MUPPET SHOW #2 (OF 4)
What did the
Do you have a kid? Were you at any time a kid? Are you, like me, an irrepressible, fuzzy manchild? Buy this book. Support a great company producing smart comics for all ages. Call it an investment in the future, then flip it open and enjoy it on its own merit. I got plenty of wocka-wocka’s out of it. You probably will too, considering my near unnerving track record for recommending awesome books.
Roger Langridge nails the tone and character of the Muppets with furry aplomb. Not just the icons either. The interludes are poetry in themselves (sometimes literally; actual poetry). Most importantly, he refrains from talking down to kids. This is an intelligently scripted comic which just so happens to be about a troupe of wacky puppets trying to put on an entertaining show. I think Jim Henson would be proud of this wonderful nonsense.
