Muppet Comic in Disney Adventures

A while back it was reported that comic artist Roger Langridge was working on a Muppet comic strip for Disney Adventures Magazine. The strip was going to debut in December; however shortly after work began on the comic Disney announced that the entire magazine would be shutting down after the November 2007 issue.

One of Langridge's Muppet comics has been released just before Disney Adventures shut their doors. The full-page comic spread features a somewhat poetic look at comedy act of the legendary Fozzie Bear. The Muppet strip can be found in the final issue of Disney Adventures (cover date "November 2007") which is on newsstands now. So you’ll want to be sure to check out the latest, and last, issue of Disney Adventures and enjoy Langridges's artful and endearing interpretation of the Muppet characters.

Langridge had stated that he had completed three Muppet strips (a "Pigs in Space" adventure, an "At the Dance" scene and the Fozzie Bear comedy act) prior to the magazine, and the comics, getting the axe. It’s unknown if the public will ever get to see the remaining two strips, but I'll be sure to keep you updated if anything surfaces.

I always read the comics in Disney Adventures Magazine since the March 1999 Issue!
