The Muppet Show Comic Book #2 (of 4) (Boom! – Langridge)
Acclaimed creator Roger Langridge continues his madcap romp across The Muppet Show stage! In this hilarious issue, Fozzie’s comedy act is even more terrible than normal! When he asks for Gonzo’s help with his routine, Fozzie might just break more than his funny bone!
Roger Langridge shows that he is more than just a one-hit wonder with this month’s issue of the Muppets. Once again, he nails the the characterizations, the lovable humor and the overall rambunctious joy that is Jim Henson’s legacy.
This four part series is broken up so that each issue still includes the familiar factors that made up the classic TV show, but each issue focuses in on an ongoing story of a particular character – this month tracks Fozzie losing and then eventually getting back his humor mojo.
The readers get a treasured, nostalgic trip through timeless skits like Muppet Labs, Veterinarian’s Hospital and Pigs in Space. Langridge’s muppet interpretation is nothing less than stellar! When this hits a trade, there will not be a better pre-teen present out there. Cannot wait for Boom!’s Muppet Robin Hood.
Issue grade: A very family-friendly and enjoyable A
