    I picked up issues one and two a few days ago. I didn't read them not, just kind of "skim" though them, but like what I saw so far. Looking forward to reading the whole thing.
    I also wouldn't mind picking up a copy of the Darkwing Duck comin, but I haven't seen it yet.

    And I suppose Fozzie, the Argyle Gargoyle, a frog with distinctive pupils, and Dr. Teeth just happened to sneak onto the first page of Darkwing Duck issue #2, eh?

    I'm loving this art. Your art is good with the Muppets, but it shines in the DWD comic. You have that style down pat. And as a longtime fan (and the twerp who's been running The Negapage since the mid-'90s) I know DW!

    And back to MSW #1 - somebody please tell me I'm not the only one who was ridiculously amused by Gonzo's "sleeping outside the coop" comment.

    Do you know what this means? This means that Muppet Wiki can now have a page about Darkwing Duck. SWEET!

    I didn't notice Angus McGonacle, though I saw part of a Muppet chicken on one page.

    Oop! I saw the chicken, but forgot to mention her. I couldn't tell if she was Camilla, Ethel, or Bernice. Maybe I should ask Gon... no, never mind.

    Wow! You people are GOOD! I might have to have a contest or something to pick out all my little easter eggs. Although all the muppet people might have too much of an advantage.

    I'm glad you like the stuff Slackbot. I visit your page all the time, especially when I was first researching for the first issue.

    And not to plug too much but you can get all the comics (including DW and muppets) from the Boom site directly. i know Darkwing sold out in most places.

    Of course if anyones going to Comic Con, you can pick up stuff there and get them signed by me (and Amy and Roger too I believe)

    Sorry for Hijacking the Snow White thread

    Hey, no problem at all. I Agree, I love your Muppet Comics stuff, but you and the writer embody the spirit of Darkwing Duck. I've seen a lot of DW comics in my day from Disney publishing's 4 part adaption of the origin episode to the Disney Afternoon Marvel comics and the Disney adventures in between, and I haven't seen anything half as good as the first issue of the Boom series.

    While not Muppets, I also noticed Woody from Toy Story in that Darkwing Duck preview. And I saw what is probably Mr. Potato Head, but the face looks more like JP Grosse to me.

    *laughs* I had so much fun looking at that page. Give me a background full of nifty stuff and I'll comb through it for Easter eggs. Here's the list I posted in another forum:

    Fozzie Bear
    Angus McGonagle, The Argyle Gargoyle (a very obscure Muppet)
    Ants in My Pants
    A frog with Kermit-like pupils
    Little Toot
    Nerf gun
    Mickey Mouse-like hand and foot
    Ghost Monster
    Millennium Falcon
    Mr. Potato Head
    Woody (from Toy Story)
    Tea set much like the one in Beauty and The Beast
    Yellow Submarine
    Donkey Kong
    Camilla the Chicken
    Stretch Armstrong
    Dr. Teeth

    HANDS DOWN the best art/coloring of any of the Muppet titles out there. Just picked up #2, extremely impressed. I dig Mebberson, Langridge, but something about this particular book's art/inking/color style really popped for me. Cant wait to see this team tackle other Muppet comics. Instead of the fairy tale book stuff, Id love to see other side stories set in a contemporary setting featuring the muppets.

    I wassurprised with who the new 7th dwarf was. He's not originally from The Jim Henson Hour.....right? Someone give me the scoop.

    Well... Who is the new 7th dwarf?

    He was in some dog food commercials back in the '60s. I hear he's buddies with the La Choy Dragon, who helped him land this spot in the comic.

    Oh yeah, I remember the Purina commercials!

    Here's what I'm thinking. There seemed to be a lot of the original concept that Muppets Studio suggested the writer into going a slightly different direction. Not meddled, not violated creative vision for... just suggested. However, Count.... there were a LOT more acts that auditioned... and for spoiler's sake....

    Johnny and Sal
    Mr. Poodlepants
    Clifford (appeared in one pannel standing nest to the piano)
    Angus the Gargling Gargoyle
    Mahnah Mahnah
    Marvin Suggs
    The Jughuggers
    Wayne and Wanda
    Bobby Benson and 3 babies
    Geri and the Atrics
    Dead Tom

    So, I'm guessing that something may just be up with the Jim Henson Hour characters, though I'm not sure what exactly the ownership policy on them is. Still wonder who the heck owns Beautiful Day myself.

    I also vaguely remember that Animal was supposed to keep sneezing every so often. but I guess that was changed.

    But those are basically trifles for me. I'm loving this series, possibly even more than King Arthur... and that was my favorite.

    Thanks Drtooth. Can count on you and your insightful expertise in the field of animation/comics. :)

    When I read that interview, I expected them to constantly audition new dwarves in each issue, finally selecting a new seventh dwarf in the very last issue.

    Considering two very obscure characters (Lips and Spamela) have featured parts in this, could it be possible that Boom or Disney thought that was enough and wanted a more recognizable Muppet character as the new seventh dwarf?

    I saw what looked to be Weezey from Toy Story 2 and Hamm from all three Toy Story movies.

    I read at the tough pigs forum that the third issue of Muppet Snow White came out today, but previews didn't make it online yet. Anybody see the latest issue?
