    The inner Kid in me just exploded with laughter over the issue. As I got it when I got off work and it was worth the wait indeed.

    While they didn't mention her by name, the little Muppet Babies hints were still there and worth every moment of it. :)

    Thank you so much for such an enjoyable issue of memories. ;)

    What A PHENOMENAL bit of fan service! I'm incredibly excited for this now.

    Did anyone else notice that NO ONE says the name SKEETER in The Muppet Show #4?

    She is refered to several times as Scooter's sister and as 'Whatshername'.

    Is this for legal reasons? Or something plot related we'll get answers to in a future issue?

    Also it seems Gonzo, Kermit and others don't remember her!
    And what's with Statler and Waldorf in the clouds?

    Is this the sideways Muppet Universe? It's all getting abit too much like 'Lost' for me?

    Any answers Aaron?

    Though I haven't seen it yet, I kinda figured from that preview that it was referencing Clash of the Titans. The Greek Gods lived in the clouds on Mt. Olympus and used chess-like figures to manipulate mortals. It's not only Clash of the Titans ... even Hercules had Hades using the same setup.

    Ever since the series began comic book resources has been showing preview pages for each issue before they were released (I think 13 preview pages were presented for the very first issue, but I think it now shows just five preview pages), and for the last few months tough pigs has been showing five-page previews before the release of each comic (so I haven't really been reading the previews at comic book resources since then... I think it's the same amount of coverage).

    I don't know what the terms are for showing previews, or if there are any contracts involved or what, but I'd say that if you want to make sure something remains a secret until it's officially released, put the "surprise" after the fifth page.

    oh my goodness! *wants to rush to Heroes & Dragons to purchase comic book now, but hates that they are not open at 1am...*

    I just can't wait to go and purchase this comic!

    Unless we get Roger to write several episodes, I don't think the show would be half as good as these comics. I Mean, WOW! There are some concepts that I feel outshine the actual Muppet Show. This comic is better than we ever could have hoped. Even the fairy tale comics are better than the Fairy Tale movies by leaps and bounds... even Robin hood, which was the weakest of the bunch.

    I agree if the people behind this book and the muppet youtube videos got together I think we'd have a hit on our hands.

    With Out a DOUBT! I'd love to see a new Pigs In Space Skit written by Roger and performed in a viral video. That would be a lot more interesting than yet another Beaker/Animal/Chef skit.

    Well, I purchased the comic book today. It. Is. AWESOME! Loved, loved, loved it! Can't wait to see how it turns out for the others in this little series. I got the cover A; the one with the stars; I thought it looked nicer then the one with Sam Eagle on it.

    I personally love the visual pun of obscuring the preview image of Skeeter behind a 'cannon'.

    LOL! It took me a couple of tries to realize what you just said. I agree!

    That's a fantastic comics shop, I've actually been in that new Heroes & Dragons down there. I think I will have to wait for a little while for it (unless a buddy comes through with that C2E2 variant cover by Mebberson... too awesome for words, combines 2 of my biggest obsessions: the Muppets and a certain team with ivy in the outfield).

    I wonder if they may have gotten this idea from THIS? !

    Lol, obviously not, but still worth mentioning...
