    I got an email from Paul Morrissey; editor of Boom-Studios. The Meltdown Comics cover had to be reprinted because of an error on their logo.
    Preorders were made so the cover will be available soon.

    If anyone lives in LA, please let us know when it arrives

    Oh yes, I seem to recall a certain someone who felt this project was going to fly... ME! I love it already.

    If by somehow the comic book store won't carry said comic, perhaps they can order it for you. I know a lot of comic stores that offered to order me Ultimate Muscle when they stopped carrying it. I never did take them up on that offer, and I'm missing a lot of good ones... but that's outside the topic.

    I'm sure they can order a copy for you, if nothing else.

    Well, comic book resources now has a review of the comic, though it doens't really talk about the plot.

    Wow. What a review! "One of the most appropriate and fitting comic adaptations ever published." :)

    I really enjoy what been shown of issue one so far and agree with most of this guy's review except for his clumsy assumption that fans have been upset over these most recent Muppet incarnations of Langridge's work. Many of the earlier drawings were off the mark and have been thoughtfully corrected by the artist. The critic's statement that,"...each character is completely true to the original puppet, only translated to the fluidity and shape necessary to facilitate a cartoon..." is not true and Langridge would be the first to state that he likes working off book.

    The point is that this new comic book has found a happy medium in style and has a lot of Muppety substance. I've already commended Roger Langridge over on his blog and mean every word of it. Heck, his writing is better than much of the stuff I've seen since Muppets Tonight.

    Looks great! I really hope the only store that sells comics in my town will carry this thing!

    That's good news for me. I went to both comic stores in my area, neither had it, one is going out of buisness, and the other one only sells back issues of comics.

    I might write a review later, but the Muppet Show Comic Book gets my enthusiastic stamp of approval. It should be required reading for every Muppet writer. :flirt:

    You really sold me on it with that sentence alone! :D I'm really loving some of the previews I've seen (I'm not looking at all of them... I want to save the good stuff for when I actually buy it), and I'm really liking how his art evolved since the very first samples. Of course, I liked his work before that, but let's not get technical. I really hope this sells well enough to warrant a regular series. I haven't bother buying comics regularly for so long. I manage to get some Sonic X's when there's a sale... but that's about it.
