. For some, any Muppet story void of actual puppets will inevitably prove a letdown. Yet, it feels like Langridge knows this. Instead of presenting a reverse Watchmen-esque schematic of intricate replication, he bends the franchise to work properly in a different medium - and for the most part it works. Read Full Review
