The Comic Muppet Book (1979, UK)

Published 1979 by Fontana Paperbacks. Written by Jenny Craven. Illustrated by Graham Thompson. Softcover, 32 pages.

This hard-to-find comic book is a lot of fun and literally includes hundreds of characters. Find out what happens when the Cabbage Liberation Movement takes over the show, and Kermit tries to get a picture taken of the entire Muppet Show cast.

Muppets At Sea (1980)

booksatsea.jpg (17937 bytes)Published 1980 by Random House, Inc. with the Muppet Press. Written by Jocelyn Stevenson. Illustrated by Graham Thompson. Concept and design by Bruce McNally, Les Skinner and John Stevenson. Cartoon story. Paperback, 32 pages.

In the form of a comic strip, "Muppets At Sea" tells the story of the Muppets taking a break from the show on a sea cruise. They end up on a broken down boat which they have to fix up themselves. Things go downhill from there, as the Swedish Chef prepares the meals, Bo weighs the anchor, and Fozzie tells lots of fish jokes.

Published 1984 by Tom Doherty Associates. By Guy & Brad Gilchrist. Comic strip reprints. Paperback, 128 pages.

Reprints of the early-80's "Jim Henson's Muppets" comic strip by Guy & Brad Gilchrist. In the early days, the strip was quite well produced, with great art and scripts that were surprisingly faithful to the original show. The strip declined in quality as it went on. This book is compilation of half of the earlier strips and half of the later ones.

Moving Right Along (1984)

Published 1984 by Tom Doherty Associates. By Guy & Brad Gilchrist. Comic strip reprints. Paperback, 96 pages.

Unlike the other comic strip books, this one is a vertical-style comic book (like other comic editions of the 80's). This edition is one of the best of the Gilchrist Muppet comic series.

The Muppets Take Manhattan Super Special (1984)

Marvel Super Special #32, published July 1984. Written by Stan Kay. Art by Dean Yeagle and Jacqueline Roettcher. 64 pages.

This is an good comic adaptation of the 1984 feature film. There are some additional lines added to the story but overall it's faithful to the movie. Some of the illustrations are poorly done, but this super special is a nice addition to your collection.

The Muppets Take Manhattan Comic Adaptation (1984)

Marvel Official Adaptation, published November 1984-January 1985. Written by Stan Kay. Art by Dean Yeagle and Jacqueline Roettcher. 32 pages each.

These three titles are the same as the Super Special except there are more ads.
