    BOOM! Studios is planning to follow-up their four-part "Muppet Show" comic book series with a four-part Muppetational retelling of "Robin Hood". The new series is being written by Tim Beedle, while the artwork is being done by Armand Villavert Jr.

    Robin Hood (Kermit the Frog) and the Merry Men take on the stuffy Sheriff of Muppetham (Sam the Eagle) and the wicked Gonzo of Gisbourne (The Great Gonzo). The four issue mini-series will also feature special collectible covers by David Peterson and Shelli Paroline.

    WHOA! A new artist! That's AWESOME! The artwork looks GREAT! I look forward to seeing what this guy can do! So far it looks incredible! Can't wait to see more about this! I KNOW I'll be getting this one! :D

    Ah, I think that's amazing... right there, having a different artist for Muppet comics really makes the idea pop (what I've been saying all along). The art looks a lot more storybook in this one, and considering that it is a storybook comic, I like that change. I really want to see more art samples (we've seen a lot of the other guy... but then again, he planned most of those comics a year or more before they were published)

    I'm not as excited about this as I am The Muppet Show comic booc, but I wonder who will play Little John. I'd expect Fozzie, but he's playing Friar Tuck. I woder if Robin will play Little John (which would be ironic since he's not Robin Hood).

    From that cover I expected Sweetums to be a henchman.

    In nearly every adaptation of Robin Hood the first meeting of Robin and Little John is a staff fight to cross the river.

    I was going to Guess Sweetums before seeing that pic as he is huge....a bigger role for a smaller character but it fits....and then after seeing that pic I would say it is solid.

    Really? I don't recall any such meeting in the Disney adaptation, or the Lynn Redgrave episode, or the WB shorts based on the story.

    Yeah, major folklore suggests that when they first met they had a battle with staffs...although it's been constantly debated on who won the encounter. I was driving through Sherwood Forest the other day, and wondered if anyone in lincoln green would swing out in front of me and steal my spare change.

    I don't understand what cover is going to be used I love yours Muppetmonkey, but which one is going to be used.
  18. MUPPETMONKEY

    MUPPETMONKEY Active Member


    Mine is a variant cover. I guess they'll use the one who was drawn by the main artist

    Ok I think i get it. So are you going to be doing any of the comics? Sorry I'm a little late on getting in on this even though i still don't own the first comic, I'm very exited about them.

    So far I've only done two covers. According to BOOM's editor, I'll be taking over one of the comics soon.
