    Hehe - I've got a really fun twist planned for that PiggyTink / Peter Pan moment, so I'm glad to see you put it on the cover, Amy! :)

    I also love the use of light in the night in David's cover, and I'm working very hard to have a lot of scenes at night to play that up. To me, Peter Pan is a story that glows - in more ways than one!

    On another note, I hope that if any of you live near Anaheim you will come out for Disney's D23 Expo! I'm going to be there at the BOOM! Studios booth most of Saturday (9/12) and all day Sunday (9/13), and I believe Amy will be there as well. Please stop by and say "hi"!

    I have one thing to address about these comics ( of which I am a fan - I buy 3 copies each) Why is the there not a Rizzo Sub plot in every one of these? - I refer you to the movies. It would be nice to have the Rats doing what they do in these comics.

    I am happy to say that Muppet Peter Pan #1 goes on sale THIS WEDNESDAY, September 23rd!

    I hope that everyone checks it out and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it here on the Muppet Central Forum!

    Also, as for Rizzo, you'll see he has a pretty big role starting in issue #2...

    Woohoo! Can't wait.

    (What about Yolanda Rat? Kidding.) :shifty:

    Are you allowed to reveal whether there will be more pirates and lost boys besides the ones pictured on the various covers?

    Well sure...but what fun would that be? ;)

    Yeah... I like to be surprised by these books. I try hard not to flip through them coming home after I bought them... and I can't even muster up the will power to not quickly glance at it... I'd rather read these things at home in the quiet, when I can really experience them and give all my attention to them. But you know... you just have to take a peek...

    www.comicbookresources.com now has a preview for the first issue of Muppet Peter Pan, and I must say, I like what I've seen so far in this issue.

    I do too! The artwork is beautiful.

    Sam's eyebrow looks much better here too. (It was a little thick and almost in kind of a "furry" style on Amy's first Robin Hood cover.) That was the only thing keeping that character design from being an absolute masterpiece IMHO. :attitude:

    I can't wait to see the rest of it. So far it's at a 100% for me. :super: Her Miss Piggy-tink is so refreshing after years of other artists' poor characterization. Sure, the pig is chubby, but (other than season one) she's also pretty.

    Yeah, the Robin Hood cover was the first time I drew Sam, so he looks a little off now compared to how he looks in Pan. I'm more solid with him now ;)

    I was most worried about Sam, but he and all of it turned out so gorgeous. Your drawings in Pan remind me of the illustrated Muppet books I grew up with. Fans have a lot to look forward to. :)

    I need to add that I hope Boom! overworks you on Muppet comics. ;)

    Peter Pan is so stunningly beautiful. I absolutely adore it! Sam is PERFECT! I love his mouth expressions! Amazing. I love, love, love it! I cannot WAIT to get my copy!

    The writing is also BRILLIANT! Of COURSE Sam wouldn't stand for a British story--HA! Perfect. I loved the DVD commentary line. This is such a refreshing change of pace from Robin Hood. :D

    Yay! I'm so glad to hear you all like the preview! :)

    Yeah, sleep and social life, who needs it? ;p
    Besides, drawing every single Muppet comic would be greedy!
    But I definitely WILL be drawing other Muppet stuff next year.

    Sam is fun to draw because he's so deadpan. Not to mention, Grace has nailed his attitude perfectly.

    Oh yeah.. I've been thinking that for a while... those grand old Muppet books like "Case of the Missing Mother" and "Muppet Manners (Or the Night Gonzo Threw a Party)" I almost wish they'd make more just like that and hire Amy to draw them. Those would be amazing... but the comics are even cooler than that.

    Muppet Wiki claims that Sam the Eagle will play Mr. Darling. Does anybody know what this source was? The review only mentions that Sam takes over as the narrarator, it would make more sense for Gonzo to play Mr. Darling since most versions of Peter Pan have the father and Captain Hook played by the same person, and Camilla plays Nana (is Nana the mother or the dog?). I don't expect Grace or Amy to confirm this until a few days.
