July's Muppet Comic Book Offerings

This week, BOOM! Studios continues their series of Muppet comic books with the second installment of their debut a four-part "The Muppet Show Comic Book" by Roger Langridge. The first issue, "The Muppet Show Comic Book #1", was released last month and was an instant top seller. "The Muppet Show Comic Book #2" will be released on Wednesday (April 29th) while "The Muppet Show Comic Book #3" will be released on May 27th and "The Muppet Show Comic Book #4" will be released on June 24th.

Roger Langridge will continue to produce Muppet comic books with a second Muppet mini-series kicking off in July. "The Muppet Show: Treasure Of Peg Leg Wilson #1" is planned to hit stores on July 29, 2009. In the new four-part story arc, Scooter discovers old documents which reveal that a cache of treature is hidden somewhere within the theater, and when Rizzo the Rat overhears this the news spreads like wildfire. Meanwhile, Animal begins acting very strangely - he's now refined and well-mannered! This new Muppet mini-series is being written and drawn by Roger Langridge and will follow a similar format and style of his original "The Muppet Show Comic Book" series.

BOOM! will release the final chapter of their other Muppet series, "Muppet Robin Hood", in July as well. "Muppet Robin Hood #1" will be released this week (April 29th); and "Muppet Robin Hood #2" will follow on May 27th and "Muppet Robin Hood #3" will be released on June 24th. This four-part comic mini-series is being written by Tim Beedle, with artwork by Armand Villavert Jr. In the final issue, the imprisoned Robin Hood (Kermit the Frog) awaits the gallows. But can the Merry Men spring Robin free and defeat Prince John? If only they could find the 'narrator' and discover how the story is supposed to end!

So mark your calendars because the Muppets' "The Treasure of Peg Leg Wilson #1" and "Muppet Robin Hood #4" will both be released on July 29, 2009. I will be sure to keep you updated with more information on the upcoming Muppet comic book series as more information become available.
