The new Boom Kids! division is taking the family friendly sector of the comicsphere by storm! At first my fellow geeks and I might have been a little hesitant about a company having the comic rights to both the Pixar catalog and Henson’s beloved muppets – there is no lack of evidence on how comic companies have destroyed licensed characters – but any and all hesitation is dismissed after you read just any of the Boom Kids! titles, let alone one of the best so far: Muppets Peter Pan!
Sam the Eagle has it out with the narrator… Peter Pan learns to fly using piggy-dust… Janice is the free-thinking eldest daughter… This is all creative genius coming from relative unknown Grace Randolph. Fantastic and funny! And the art from Amy Mebberson is quite possibly the best I have seen come out of Boom Kids yet! Her pages capture the Muppets with perfect precision! I do not hesitate to recommend this book and will all but guarantee this will become a family favorite! This is a new standard!
